For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light. Ephesians 5:8-9 NIV
God restores us. In His restoration we who were once dark are now light. The darkness has been lifted and God pours streams of light into us. With restoration we are in God and He in us. The light of God repels all darkness and attracts only light.
Being restored to sanity does not mean that we are restored to a place we once were. Why would God restore us to a place that had eventually led us to insanity in the first place? No, He restores us to where we were originally meant to be. We are restored to being children of the light.
His grace is amazing. God wants us to experience Him in everything. He wants all of us. We get to be children filled with the light of God. All we have to do is allow God to transform us. He takes us out of the darkness and into the light. And from the light we become light. We are restored to a new being.
The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So let us put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light. Romans 13:12 NIV
Father God, I want to be live as a child of light. I want to revel in your restoration. You take away the darkness of insanity and make everything light. Thank you for your son Jesus who made a way for me to dance and play in brilliant light.
