1 John 1:5
"This is the message we have heard from him and declare to you: God is light; in him there is no darkness at all." NIV
"This is then the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all." KJV
God is light. This means there is nothing in Him, of Him, or about Him that is absent of light or present in evil. If there is even a hint of darkness, a dimming of light, it is because there is something blocking or hindering the light. That something can only be us, our environment, or the evil one. With the Holy Spirit, we have authority over the darkness and we can remove it from hindering the light. God is light. Is there any darkness within us or around us?
Heavenly Father, we acknowledge You as the Light and pray that You would give us discernment to know when and where You are not shining brightly in our lives. We pray in Jesus' name, Amen.
