Psalm 36:9 “For with you is the fountain of life; in your light we see light.” (NIV)
God’s light has a source, and the source is God! Therefore, to engage The Source, the first thing we need to do is to Practice His presence. The second thing that we need to do is to Be Engaged In His Word. Psalm 119:105 “Your word is a lamp to guide my feet and a light for my path.” You must be engaged in God’s Word. This is why you cannot afford to forsake the fellowshipping together of the brethren, it is totally indispensable. You need to engage. Psalm 119:130 “The teaching of your word gives light…” (emphasis added). The King James Version reads, “The entrance of thy words giveth light…” (emphasis added). The New International Version reads, “The unfolding of your words gives light…” (emphasis added). When the Word of God is taught, it gives light. The other sources of light are the mouth of the wise – when wise people open their mouth, light comes out. Books give light; Daniel said, ‘I understood by books…’.
The first thing is that light has a source. The second thing from the physical properties of light, and we also see in scriptures directly linked, is that light is source sufficient. Unlike other forms of radiation, physical radiations that have epicenters must go through materials. Acoustic radiations like sound, sound cannot travel without the room filled with particles. But light can travel in a vacuum, it does not need other materials. Light is source sufficient. So, if you are connected to The Source, even if you are in a vacuum, you will shine. If you are connected to The Source, even if you are in a desert, The Source will sustain you.
The third thing from the physical properties of light is that there is both visible and invisible light. In fact, the electromagnetic radiation, the band that is visible to the human eye that goes from violet to red, when you split up is so small. On top of red, there is the infra-red, it is also a form of light, used in infra-red remote controls. There is ultraviolet, UV rays used in different ways. Then there are x-rays, gamma rays, microwave. The microwave is a form of light that you cannot see but it cooks the food. It is a whole band, but the part that is visible to us is red to violet. It means that there is more to light than meets the eye. There are aspects of the Word that God can open your light to that you can begin to see with infra-red. You can have night vision spiritually. There is a whole lot to this, it is like gushing water.
What are the implications? There are five implications. The first is Light Brings Vision. Light makes vision possible. You can have your eyes working perfectly, be in a totally dark room and you will not see anything. Nothing is wrong with your eyes, but your light has come today in the Name of Jesus. You will begin to see as you ought to see in the Mighty Name of Jesus.
Prayer: Father, You light a lamp for me, please light up my darkness, in Jesus Mighty Name. Amen! (Psalm 18:28)
