COMMAND THE LIGHT TO SHINE OUT OF THAT DARKNESS;
“For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts…But we have this treasure in earthen vessels…”(2 Corinthians 4:6-7).
There are two vital things I want to highlight from the opening scripture. Firstly, it says that the light of God is in our hearts. Secondly, the scripture didn’t say “God commanded the darkness to become light” neither did it say “God brought light into the darkness.” You see, either of these two statements is good but what this scripture really says is even better. “For God…commanded the light to shine out of darkness…” (2 Corinthians 4:6). Can light come out of darkness? Light and darkness don’t mix. Yet the Bible says that God commanded the light to shine out of darkness.
Remember, the earth was a chaotic mass that was enveloped in complete darkness (Genesis 1:2). But at His command, God brought order to the maddening chaos and light leapt out of the looming darkness. As a child of God, you have received the same ability; you can call the light out of darkness. 2 Corinthians 4:7 says “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels…” There’s a treasure in you; it’s a treasure of love, light and divine perfection. God has shined in our hearts and given us the ability to bring light out of darkness. Therefore, make a change in your situation today. There’s no problem too hard that you can’t solve, no situation is too hopeless that you can’t change.
If you feel pain in your body for example, turn to where the pain is and say, “I command the healing to come out of this pain in Jesus’ Name.” The reason some Christians are full of regrets, suffer all kinds of problems and even die is that they are ignorant of their inherent ability. Joel 2:28 says, “And it shall come to pass afterward, that I will pour out my spirit upon all flesh; and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy.” These are the last days and the Spirit has already been poured out. If you find yourself in any predicament, prophesy your way out of it for God has given you the power to command light out of darkness.
