Daily Bible Reflections - May 22, 2013

THE FORCE VS. THE DARK SIDE
 
“There is no one who performs a mighty deed in my name who can at the same time speak ill of me.”– Mark 9:39
 
Nothing disempowers a person more than being in the “dark.” When mountains of problems seem immovable or when we are reduced to the status of victims, it’s so easy to feel hopeless.
       Many things can cause us to be banished to a psycho-spiritual dungeon. Like when we let ourselves get stuck in our status quo and become imprisoned in our comfort zones. When the scarcity mentality traps us into thinking we are forever poor and limited. When we are afraid or lazy to start a worthwhile endeavor, or finish it haphazardly and half-heartedly.
       When we dwell in this kind of darkness, we are living on the “dark side” of life.
       My dear friends, there is hope. And it’s by God’s grace that you have this hope to overcome the dark side. I want to call that hope that empowers and sets free as “the Force.” Because 1 John 4:4 declares, “The One that is within you is more powerful than the one who is in the world!”
       The Force is the power of God within you! The Force is the Holy Spirit at work in you and within you! Claim your Force and overcome the dark side! Obet Cabrillas (kpreacherobet@gmail.com)
 
Reflection: He can do exceedingly and abundantly above all that we could ever ask or imagine according to the power that is at work in us. (Ephesians 3:20)
 
Lord, thank You for the power You’ve bestowed upon us as Christians. Set us free from the bondages that disempower us. Amen.
 
St. Rita of Cascia, pray for us.
