“Ye are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven” – Matthew 5:14-16
LIGHT FOR NOW: With Jesus, you can fulfill destiny; don’t glorify darkness and problems.
Hills are vantage points for case of observation of anything located downward. Surprisingly, anything located at hilltops are readily seen by all; even by people at the base of the hill. Therefore, hills are peculiar platforms for easiest observation. I declare upon your life, “You cannot be hidden any longer. Just as a city set on a hill, people far and near will see your light and come to you in Jesus name”. The important of light cannot be over-emphasized. Wherever there is light, darkness cannot thrive. You are much more than what you think about yourself. Wherever there is light, there is attraction. I pray for you, whatever has been preventing you from shining; right now it is giving way to light. Stop looking down on yourself, for Jesus is the one working on you. Allow Jesus to shine in your life. Let the thought of Jesus take pre-eminence in your daily life. Constantly reflect on the love of Jesus and the price He paid for you at the cross of calvary. Think about the redemptive power of the blood He shed. Be absorbed by the initiative he took in loving you.
You are not just the light of the church; but the light of the world. This is because your ministry has to be extended far beyond the church. You will shine wherever you find yourself. Jesus speaking in John 8:12 says “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life”. As long as you remain in Christ Jesus, your light will keep radiating. You will keep on shining. Your light will never go dim. You will never fail! You will never be ashamed or confused in life. With Jesus, you can fulfill destiny. Don’t glorify darkness. Never magnify your problems. But on the contrary, glorify Jesus. Let your mind and heart be affixed on Him. As you praise, worship and glorify Jesus and reflect on what He says about you, the light of life will shine on your path. Glory!
INSTRUCTION: Switch on the light of life by focusing your mind on Jesus.
CONFESSION: Lord, thank you for making me the light of the world, in Jesus Name, Amen.
QUOTE: A man with Christ constantly flies with high beam light.
