For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, against the powers, against the world’s rulers of the darkness of this age, and against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Back in 1986, Tom Bodett, spokesman for the Motel 6 chain of hotels, made famous the advertising slogan, “We’ll leave the light on for you.” The message was there was never a bad time to check into a Motel 6. The light would always be on to help you find your way.
The same can be said for God. The light of His truth and love are always on, shedding light on His unbroken promises, lighting the path that is His will for our life, and revealing the blessings and hope of heaven.
This is in stark contrast to Satan’s ploys to lure us into the evils of sin. He purposefully keeps the lights on dim, so to speak, masking the ugliness of sin with just enough light to lure us in.
Don’t let this happen to you. Keep your eyes on the Light of life, which is Jesus. God keeps this Light shining 24/7, because like Motel 6 (and even better), there’s never a bad time to come to Him.
Thank You for the light of Jesus.
Give me the wisdom and courage to follow Him faithfully.
In Jesus’ Name, I pray, Amen.
