Let Him Turn On the Light

by: Brittany Deegan

When the Lord shines His light on broken places within us, it’s because He wants to bring us into more truth, greater healing, fresh renewal… and freedom!

Jesus spoke to the people once more and said, "I am the light of the world. If you follow me, you won't have to walk in darkness, because you will have the light that leads to life. John 8:12 NLT

Have you ever been standing in a pitch-black room when someone turns on a bright light? Suddenly you can see clearly what you couldn’t see at all before. You blink for a minute, open your eyes, and discover what’s actually around you. Now you can move freely, using all of your senses instead of just a few.

That’s how the Holy Spirit works in our hearts and minds. The enemy works in darkness. He plants lies where light isn’t shining because then they can grow, ugly and undetected. The Holy Spirit isn’t fooled. It’s like He has laser vision. He sees the lies we may have believed, knowingly or unknowingly. And He turns on the light.

That’s when it gets exciting! Any time the Lord shows you an issue, it’s because He loves you and He wants to help you deal with it. Never hide from His light; always run to Him. He’s waiting to give you better gifts— truth, healing, forgiveness, and whole new ways of thinking.

The Lord is our teacher. He loves to shows us his Heavenly perspective by bringing light and truth. Is He turning on the light for you right now? What burden is He ready to take away? And what gift is He waiting to give you?


Abba Father, You are so good! You are the Father of light, and darkness cannot hide from You. We want to see from Your holy perspective. Will You turn on the light for us today? We want to live in the full freedom You purchased for us.
