Their minds are full of darkness; they wandered far from the life God gives because they have closed their minds and hardened their hearts against him.
It is a dangerous place to be for your mind to be full of darkness because when your mind is full of darkness it leads you down the valley of death. Our heart becomes hardened when we choose to ignore that inner feeling inside which nudges us to do or say something. When this feeling is ignored too many times the heart becomes insensitive to conviction and it becomes hardened.
Sometimes we allow ourselves to become unnecessarily numb to the voice of God. It’s extremely important to realize the impact of our actions or inactions. It is very important that we check ourselves on a daily basis to make sure that we not straying from God. We must see to it that we’re not allowing sin to have control over us. Let us not allow our hearts to be hardened before God but rather let us open our hearts to God and allow His glorious light to shine through us.
Lastly, the word of God produces lights in us. It is only the lights in Him that can eradicate the darkness. Therefore we must bask in the light of God and His word. We must revel in Him and allow our hearts and our minds to be transformed by the lights of His word. Do not be fooled lights are He and it is only through Him and in Him that we will receive light.
