Running towards the darkness.

Posted by appolus on February 24, 2021

1 Sam 17:48 As the Philistine moved closer to attack him, David ran quickly toward the battle line to meet him.

For Christians, victories are won in the depths of the valley for this is where strongholds are broken down and conquered. This is where the fight is taken to the enemy. This place is his dark domain. This is a place that we would never voluntarily go to. We would never come to this place willingly. Yet this place is where we see the gates of bronze broken down and the bars of iron cut in two.

Perhaps you are in the depths of a deep valley today and surrounded by darkness? Be of good cheer and be encouraged, for this place where the enemy would see you destroyed is actually the place where you will see victory in Christ. Your mourning shall be turned in dancing and He will put upon you a garment of praise and this spirit of heaviness shall flee before His presence.

The Christian walk is a violent one spiritually speaking. There is nothing passive about what you have been called to. There is an enemy of your soul and the Lord is the Lord of your whole life. Under no circumstances will He allow a stronghold of the enemy to exist in the depths of who you are. Consider young David as he runs towards Goliath. David runs to where the enemy is and destroys him. The Lord takes us to places that in the natural we would not go. Confrontation is the way of the Lord. It is no surprise that most folks hate confrontation yet the Lord leads us into confrontations.

Will you confront your fears today? Will you stand for the truth today? As Christians we are spiritual soldiers. We have been called to battle. And even although much of modern Christianity has been feminized this does not change the true nature of who we are. There can be no co-existence between light and darkness, whether that is inner darkness in you or in the world. Light will have its way and in this place there can be no room for darkness.

  1. Well said, Frank. At the moment false stories are being told about me because I spoke up against evil and refused to retreat. I am grateful to know God well enough through my past walk with Him that I am confident He will someday vindicate me. I know that He is worthy of me walking through this dark place for His sake.

    It seems that faith is forged in the wilderness places. In my recent experience I sense the LORD is calling out the spiritual warrior in me. It seems to be getting darker but at the same time I find people crossing my path that needs the message of hope. Our Savior is alive and well … Satan was defeated at the cross but he tries to hide that we fight from a standpoint of victory … the battle has already been won. The path is indeed narrow but Jesus is right there with His own … never to leave or forsake us. We must keep our focus on Jesus … His Word and we must be always submitting to His call. No fear … greater is HE that is in me than he that is in the world. Amen.
