“I have a message from God in my heart concerning the sinfulness of the wicked: There is no fear of God before their eyes. In their own eyes they flatter themselves too much to detect or hate their sin.”
Psalm 36:1-2 NIV
Years ago a friend stopped by my home and asked why I was sitting in the dark. I’d been reading as the sun was setting and didn’t realize I when the room had grown dark. When a person lives in darkness they can’t differentiate the sin within themselves because they’ve acclimated to their surroundings. “ In Your light we see light”(Ps 36:9). Don’t let the eyes of your heart become so acclimated to the evil in the world, and there is great pressure to do as such, that you no longer see it for what it is—sin. The more time you spend in the light through the reading of God’s Word, meditating on it, praying and walking in Spirit, the more your own sin and that around you will be exposed.
