March 15, 2020 - Pastor Keith Miller

While I do not hold to an allegorical interpretation of Scripture, there are some passages that can be read in an allegorical manner.

Night - hebrew word for literal night, but also for adversity.

Similarly the word Darkness - literally meaning of night darkness or blindness. Metaphorically darkness speaks of ignorance.

Soldiers describe the night before a battle as the longest night of their lives.

Psychologically there is something about darkness that oppresses us and makes us feel cut off and alone.

Spiritually this same thing happens. When we let night into our souls our spirits begin to feel cut off. We find ourselves walking in fear and being moved by circumstances. If left unchecked we soon begin to speak and act no differently from anyone else in the world. The Bible refers to this as putting your lamp under a basket. We hide the light keeping ourselves and those around us in the dark.
The choice is left up to us - do we focus on darkness or light? It starts with our minds.
So do we have a mind of night, or a mind of day? Why is it important that we renew our mind? What we put into our minds works its way down into our hearts.
First, if you’ve never accepted Jesus as your Saviour, realize you have to start there. Ezekiel describes how God brings back the scattered sheep. Jeremiah describes how God brings back the captives.

Before Christ we were all captives - bound by sin and darkness. When we accept Christ we accept the Light of the world. (Ephesians 5:8)
In order to move into the day though we have to walk in the light. God’s Word is a “Light unto my path”.

To have a mind of day, we need to dwell on God’s Word - there is an answer for every problem you face in scripture

Many are found in Psalm 91 . . .
Other translations have walk in place of live - to make one’s way, progress. Also, to walk at large as proof of ability.
The real question then becomes, how much do you want to walk in the day? Really. You have time for the news, for bad news, for fear, for worry. Do you make as much time for God’s Word?
The night can seem scary. It can seem overwhelming and oppressive. It can appear never ending. But all things have their season.
When we renew our minds and truly walk by faith we can fulfill . . .
Whether you are in the day or night right now Jesus is with you. If you’ll dare to change your focus and make Him the center of your life then the night won’t seem so dark because you’re focusing on the Light. He leaves the choice to you.
