The phrase “genuine imitation” can also apply to the spiritual lights that draw our attention.
2 Corinthians 11:14 says, "And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light." He’s an imitation light that appears to be genuine. He uses his fakery to confuse us and to lead us astray.
Praise God, there is a Genuine Light that exposes the imitation and outshines it. We might be momentarily confused, but “While I am in the world, I am the light of the world" (John 9:5 ) .
Jesus overpowers Satan until he casts but a weak glow.
Now that Jesus is at the right hand of the Father, we’ve been filled with the light of the Holy Spirit. We might be assaulted by confusion, doubt, or temptation, but be confident.
The light of the Spirit never dims, it forever shines brightly to guide us and to assure us of His presence.
Rest in the Light. Be confident in its radiance.
Has Satan tried to distract you with his imitation light?
How did the Holy Spirit’s light reveal Satan’s darkness and guide you back to Him?
