Be The Light!

3D7E4CFA-342F-48D6-BEA2-FB54A82A3F25“No one after lighting a lamp covers it with a jar or puts it under a bed, but puts it on a stand, so that those who enter may see the light.” [Luke 8:16]

Light is the radiance or illumination from a particular source. In the Bible, light symbolizes righteousness. If light is a metaphor for living an upright life, then darkness signifies an evil and destructive life. God Himself is light. He is absolutely Holy and there is no hint of injustice in Him. Those who walk in darkness live and act against God. There is no truth in their life’s walk. Therefore, God holds no heavenly fellowship or intimacy with these unholy souls.

People who live near God and walk in His brilliant light are partakers of His divine energy, and they experience glimpses of His power and His love in their daily walk. They illuminate His light to the world around them.

God’s nature is pure and perfect and it should be represented as such to the dark world. 

Unfortunately, sometimes we cling to our old ways for dear life, instead of embracing the reality who we belong to, the God of all creation. When we are determined to get our own way and insist on our agenda, we actually block God out of our consciousness. Rather than single-mindedly following some selfish goal, we must make a quick turn to God and ask Him to shine His light on our mission, so we can see clearly from His perspective. Cling to God, not to His favors. All it takes is a quick prayer, a simple conversation with our Creator. It must be done with faith [an open mind and heart]. As you began to immerse yourself in His light and glory, asking for His will to be done in your life, the creator of Heaven and earth will gladly comply.

God wants you to be a lamp on a hilltop that shines His light over your city. Imagine what an honorable life it would be to reflect His light.

“You are the light of the world. A city on a hill cannot be hidden.”[Matthew 5:14]

Let God Mend the Broken Pieces!

If you’re desperately waiting for God to tell you what to do, continue to trust and expectantly wait for His guidance. He may use a situation or a someone who is close to you to speak to you.

In the past, I would foolishly try to hold on and fix the things that were broken and harmful to me emotionally and physically.   I didn’t know that the broken things can become blessed things, until God spoke to me through an angel friend’s post (@_delight_in_him). I learned an important life lesson from this experience; I realized I must let God do the mending.

Revelation 21:5

He who was seated on the throne said, “Be still, I am making everything new!”

Sometimes, we attempt to fix things by our own efforts, unaware that we may be standing in God’s way. He wants us to move aside, and allow Him to do His work.  As the famous quote says, ”Let go… and let God…” That’s what we should do.

If there are relationships or things that are not meant to be in your life, move away from them. God knows who and what belongs in your life and they don’t. Trust and let go.  Whoever and whatever is intended to be there, will still be there.

The Bible says:

When you’ve done everything you can do, that’s when God will step in and do what you can’t do.

[2 Corinthians 12:10]

Blessed are all who take refuge in God. [Psalm 2]

And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. [Romans 8:28]
