His Glory

Genesis 50:20 “You intended to harm me, but God intended it all for good. He brought me to this position so I could save the lives of many people.”

We have looked at three of the five things that we need to know, three of the five things that will illuminate our lives. Three of the five things that will solidify our lives and will make us unshakable, unmovable. Three of the five things that will make us rooted and planted even as God wants us to be.

Shine Bright

Exodus 20:6 “But I lavish unfailing love for a thousand generations on those who love me and obey my commands.”

So far, we have looked at three out of the four things you need to pay attention to as your light begins to shine. The first is It Is Not About You. Your light shining is not about you. Matt. 5:14: “You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.” Read the rest of this entry

Your Shine

Isaiah 60:1-2 “Arise, Jerusalem! Let your light shine for all to see. For the glory of the Lord rises to shine on you. Darkness as black as night covers all the nations of the earth, but the glory of the Lord rises and appears over you.”

As your light begins to shine, the first thing you need to know is that It Is Not About You. Matthew 5:14You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden.” God clearly defines the purpose for your light, your shine in this scripture. Read the rest of this entry

Understand This

Isaiah 40:13-14 “Who is able to advise the Spirit of the Lord? Who knows enough to give him advice or teach him? Has the Lord ever needed anyone’s advice? Does he need instruction about what is good? Did someone teach him what is right or show him the path of justice?

Easter is all about getting up. You may have been down because of perhaps happenings in the world today, or maybe even your personal issues now compounded by world events. But Easter is about getting up. You may be emotionally down, or maybe spiritually down, or maybe even physically down. Read the rest of this entry

When Light Flows, VI

Matt.5:16 “In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven.” (NRSV, emphasis added).

Matt.6:1-4 Watch out! Don’t do your good deeds publicly, to be admired by others, for you will lose the reward from your Father in heaven. When you give to someone in need, don’t do as the hypocrites do—blowing trumpets in the synagogues and streets to call attention to their acts of charity! I tell you the truth, they have received all the reward they will ever get. But when you give to someone in need, don’t let your left hand know what your right hand is doing. Give your gifts in private, and your Father, who sees everything, will reward you.” Read the rest of this entry

When Light Flows, V

Matt.7:24-25 “Everyone who hears my teaching and applies it to his life can be compared to a wise man who built his house on an unshakable foundation. When the rains fell and the flood came, with fierce winds beating upon his house, it stood firm because of its strong foundation.” (TPT)

You need to take a stand before your light can shine. You need to take a stand before your light can flow. However, taking a stand is not always convenient but you have to take a stand. Note however that, taking a stand must be on Christ and Christ alone. Read the rest of this entry

When Light Flows, IV

Matt.5:15 “Similarly it would be silly to light a lamp and then hide it under a bowl. When someone lights a lamp, she puts it on a table or a desk or a chair, and the light illumines the entire house.” (Voice)

My light flows when I call the things that be not as though they were. Secondly, my light flows when I engage in community. Thirdly, my light flows When I Dare To Take A Stand. Matt. 5:15No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house.Read the rest of this entry

When Light Flows, III

Prov. 27:17 “Iron sharpens iron; so a man sharpens the countenance of his friend [to show rage or worthy purpose].” (AMPC)

My light flows and shines when I call things that be not as though they were and my light flows when I am engaged in community. There are things that you want to get, there are levels of light and revelation that you need for life that will only come when you do life with other Christians. Read the rest of this entry

When Light Flows, II

Ps.43:3 “Send out your light and your truth; let them guide me. Let them lead me to your holy mountain, to the place where you live.”

When I Call Things That Be Not As Though They Were, my light flows. Guess what? The things you have in your life now, are most likely things you have spoken before, they are just now catching up with you for good or for bad. You have the power to create your destiny. Read the rest of this entry

When Light Flows, I

Isa.59:21 “This is My covenant promise to them: My Spirit, which rests on and moves in you, and My words, which I have placed within you, will continue to be spoken among you and move you to action. And not only you, but so it will be for your children and their children too… (Voice)

God’s Word to us now is let your light shine, your own light shine. I know that by now you are asking, how? Like we said previously, when Jesus wants to answer the ‘how’ question, many times He gives us the ‘when’ answer. When this happens then you will understand this. Read the rest of this entry
