who commanded the light to shine out of darkness,
hath shined in our hearts,
to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
2 Corinthians 4:6
God’s light reveals all and brings all into vision. The realization of God’s plan for His children is a life altering awareness that those of faith embrace.
I heard a preacher say once, “whatever you do alone be keenly aware that God sees and is taking notes. So, don’t do anything alone that you wouldn’t want others to see, most important and especially God.”
Darkness abounds in this tired and angry world and has been so since the beginning of time. The same old scenario, goodness versus evil. Light versus darkness. Love versus hate.
It is a time old story, however–it’s our individual perspective on faith and God’s love that either gets us through successfully, or as an abysmal failure.
God is light. God is love. God is patience. God is compassion. God is merciful.
No matter how dark our surroundings…there is always a light in the crevices of our mind…so open your mind and let the light shine forth.
We’re never alone.
He’ll never leave us nor forsake us.
He goes before us in spiritual battle.
He stands with us as our protective shield and buckler.
He holds us up with His right hand of righteousness.
He guides our paths.
He hears our prayers.
He knows our heart.
He is our Sovereign and Almighty Father of lights and love.
Trust Him and honor Him and obey Him in all things. When you do…a “light” will spring to life in your body, heart and soul.
The illumination will bathe you in His perfect peace and His strength will guide you through the turmoil and keep you anchored in any storm.
Conversely, He is there with you in quiet and peaceful times as well.
“Father of light and love, thank You for Your hands of mercy, for Your promises in Your Word, thank You for the gifts You bestow upon Your children since the beginning of time, thank You for all that You are, and all that You do, Father, shine Your light, guide, lead, direct, heal in Jesus’ name, Amen.”
Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.
12 No one has seen God at any time. If we love one another, God abides in us, and His love has been perfected in us. 13 By this we know that we abide in Him, and He in us, because He has given us of His Spirit. 14 And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent the Son as Savior of the world. 15 Whoever confesses that Jesus is the Son of God, God abides in him, and he in God. 16 And we have known and believed the love that God has for us. God is love, and he who abides in love abides in God, and God in him.
1 John 4:7-21
God’s Light and Love
7 But if we walk in the light as He is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanses us from all sin.
