#5233 – Greater than Darkness

Good morning people who love and celebrate the light.

I believe this is an important one for us as believers in the days that we are living in.

As we saw yesterday, from darkness God created light. In this moment, we see evidence that God is greater than darkness.

Many people fear the darkness. I myself am not a great fan.

But there are two sides to this that we must see.

Genesis 1:4 NIV God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness.

God saw the light was good. This reality has not changed.

1 Timothy 6:16 NIV (God) who alone is immortal and who lives in unapproachable light, whom no one has seen or can see. To him be honour and might forever. Amen.

But God also doesn’t want us to fear darkness.


Because God is greater than darkness!

Psalms 139:11-12 NIV If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.

John 1:4-5 NIV In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

God Himself wants us living in the light; this is His plan.

But when you find yourself in darkness, don’t fear it, because God is greater than darkness!
