Scripture: Genesis 1:4-5
God saw that the light was good, and he separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light “day,” and the darkness he called “night.”
There’s no confusion with God. He knows what’s what. He knows what’s light and what’s dark. There’s no twilight, no gray in His vision. God is holy. And He calls things as He sees them.
Can we learn to do the same? Can we train ourselves to call the light good and make a clear division between the light and the dark, the right and the wrong? Can we look at things the way God sees them?
We don’t want to become judgmental or rigid to the point of having no compassion. But we do want to firmly settle what we believe and how we view certain actions and attitudes. We want the Holy Spirit to guide our thoughts so that we can distinguish how a Christian should act or think about a certain issue. When it’s time to make a decision or vote on something, we should be able to understand where God comes down on the questions facing us.
Christians are not uninformed people. We have the wisdom of God and the Spirit of the Creator telling us His will for our lives and our world. We have a perfect Father showing us the difference between light and darkness, and He only called one of them good.
What decisions are you facing today in which you need to see the difference between light and dark?
In what areas of your life do you need to make a clear separation between what God is telling you is right and what He’s telling you is wrong?
May God’s Spirit be with your spirit as you look through His eyes.
