9 But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a consecrated nation, a [special] people for God’s own possession, so that you may proclaim the excellencies [the wonderful deeds and virtues and perfections] of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. 10 Once you were not a people [at all], but now you are God’s people; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. (1 Peter 2:9-10)
I didn’t realize the darkness I was living in, let alone the extent of it. My world was quite literally black.
Mercy? What was mercy? I remember begging this man for it to receive nothing. Just silence—and it was a silence that split my soul in two.
But I also remember the day He called me out of it. It was in August of 2016. I was unpacking a life I had refused to look upon for the last two years. From my feet it rose, this incredible sensation I will never be able to put into words, until in filled me completely. I started crying. I called my husband. And through my sobs I exclaimed, “I am alive!”
I didn’t even know what that meant until some time later and still I struggled to detach myself, to release myself, from the grips of my sin. He never left me. He delivered me from the pit and I will never be the same. His Spirit poured out on me and saved me from myself.
17 “‘In the last days, God says, I will pour out my Spirit on all people. Your sons and daughters will prophesy, your young men will see visions, your old men will dream dreams. (Acts 2:17)
His words filled my mouth; His laws written upon my heart. These are the last days. Jesus is coming soon and my only desire is for all to know of the saving grace that lies only within Him. The prince of darkness seeks to destroy and he knows the truth as well as the times—that is why spiritual warfare has increased in these days. I urge you to fight the good fight, call upon God Almighty, receive His love, mercy and grace. He is alive. He is might to save—and there is no sin too big to seperate you from His love.
