Proclaim the Light

Thus says God the Lord, Who created the heavens and stretched them out, Who spread out the earth and its offspring, Who gives breath to the people on it And spirit to those who walk in it,
“I am the Lord, I have called you in righteousness, I will also hold you by the hand and watch over you, And I will appoint you as a covenant to the people,
As a light to the nations,
To open blind eyes, To bring out prisoners from the dungeon And those who dwell in darkness from the prison.
Isaiah 42:5‭-‬7 NASB

Jesus, Light of the world, I will arise and shine for Your light has come and Your glory has risen before me. In Your hand is the life of every living thing, And the breath of all mankind yet Your Light shone in the darkness and the darkness did not comprehend it. You are the Lord God, who upholds my right hand, Who says to me, ‘Do not fear, I will help you.’
I pray for Your chosen people, a royal priesthood, a people for Your own possession, that we will be bold in proclaiming the excellencies of You who called us out of darkness into Your marvelous Light. Spirit of God who made me, breath of the Almighty who gives me life; Spirit of the Lord God be upon me, anoint me to bring good news to the afflicted; to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to captives And freedom to prisoners by Your Almighty power. In Your name and for Your glory Lord God, amen.
Isaiah 60:1/Job 12:10/Isaiah 41:13/

John 1:5/1 Peter 2:9/Job 33:4/Isaiah 61:1 NASB

🌹Turn to Me and be saved, all the ends of the earth; For I am God, and there is no other. I have sworn by Myself, The word has gone forth from My mouth in righteousness And will not turn back, That to Me every knee will bow, every tongue will swear allegiance. They will say of Me, ‘Only in the Lord are righteousness and strength.’ Men will come to Him, And all who were angry at Him will be put to shame. In the Lord all the offspring of Israel Will be justified and will glory.”
Isaiah 45:22‭-‬25 NASB

Do you have have the Light of Life, Jesus Christ?

Matthew 5:14‭-‬16 NASB


Jesus, You have made Your own a light in  this world. Let my life shine in this world in such a way that others may see the true Light and glorify the Father in heaven. For Your glory I ask, amen.

Listen and Heed

Listen and give heed, do not be haughty, For the Lord has spoken.
Give glory to the Lord your God, Before He brings darkness And before your feet stumble On the dusky mountains, And while you are hoping for light He makes it into deep darkness, And turns it into gloom.
But if you will not listen to it, My soul will sob in secret for such pride; And my eyes will bitterly weep And flow down with tears, Because the flock of the Lord has been taken captive.
This is your lot, the portion measured to you From Me,” declares the Lord, “Because you have forgotten Me And trusted in falsehood.
Jeremiah 13:15‭-‬17‭, ‬25 NASB

🌹I have wiped out your transgressions like a thick cloud And your sins like a heavy mist. Return to Me, for I have redeemed you.”

By His Power

For God, who said, “Light shall shine out of darkness,” is the One who has shone in our hearts to give the Light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ.
But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, so that the surpassing greatness of the power will be of God and not from ourselves;
2 Corinthians 4:6‭-‬7 NASB

God is the One who shines the light of salvation in us and through us. It is by His power we are saved unto eternal life and it is by His power we are to share the Light, Jesus Christ, the very knowledge of God’s glory!

We are not able to proclaim the gospel without the gospel, Jesus Christ, in us. What a humbling treasure of God to choose to use us for His purpose of salvation to His glory, by His power.

🌹Share the gospel to the glory of God!

God’s Faithfulness And Salvation

“I have proclaimed glad tidings of righteousness in the great congregation; Behold, I will not restrain my lips, O Lord, You know. I have not hidden Your righteousness within my heart; I have spoken of Your faithfulness and Your salvation; I have not concealed Your lovingkindness and Your truth from the great congregation.”
Psalms 40:9‭-‬10 NASB

“not hidden Your righteousness”:
David spoke of God’s righteousness. He did not hide it in his heart, he proclaimed it. Paul proclaimed also speaking to the elders in Ephesus.
“how I did not shrink from declaring to you anything that was profitable, and teaching you publicly and from house to house,”
“For I did not shrink from declaring to you the whole purpose of God.”
Acts 20:20‭, ‬27 NASB

“I have spoken of Your faithfulness and salvation”

“I will sing of the lovingkindness of the Lord forever; To all generations I will make known Your faithfulness with my mouth.”

🌹 Are you proclaiming the righteousness and faithfulness of God to the church and all generations? Is His salvation that has been given to you, motivate you to tell others?

Dark to Light

for you were formerly darkness, but now you are Light in the Lord; walk as children of Light (for the fruit of the Light consists in all goodness and righteousness and truth), trying to learn what is pleasing to the Lord. Ephesians 5:8‭-‬10 NASB

Praise God for His glorious Light!! Because of Jesus we do not have to walk in darkness. If we are walking in darkness it is by choice. When you believed on the Son of God you entered into His eternal light.

Has God changed your life? Walking as children of the Light, Jesus Christ, we produce fruit which is goodness, righteousness and truth. No excuses. Are you walking in the Light?

Find what is pleasing to God through His word, the Bible. The result? Walking in the Light and producing fruit.

🌹but if we walk in the Light as He Himself is in the Light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus His Son cleanses us from all sin.    1 John 1:7 NASB

Shine

But there is nothing covered up that will not be revealed, and hidden that will not be known. Accordingly, whatever you have said in the dark will be heard in the light, and what you have whispered in the inner rooms will be proclaimed upon the housetops.         Luke 12:2‭-‬3 NASB

Nothing hidden, nothing covered. We might as well confess, share our deepest darkest secrets, with the Lord right now. Bring your sin, your dark thoughts, your failures, all your secrets to the Light. Let them be revealed by you to Jesus, the Light of the world and let Him fill you with His light so you may shine His Light to the world.

If therefore your whole body is full of light, with no dark part in it, it will be wholly illumined, as when the lamp illumines you with its rays.”     Luke 11:36 NASB

🌹 Confess. Be filled. Shine for Jesus. Today.
