Written by Tia McCollors, a contemporary Christian author.

The darkness is deceiving. It turns objects into things they aren’t and can heighten the intensity of our fears. We stop in our tracks during a midnight trip to the bathroom, frozen for a moment by the snake lying in the middle of the floor. We quickly realize that it’s the braided belt we wore with our favorite dress earlier that morning to Sunday worship service. The shadows of dogwood trees brushing against our bedroom window bring joy and singing birds in the morning, but transform ominous shadows at night and unrecognizable noises at night.  The enemy of our souls knows that walking in the darkness clouds our judgment and darkens the path to our true source; that source, being the Lord God Almighty. When in dark or fearful situations, turn on the light. God’s word is a source of light. Psalm 119  tells us that it is “a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.” Find scriptures that apply to your concerns and declare the word of God aloud. You don’t have to walk in the enemy’s darkness if you turn on the light of Jesus.


From the Mozarabic Rite, a liturgical rite of the Latin Church once used generally in the Iberian Peninsula (Hispania), in what is now Spain and Portugal. 

Let Thy mercy, O Lord, be upon us, and the brightness of Thy Spirit illumine our inward souls, that He may kindle our cold hearts, and light up our dark minds; who abideth evermore with Thee in Thy glory. Amen.
