Good Day! Today I am writing to tell you about Light. This could be a possible series of articles; 2; 3; 4, who knows maybe just this one, maybe I’ll come back to it later on in life, maybe not. Only time will tell. I’ll do my best to include all the ideas God has placed in me, if not then I’ll just keep adding things and chipping away, who knows, I might make a sculpture if I chip enough away.
How Great is God’s power? I mean He created the world in 6 days, 7 if you include the day of rest. But a week! One week! I always read the first chapter of Genesis and am astounded every time when I read God created the world in 7 days!
In the space of a week he created Earth, Light, Land, Water, Sky, Moon, Sun, Night, Day, Birds, Men, Turtles, Dolphins, Plants, Food (And Food is Food!) and everything else! He created all that in such a short time. In 7 days the most interesting thing I do is Biting both ends off a KitKat Chunky, getting some warm milk and using the KitKat as a straw. Yes, I am cool.
God created the world and gave it to us as a gift. He made the Earth, then made Light:
‘And God said “Let there be Light.” And there was light. God saw that the light was good and he separated light from darkness.’ – Genesis 1:3-4
Light is awesome, it represents all good things in God, so walking in The Light would be walking in all good things of the Lord.
Before the light was made, the earth was made. First his kingdom, then his light. His kingdom is Earth because we are his people, his loyal servants, disciples who live in his kingdom. We worship him from and Earthly Kingdom, and he is in his Spiritual Kingdom. First we should look to God’s Kingdom (Matthew 6:33) then we should look to his light… I suppose, really, that we shouldn’t look for his light, because we’re surrounded by his light. Always. His Light isn’t something we should need to look for, because it’s there right in front of our noses. We shouldn’t seek it, no, we should use it. Light was given to us as a gift. If someone gives you a gift you don’t discard it, you use it. If I came to your house and handed you an iPad as a gift, you wouldn’t drop it to the floor and then jump on it. You would use it, for your own purposes. That’s the same with God’s light. It has been given to us – as a gift – for us to use against the devil’s wicked, sly ways.
God’s light is one of the greatest gifts he has given to us. His light keeps us from darkness. Wherever there is light, darkness cannot prevail. And Vice-Versa. But only, wherever the is darkness just switch on God’s light. Let there be light.
Whenever you feel the devil blindfolding you or your candle beginning to flicker, just say to yourself “let there be light.”
“Let there be Light.”
A whisper perhaps; “Let there be light”
Or Shout it if necessary “Let there be light!”
Let there be light.
Let God’s gift of glorious light shine in and through us.
You cannot be full of light if you’re corrupt with darkness.
‘The night is nearly over; the day is almost here. So put aside the deeds of darkness and put on the armor of light.’ – Romans 13:12
There’s a reason God separated light from darkness on the first day of creation. Light is good, God saw that and so he pulled light from darkness. Light is good. God’s light is good! Let’s walk in God’s good light! Lets put aside the deeds of darkness. Carry the gift of light in one hand and the word to preach in the other, let us do this and walk along the glorious journey of God’s light!
Don’t give up, Don’t do it. If you feel tempted at all, in any way, then just tell yourself “let there be light.” Just persevere, the night is almost over, the day is almost here. Just keep going. Don’t take that, it’s not yours. Turn that off of your computer, it’s impure. Don’t say that nasty thought, it’s not Christ-like. The light is nearly here, don’t walk blindly along the devil’s path of sin.
Switch on the light.
The light will reveal what the devil is trying to do to you,
It will show you God’s power,
It will give you fulfillment.
With the light on, you’ll be able to walk without falling over any obstacles in your way. You’ll see what’s coming towards you. And hopefully dodge it.
Drop the Deeds of Darkness.
Walk with light. Walk in light.
Put on the armor of light, It’s your protection. Light saved you, made you see and now wants to protect you from the burning arrows of the evil one. Wear the suit of light with pride! Wear it with respect! Wear it with honour! Wear it with Love! Wear it with significance! Wear it with Wisdom! Put on the Light, only then you’ll break out of darkness, sin and the chains, and instead you’ll break into freedom!
Cast aside those deeds of darkness, they’re holding you back, they’re making you blind. Let there be light!
I always Think that when Jesus Resurrected on the third day, that the first thing he saw when the tomb’s stone rolled away was the light. The light which I always think reminded him that he has saved us. I always think that the light showed him what his sacrifice had done. Set us free. I always think that when he saw the light he thought in his head “Let there be Light. Glorious, fantastic Light!”
I want you to understand this.
1) God is Light
2) God separated Light from Darkness for a reason
3) Walk in the Light
4) The night is almost over, God’s light is around the corner. Persevere.
5) Wear the armor of Light to knock back the devil.
6) “Let there be light!”
7) Whenever you feel darkness creeping around the corner, open the blinds! Ask God for help and Let there be Light!
Light is good, it’s actually awesome. What are you going to cast aside? God’s gift of light, or the deeds of darkness?
I know what I’d choose.
Drop the Darkness.
What will you do to walk in God’s light?
What will you drop?
How will you wear God’s light?
Will you show people God’s light?
Will you become Light?
Just ask yourself over this next coming week.
“How Can I Spread Light?”
Just give 1John 1:5-10 a read (and beyond if you like, it’s a good piece of scripture)
Thanks for reading, Stay tuned for some more ideas. Maybe some on light, maybe not. We’ll have to see.
See you soon, Happy Blogging.
