In Blackest Day, In Darkest Night...

When I was growing up, one of my top three superhero's was John Stewart's Green Lantern. I loved him so much because he looked like me and he was extremely brave in the face of alien attacks and dangerous villain's. I can remember watching Justice League on Saturday mornings and, when it was time for John to morph from his human self to his superhero self, he would always say,

"In brightest day, in blackest night,

No evil shall escape my sight.

Let those who worship evil's might

Beware my power--Green Lantern's light!"

What a powerful and amazing declaration. It reminds me that while I know John Stewart will come and rescue me form the evil villain's. There is a hero I need much more than Green Lantern. I need the light and power of Jesus Christ to keep me from darkness and to bring me into salvation. John 3:16 says, “For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.” — John 3:16 (NIV)

God loves you so very much. He loves you enough to give His Son for you,, to watch His Son die for you,, to put the sins of the world on His back for you, and to raise him from the dead for you! That is incredible love.

And because of this love, we should not fear darkness and storms. We should not hide who God has called us to be or fear the enemy surrounding us.

On your darkest days, remember that He is with you. Remember that He loves you. Remember that He will never forsake you.

Remember that His Son died for you, and all you need to do is repent and believe in Jesus and the forgiveness of sins. Then be cleansed, renewed, replace dark with light, and start again in His name. So when you feel darkness closing in, take a page from Green Lantern's book; Fall on your knees and say,

"In brightest day, in blackest night,

No evil shall escape His sight.

Let those who worship evil's might

Beware my power--Jesus' Light!"
