Out of The Dark


"That you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light" -1 Peter 2:9

He has a purpose in everything...He is so Sovereign and His care reaches deep into darkness to call us out into His marvelous light!

From a new perspective we are given new eyes...instead of giving man power over the outcome of circumstances -give God praise for His sovereignty. Instead of the blame we place on ourselves or others-can we look up and see Gods perfect plan in it all? He will allow in His sovereignty what He could stop with His power but would we learn the same lessons? Or have such great revelation of Him?

Of course we make bad decisions, other people make decisions that hurt us, break promises, abandon us, reject us, betray us because we are all just broken BUT what if God allowed these things to pull us out of the darkness we did not even see we were in?

What if this was part of His perfect plan to sanctify you? Sometimes we can't see the things in the dark room around that are going to hurt us, make us fall, or even intruders because we get so comfortable in there and our eyes adjust, so in His sovereignty He lets us fall to be restored from glory to glory.

He faithfully rescues us from that darkness by shining His light on everything harmful and pulls us out...He didn't want to see us fall down but the fall brought a cry from our pain to the throne and He faithfully answered. A cry to be rescued from the darkness.

Now the cries turn to praise and thanksgiving that we are in His arms alone, as He picks us up and becomes our fortified refuge!

He is sanctifying us all to Himself and removing everything that could potentially hurt us...Don't blame others for their decision, don't condemn yourself for yours...instead PROCLAIM THE PRAISES OF GOD for His decision to "CALL YOU OUT OF DARKNESS INTO HIS MARVELOUS LIGHT".
