The Invisible World

My youngest daughter woke up one morning, not too long ago, and came downstairs to sit with me on our sofa.  With big sleepy brown eyes, she said to me, "Mommy, God is bright and beautiful." 

"Yes," I agreed, wondering what prompted her comment.

She went on to tell me that she had a dream that God came to her and pointed to Evil and said, "Chase it, before it chases you and you have Fear." 

I sat there thinking for a moment.  How simply and profoundly put.  "Wow, honey," I encouraged her,  "That is quite a dream." 

Then, she looked at me and with a quick change of subject asked, "What's for breakfast?"

We went on with our morning, but her comment lingered in my mind all day.   It reminded me that there is spiritual activity always going on.  Just as real as our natural world is, so is the spiritual world.  We see all kinds of spiritual activity going on throughout the Bible.  From the Old Testament to the New Testament, God has made it clear that there is an invisible world around us -- filled with Good and Evil, as well.  Whether we believe it or not, it still exists and it is still alive and active.

The important thing to remember, though, is that we do not have to be afraid when we are in the Light.  Love wins every battle.  In fact, not only can we live without fear, but we can live as Overcomers in the Light.  We can look Fear and Evil in the eye and say, "You have no place here. Out!"
