13 For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure. 14 Do all things without murmurings and disputings: 15 That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world – Philippians 2:13-15

If you observe the trend around the world today, it’s as though man has finally descended into the deepest depth of corruption, moral decadence and wickedness. Amidst all these, the Bible assures us of victory for we’re not subject to the circumstances of this world; we’re born of the Spirit of God.

We need to learn to think smartly and wisely because of the day we’re living in. we need to realize that the corruption, insincerity or wickedness around us isn’t any problem for us; we must see it as our opportunity. “Opportunity for what?” you might want to ask. They are your opportunity to show froth the glory of your heavenly Father. If there was no Goliath, there would have been no David. The Word of God would always prevail; it would triumph in any system of government. So, never think the government policies or unfavorable economic conditions are designed to destroy you. If you live by the Word of God, there is no government policy or economic system on earth that can beat you.

Jesus described the people of His day as serpent and a generation of vipers (Matthew 23:33). Surely, these people must have been very decadent because you don’t call good people serpents. They even conspired to kill Him. It sounds like what’s happening today, doesn’t it?

You have to realize that the darker the night, the more brightly your light shines. Don’t become like them, or talk like them and don’t succumb to their way of doing business. The more the evil and the corruption, the brighter your light shines. Jesus said you are the salt of the earth and again He said, “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid” (Matthew 5:14).

Dear Father, I thank you for making me a city that’s set upon a hill and for causing my light to shine in such a way that my world is illuminate with righteousness and the knowledge of your Word. I ask that you cause your light to shine more and more through me to chase away every work of darkness in my sphere of contact, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
