Darkness. The absence of light. Where there is light, there cannot be darkness. Darkness cannot exist without the light for darkness is an empty void of nothingness. In the beginning, it was dark, the entire universe...then there was light. The absence of light allows for things to be not seen, to remain hidden. Darkness brings fear and trepidation because in it, without light, lies the opportunity for evil or harm, and, too, there lies the unknown. Darkness cannot be known or even comprehended without knowing, first, what light is. Therefore, what is light?
This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But who ever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God. John 3:19-21
You are the lamp, O Lord; the Lord turns my darkness into light. 2 Samuel 22:29
The Lord is my light and my salvation- whom shall I fear? Psalm 27:1
In order for there to be light, there must be power and energy. The greatest power in the universe is God. The most dominant energy in the universe is God. Wherever there is light, there is God. God is light.
Scientists have learned that beyond the atom, beyond the quark and all the other subatomic particles that make up matter, is the photon. A photon is a basic particle of the universe, thereby not being able to be created or destroyed. A photon also has no mass nor does it have a positive or negative charge, and, it will not decay in empty space.
This is the science of God. It fascinates me to know that science has revealed an energy that cannot be created or destroyed. An energy, that without it, nothing would exist. And an energy that will never change over time.
The smallest organized structure of the human body is the cell. Within each cell are a multitude of components. These components are made of molecules which are made of atoms. Within the atom are subatomic particles, which you now know, are derived from photons. Therefore, in our truest essence and form, we are made of light. Perfect light.
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1
As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the Lord is flawless. 2 Samuel 22:31
He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of men. John 1:2-4
Our world can be filled with darkness, which at times, can seem to consume us and control us. Darkness is nothing more than the absence of God in our life. Bring Jesus into every aspect of your life and the darkness will disappear. It's not that it might disappear, or has a chance to disappear...it will because where there is light there cannot be darkness. Praise God for his goodness and light!
