We live in a word framed world. When there was an ugly darkness upon the surface of the earth, God said, “let there be light” and light sparked off (darkness bowed out).
In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him, and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life: and the life was the light if men. And the light shinneth in darkness; and darkness comprehend it not (3.John.1:5).
This very important, God spoke (He did not cry) and darkness was dispelled. The bible says, speak unto this mountain.. Listen, the mountains you’ve not spoken to are the ones you’re still seeing (What you don’t say, you’ll never see and what you don’t despise, you’ll never dominate). Life and death are in the power of the tongues (Prov.18:21).
Behind all struggles, there is a power of darkness. Darkness reigns until light prevails. Light is light. In most cases, we got my light through the light of others. For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light (Psalm 36:9 KJV). You can hunt after light by first identifying the people who are in light, collect their materials, and study them as you believe God to anoint your eyes to see what they see.
But the sad thing is that we are in a generation arrogant people. Pride has taken the order day and rub many off their glorious destiny.
The word of God is the light’s sparkler. The bible is the solution book. It prescribes multipurpose solutions to all human problems. The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple (Psalm 119:130). Your struggle ends the day you locate and put into work the word that addresses your issue.
you can’t be in light and darkness. The two governing forces that dominate the word are mutually exclusive. It’s either you’re enthroned by the force of light or dethroned by the force of darkness. God forbid, you can’t serve God and mammon (God and devil). It’s either you love one or hate the other.
This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all (1 John 1:5).
You need to stop blaming the devil for everything. Principality isn’t your problem; your problem is ignorance.
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…(Hosea 4:6).
Jesus frowned at the lawyers for taken the key of knowledge because He understood how crucial it’s to be lighted.
Woe unto you, lawyers! for ye have taken away the key of knowledge: ye entered not in yourselves, and them that were entering in ye hindered(Luke 11:52).
ILLUMINATION VIA THE POWER OF BOOKS
Books can be highly illuminated, especially the anointed books (or even blogs and podcasts).
Paul was a strong advocate for knowledge, he knew the importance of knowledge and told his ministry son, Timothy, “study to show thyself approved (2.Tim.2:15).”
Jesus was an addicted reader when He was here, we were told in the scripture that He had a reading custom (or better still, a reading culture). And He came to Nazarreth, where he had been brought up: and, as his custom was, he went into the synagogue on the sabbath day, and stood up for a read (Luke.4:16).
Even Daniel, the great statesman, said “I understood by books” (Daniel.9:2).
You can’t be lighted and be afflicted. The devil can only cheat you when you’re ignorant of what the word says about you. Light and darkness do not coexist (God is light, in Him, there is no darkness at all). The major determinant factor of your envious destiny is LIGHT. It’s the quality of your light that determines the quality of your life. Your struggle ends when your light gained divine approval.
