“The exchange of dark for light” is Jesus’ teaching here. I like the word “exchange”. I can exchange an item that I bought from a store for a new item or a new size or return a faulty item. Why not exchange at God’s Customer Service Counter the thoughts that do not fit me. Those thoughts are too snug, keep me limited, allow no freedom or room to breathe, why not exchange them for a lighter model?
I have to enter into communion with the Holy Spirit to make this exchange. It is the holy communication that He and I share that allows the exchange of darks thoughts for those of joy.
As Jesus indicates here, “The quiet light in which the Holy Spirit dwells within you is merely perfect openness in which nothing is hidden and therefore nothing is fearful.” As I exchange those hidden, dark attack thoughts, and He shines His Light upon them I can see the uselessness of hiding in the first place. The relief comes by crawling out of the cave of pain I have created. I may squint and cover my eyes, yet still afraid of the light, but once out into the light I can feel the strength of warm protection always.
Today Holy Spirit, I trust in You and Your communication with me. I know Your Message is always one of Love and I need not fear. I open my doors to you, please come in and bring Your Light.
