Carry the Light

carry the light - my pic

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” Matthew 5:16

Help me to carry Your light with me throughout
this day. Let Your brilliance and the radiance of
all you are permeate my very being. In my daily
conversation, let all of who You are, which has
been poured into my life, be a witness with a holy
outflow.

Let my life speak for You. Not just in words, for
man hears much of that these days. But let the
steps I take throughout this day, be filled with the
very love, power, Spirit, and light You have shown
me – may I express it all with the fulness of heart
toward others in the paths I travel toward our
eternal destiny.

The best of me is the Christ in me, and I want to
let Him shine in my life.

“We Are Made New!”

New. What a great word! What was, is now
gone. The old is done away with and put in the
past. It doesn’t have a place in the here and
now. For now, “all things are become new.”

Life is now seen with different eyes; with a
different vision. Because Christ has changed
us from what we used to be, now we see us
as He sees us – NEW! We have been
transformed. We have been remade. Our
lives have been restored. And now, our walk is
made great. Bought with a price and made
whole through and through. Saved creatures
in Jesus Christ, who are now totally NEW!

The Multitude of His Mercies

The ancient children of Israel stand as a lesson
for many things in life. One of the greatest
lessons we can glean from then is that the mercy
of God is real. There are times when they are
seen as shunning God and His ways to go after
other things and people that drew them away
from His will. But God, being in covenant with
them, continued to not only show mercy but
“the multitude of his mercies.”

They are not the only ones. In our own lives, we
thank God for the multitudes of His mercies He
has shown us. Our thoughts, actions, and words
have not always been aligned to His will and
purpose for our lives. But in His mercies, He has
delivered us, loved on us, and restored us to
right fellowship through our Savior, the Lord Jesus
Christ. Not just once, but many times, every one
of us can say it is because of the multitude of His
mercies that we are here.

“WAIT ON THE LORD!”

 

At the beginning of the New Year, a lot of
resolutions are made. As time goes by,
many of those aspirations to do better or
reach a certain goal fall by the wayside.
As hard as it is sometimes, things take a
good dose of patience, trying again,
and waiting.

Wherever your heart is leading you this
year, wait on God’s timing. He will never fail
you. Things may not always happen exactly
the way we planned or in our timing,
nonetheless, hold on to God’s unchanging
hand and be of good courage.

“BELIEVE WHAT GOD SAYS. ALL WILL COME TO PASS!”

 

In the sixty-six books that make up the Bible,
there is one truth that stands forever: God’s
Word can always be trusted. God’s Word will
never fail to accomplish what it was purposed to
do. God’s Word will always be the absolute final
truth to every question in our life that needs an
answer. His word will fulfill every promise
spoken to His people.

Hold on, dear friends, to the promises of God
for they will all surely come to pass. The Bible
says, “So shall my word be that goeth forth out of
my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it
shall accomplish that which I please, and it
shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it,”
(Is. 55:11). Believe what God says.
All will come to pass.

“THERE WILL BE A TIME WHEN JOY CANNOT BE TAKEN AWAY!”

 

Jesus gave these words of encouragement to
His disciples before His death. He recognized
that what they would feel in the present
circumstance of His crucifixion would cause
great sorrow. But, when they see Him again,
that joy would be permanent and no one will be
able to strip them of it.

Present circumstances are sometimes sorrowful
but there is coming a day when we will
experience uninterrupted joy because we will
see Jesus face to face. Everything we are
going through now cannot compare to that time
of rejoicing “with joy unspeakable and full of
glory,” (1 Peter 1:8).

 

“Troubles Won’t Last Always. Don’t Give Up!”

We don’t know why we often seem to be in a
holding pattern but we can be assured
that during the process, God is working
out His purpose in the midst of it all. In the end,
whatever He designed for that appointed
time, place, etc will take its rightful place in the
grand scheme of things.

Troubles won’t last always. There will come a
shift of seasons. The wintry blows that may tear
at the heart of life will eventually give way to
the blossoming of something new and better on
the horizon. The holding pattern will break and
the days of crying will give way to rejoicing.
The times of mourning must move that we
may dance. Some seasons may be harder than
others to endure, but trust God’s perfect timing
through it all and don’t give up (Gal. 6:9).

“GOD CARRIES HIS PEOPLE!”

 

Times of wilderness wandering can be hard,
and at times quite dismal. There is dryness in the
wilderness. It’s a place where one travels
where no fruit seems to grow and everything
around us seems sparse and without life.

Look up, dear child of God, because even in
these times, God is carrying the heart that
trusts in Him through their wilderness traveling.
In times of barrenness, when we may not see
or understand the whole picture, God is never
far from His children. As a man carries his
child to safety, so too does God for those
who hold on to His will and His way, and He
will see them safely to the other side of any
desert that may be before us.

“STRENGTH IN THE TIME OF NEED!”

 

No matter who you are in life there will be a
time when you need help outside of yourself.
When all your inner capacities are drained and
strained and we feel like we can’t press
through anymore, we need Him to refill and
strengthen us in this journey.

The good news is God is here for His people
to give them what they need to make it
through even the hardest times of life. Where
we lack, He will supply. Where we come up
short, He can meet us there and provide the
means to keep us, deliver us, and set us free.

Turn to Him today. “The LORD will give strength
unto his people; the LORD will bless his
people with peace.” Psalm 29:11.

“TRUE KNOWLEDGE STARTS WITH TRULY REVERENCING GOD!”

“TRUE KNOWLEDGE STARTS WITH TRULY REVERENCING GOD!” Lord, help us to walk today in the paths that are pleasing to You.

There is a beginning to everything, except
God who is everlasting (Ps. 90:2).
There is a beginning of days, years, life,
creation, and so on. There is also a
beginning of knowledge. This beginning starts
with reverencing God. It starts with being
concerned about one’s life aligning
to His will and desires for each one of us.

To have true knowledge, one must ask, “Is this
what God would have me to do? Are the
choices I am making pleasing to His eyes?”
If the answer is not an affirmative yes through
and through, then today is the day to start
realigning the path one walks that our lives
are established in the fear of the LORD.
