O LORD, you are my lamp. The LORD lights up my darkness [NLT] 2 Samuel 22:29
Since God has made you into a light, you no longer have any links with Darkness. Everything that brought unimaginable sadness, shame and scandal, humiliation, distress, broken heart, broken promises, disappointments, abandonment, rejection, trials of many kinds, was Darkness. But thank God for God, Our bright and Morning Star, came in and took away everything that reflected darkness in our lives and transformed us all into lights. Because in truth, nothing, not even darkness can ever stand in the brightness of His light, His glory. So don’t waste a moment longer of your life on those dark moments that used to throng your life, and focus on the fact that you are now reflecting the brilliance and brightness of God’s glory, our Lord Jesus Christ, and for that reason, no form of darkness can ever be able to withstand you all the days of your life!
“You are the light of the world–like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. [NLT] Matthew 5:14
It’s time you got up from the bottom where you’ve been sitting on, and started living the life you were created to live. You were created for greatness, to impact lives, to make a change in the world you’re living in, to meet a need, to show love and be loved. But you’re wondering, look at me, how am I expected to do this? Don’t you know that because you are a carrier of the glory of the King of kings, Creator of the entire universe, Lord GOD, which has made you a light, because of God’s glory that is in you, you will succeed? Being downtrodden and left is a sorry state, is not your lot. It’s time you understood that, and took your rightful place in your world, in the society. And because you’ve been created for greatness, your light will never be hidden nor will it ever dim all the days of your life. In Jesus name. Amen. You are not insignificant. You are not a nobody. You are much more than you will ever realise. Welcome to the Month of December, and may your light shine, even more brightly this month in Jesus name. Amen.
But the path of righteous people is like the light of dawn that becomes brighter and brighter until it reaches midday. [GWT] Proverbs 4:18
You are a shining light because of Jesus Christ in you. And because you as a light can never ever fade, you can only glow brighter and brighter, never ever becoming dim, irrespective of what may be thrown at you! No struggle, past mistakes, failure, missed opportunities; disappointments or scandal can ever cause your light to fade away. It is impossible. Keep this at the forefront of your mind. You were born to shine, so don’t let any circumstance tell you otherwise. And because the glory of God is in you, it’s time you took your place as a shining beacon that can never be covered in Jesus name. Amen.
There I will go to the altar of God, to God–the source of all my joy. I will praise you with my harp, O God, my God! [NLT] Psalm 43:4
He has done it before. He will do it again. If you were to look back to where He brought you from, see how far He’s brought you, and how at one point, previously, when you thought you were never ever going to make it, but you did. You will see that these struggles today are of little consequences to God. Why? Because He is more than able to help you through them, to a place where you never thought, even in your wildest dreams that you will ever get to. Go to Him again today and Thank Him. He is faithful, He is awesome, He is wonderful, He’s been a never ending source of Joy to me, and for that Lord I am truly grateful. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Lord Jesus, for all you’ve done for me. My praise Lord will forever and ever be before you, because you have made me glad and have put the joy of Lord in my life. He will do it also for you. Only believe and be thankful.
Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again–rejoice! [NLT] Philippians 4:4
Even in the midst of that struggle, let your heart be full of joy. You may not have much to be glad about, but that single action of “making a decision to be joyful regardless of what may be happening” gives you a better perspective on things. Why? Because you have made a choice to always be glad, you will always see the positive aspect of every negative situation. So maybe Christmas is coming and maybe it’s a season that fills you with so much trepidation, rejoice and be glad. Maybe it’s a lonely time, or simply you don’t have enough to make it as cheerful as you would like it to be, rejoice and be glad. Don’t weary yourself unnecessarily. The Lord Jesus always has a way of making everything beautiful, and everything will work out marvellously in your life in Jesus name. Amen. And so I say it again. Rejoice.
Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you your heart’s desires. [NLT] Psalm 37:4
You don’t need to fret because of the rumours you’re hearing. Trust God, trust the Father, His Son Jesus and His Spirit. Believe in His power, goodness, faithfulness, wisdom, love, grace, mercy, works of creation, people, redemption, WORD, Gospel – the truths and ordinances of it and meditate upon it. And because you have trusted Him by going after the things that pleases Him, He will give you the desires of your heart – according to His will, and given to you not just for you, but also for the good of His people. He will open the flood gates of heaven, if and only if you trust and believe in Him.
“And a person with a changed heart seeks praise from God, not from people”. [NLT] Romans 2:29b
You don’t have to be Jewish, or “White” in order to have Faith in Jehovah (God of Isreal). Having Faith in God is not a “White man’s religion” as many have called it. Yahweh is no respecter of persons. All nations/tribes/people/race/colour are all equally precious to Him; and He has granted and will continue to grant each and every one discoveries/revelations of Himself (as He has always been) that will be sufficient for their salvation. So don’t let people fool you into thinking that because of who you are, or where you’re from, or the colour of your skin disqualifies/negates you from putting your faith in Him. The Words of God is an infinite/limitless blessing to all that beholds it, and is life to all that finds it. Choose life, choose Elohim. Jesus will undoubtedly make you what His Words says you will be, and give you a heart that seeks only to praise Him. And with that heart He will make you the praise of all men.
