Would you light a lamp and keep it under a table? When Dumsor hits you would you keep the lantern under the table still? Easter was an exciting time for me. I learnt about how I and probably you too enjoy being dark lights.
There are many people with wonderful relationships with God. They are tongues speaking Christians who receive visions and divine revelations on life from God. There are people who when you mention a Bible verse the kind of divine insight they can share would make you marvel?
As it is in the scriptures we have a form of godliness but deny its power. We like to look cool and not have people ask us questions about our religious choices and like to look normal A Lot!
Daniel purposed in his heart not to defile himself with the food sacrificed to the idols. Meschach ,Shadrach and Abednego refused to bow to a god even when threatened with death.
It is not because our generation is a harder one than theirs ,but we have not set in stone our do’s and don’ts and are not ready to fight for what we believe.
Many people known the Bible and what it says yet woven fewer are ready to do what it says let alone fight for its truth.
We can shine by
1. Letting the word dwell richly in your heart.
They word have I hid in my heart that I may not sin against you.David knew the importance of having the word in your heart. When u keep something in your heart, you cherish and jealousy watch over it. Eph 1:18 I pray that your hearts be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called –his holy people who are his rich glorious inheritance.
LIGHT IS AN EMMISION OF ABSORPTION ..whatever colors we see it is because the material has absorbed its spectrum and is emitting what it already has.
When we spend time in the word of God we flood our hearts and our minds with light. We allow the Spirit of God to come and fill us and transform us. We are able to then show that which has been given to us to the world.
Perhaps you have been reading your Bible for a while but you don’t feel like much change is happening, don’t stop. His ways are not our ways neither are His thoughts our thoughts, keep reading, keep praying keep doing whatever you are doing to get closer to God and to shine .
It may take a while, you may stumble but keep moving till you are convicted by the Holy Spirit and live according to the word of God.DON’T READ THE WORD AND LIVE ACCORDING TO YOUR DESIRES, THERE IS A STRUGGLE BUT WE OVERCAME HIM BY THE BLOOD AND THE WORD OF OUR TESTIMONIES
