It doesn't take much light to extinguish the darkness - be one

Our bedroom is dark. We have blackout curtains that eliminates all light at night.  Streetlamps and such.  If Peggy goes to bed early and I come in later there is nothing for me to find my way to the bed.  It is very dark and I don't want to disturb her.

I do have a light.  It's the "On" light to my charger for the phone.  It's a small blue led.  It isn't much but it's enough to keep me from stubbing my toe at night.

As I did this again last night I heard the Lord say, "It doesn't take much light to defeat the darkness does it"?

As I thought about this and thought about all the scriptural things regarding light, light of the world, let your light so shine and the whole thing I came to realize that we don't need to be a superstar light to defeat whatever dark the enemy brings our way.  In fact being just a small light is enough. 

The big stars on TV, on platforms, in churches, at rallies and all kinds of other high visibility places can be light.  Some however are not.  They don't bring real illumination.  They expand the darkness.  I won't point them out, but many are evangelists of the Deep Dark.  Agents disguised as light.

Many years ago Pappa Joe Frankhauser said to me, "Always follow the path of more light".  It has led me to where I am today.  I have followed the light and as the light has come I have been able to become light for others.. Even in this posting.

Surely we all know how much the enemy wants to use even the verse "satan comes as an agent of light".  We don't have to fear the light if we live in discernment.  I have seen this again and again.

My word for you is "Be Light to the World Around You".  You have people who need light, people who are discouraged, people who are going down a dark path.  Be light.  You don't have to be a bright light, it only takes a little light to crush the darkness. 

When I got this I thought of Don Potter and the Song "I have a light" 

It seems right to post it here:

What a great song and inspiration! Thank You Gene, this was a great start to my day and I will make sure to let my light shine bright on all I encounter today.
