Darkness hates the light, because light overcomes it.
In good times and in bad, look for light. Call for God who is light. In Him is no darkness at all.
Darkness disguises itself as light. It dangles carrots, hoping you will bite. It promises power, control, winning. Once you take the bait, it overtakes, inch by inch. Give it an inch and it takes a mile of who you used to be.
Darkness is furious; it is reckless; it is demanding. It seeks to steal, kill, and destroy others. It seeks to steal, kill, and destroy you.
Darkness tells you it is all-powerful. In reality, darkness is not the boss of your life. You are the sole decision-maker of your body, soul and spirit. Disavow darkness. Take captive every thought to bring it into submission to God, for he is light, and light will overcome your darkness.
Resist darkness, and it will flee, for you, not it, are the owner and master of your life. Demand it go away. Refuse to believe it, focus on it, and yield to it.
Darkness go. Come light, come. Come to dispel darkness. Come and overtake darkness. Darkness wins only if you allow it. But if you choose light; if you search for light; if you welcome light; if you plea for light, He will come.
And your darkness will be overcome.
