“And now consider this. You know well the times you are living in. It is time for you to wake up and see what is right before your eyes: for salvation is nearer to us now than when we first believed. The darkness of night is dissolving as dawn’s light draws near, so walk out on your old dark life and put on the armor of light.” (Romans 13: 11-12, The Voice Translation)
The darkness may feel heavy and perpetual. It may seem like we are living in times of doubt, fear, and limitation. But we can wake up to what is really going on. We can look up from the anxiety and negativity and recognize a readiness. The dawn is near, for God’s spiritual reality, His goodness and Truth, are powerful and active.
It isn’t about waiting for circumstances to change. It is about walking away from that agreement to don the shroud and get used to its weight. It’s about shedding that dreary old habit of gloom and awaking to our true selves as children of light.
For this is who we are. We are those sons and daughters of God’s Love, His radiance, and His Life. We know the times we are living in, and what do these times need? They need us! They need the light, and we can usher it in with our trust, our gratitude, our hope, our joy. We can see the glimmer of God’s grace and stand at the ready to bask in the full sunshine of His goodness. For salvation isn’t a distant possibility. It is the dawn already breaking, the Love already in our hearts to be felt and shared!
