Do you ever wonder why everything seems so dark?
Is there anyone you can trust? Or anywhere you can go where there aren’t terrible things going on?
Have you ever seen those dogs that get their head stuck in a sand bucket from the kids playground? They are featured often times on America’s Funniest Home Videos. We laugh at them floundering around in their own perceived darkness. But boy, are they scared! And have you ever tried to get the bucket off? They fight you don’t they because they don’t trust and can’t see you.
Well, the devil does this to people all the time. He sales them on a gimmick of God, and puts a black bucket over their head. They run head-long into trouble. They are scared and everywhere they look they are surrounded by cramped darkness that just will not end. We might even hear a voice from outside the darkness trying to tell us to stop for a second so they can help, but they don’t trust it.

Can you imagine that?! For two months that poor dog was suffering but didn’t know how to get help. How many of us are like that? We stop going where we get the help and get tricked into having a bucket put around our head. Our view of the world becomes skewed.
Light always dispels darkness.
ALWAYS! Darkness cannot dispel light. It has no power over it. The light just is. God just is. I’ve noticed that the more I publish darkness, or allow darkness to rule in my life, through media, evil thinking, unprofitable conversations, the less good I feel about myself, life and everyone around me. I focus on the dark, then my world becomes dark. That doesn’t mean the whole world is dark or there isn’t any light. It means I need to get back to the light. Or maybe, I just need to have someone help me get the bucket off my head.
“Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling; One Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.” Ephesians 4:2-6
“The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have [it] more abundantly.” John 10:10
Have you heard the phrase,
“When you’re down, bury your head in the Word and don’t come out until you feel better.”
God has been chasing you around His property. He’s out looking for you every night and day. He won’t give up. Let Him help. Get into a place that will teach you the rightly divided Word of God without apologies. Go back to the Word! If you’d like to join us tonight and every Wednesday night for our hour in the Word, please do. Below is an invite that is a clickable link. It will go live at 6 pm tonight MST. Come and have some laughs, learn a little and enjoy the fellowship of some lucky puppies just like you. 🙂
