When we embrace (acknowledge) the dark areas within us; and then, take up our cross of the flesh and follow Him, it will literally move us into being more holy, as He is holy. Isaiah 45:3 tells us that HE will give us the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, so we may know the LORD – the God of Israel. Let’s embrace His treasures that are hidden in our darkness!
“I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I, the LORD, Who call you by your name, Am the God of Israel” (Isaiah 45:3).
“He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death, and broke their chains in pieces” (Psalm 107:14).
“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me” (Matthew 16:24).
