  • Mood:

the mighty God can cause light to arise unto them that sit in darkness

It is in the It Flow 8:20 PM Monday night. I just closed the house up and turned on the central air system. It is 81 degrees in here this evening.

I had a normal afternoon today. I do not know where the time went today. We had take out Mexican for dinner this evening so right now I feel bloated (like a bloated pig floating down the Mississippi River Mississippi State.)

I need fast and pray. It is a blessing to be empty of self and filled with divine life flowing out of the exalted Lord Jesus Christ. I remember these words of the holy apostle Paul in his Epistle to the Colossians, "For in Him dwells all the fullness of the Godhead bodily; and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power" Colossians 2:9,10.

I really have not read anything today except the sermon on evangelical repentance by Rev. John Hill. I found this a blessing from this good news sermon.

"II. The only spring from whence this amazing change doth always proceed: "Surely after that I was turned, I repented." Grace first enters the heart, before it can be discovered in the life and conversation: The God of all Grace first of all draws us; or else we shall never move towards him. John 6:44. "No man can come unto me, except the Father which hath sent me, draw him." We have neither ability nor will to repair to the blessed Jesus; nor do we see ourselves in need of a Savior, till the eyes of our understanding are opened. Great darkness is fallen upon our eyes; a double veil is drawn over our hearts; and who but the mighty God can cause light to arise unto them that sit in darkness, and in the region of the shadow of death? This he claims as his peculiar honor, his sole prerogative; and we who believe will readily acknowledge, "that God who commanded the light to shine out darkness, hath shined into our hearts; to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ," 2 Cor. 4:6. We should never else have known ourselves, our sins, or Christ Jesus the great atonement; we should never else have been led into our own hearts, or the purity and spirituality of the divine law, whereby the offense came to abound, and sin to appear in its proper light and colors, as exceeding sinful, Romans 7:9,13. Converted we may be through grace, but convert ourselves we cannot, for the way of man is not in himself, Jer. 10:23. . ." Rev. John Hill

I have no plans for the night ahead of me. I am not in the mood to do anything this evening. It has been a long day. I will close to rest.
