Let us declare to the darkness we have had enough

Featuring Dennis Jernigan Posted on February 18, 2010

"...Let us declare to the darkness we have had enough..."

Have you ever gotten to a point in one of the rooms of your house...like with a family room or attic or even a garage where the clutter from years of collection has simply left you so overwhelmed you dread even going into that room? Its easier sometimes to just ignore the mess or simply avoid that room than to deal with the task of cleaning it out! There comes a point where we have had enough and we dive into the mess and start throwing things away...and it feels good! It should be no different in the rooms of our mind. Why do we ignore the messes we have made of our lives and continue to avoid dealing with the issues that could bring us freedom? We avoid pain and we tend to want that freedom without the work required. What areas of your life need a good cleaning out?

Allow the Lord to bring to your mind rooms in your life that you have been avoiding. Be prepared to receive and practice the wisdom He will bring to help you through the cleansing process.
...for you were formerly darkness,
but now you are Light in the Lord;
walk as children of Light
(for the fruit of the Light {consists} in all
goodness and righteousness and truth),
trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord.

Do not participate in the unfruitful deeds of darkness, but instead even expose them...
Ephesians 5:8-11 NASB
