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, thank you for filling this dark vessel with Your glorious Light. Shine Your Light through the broken pieces of this vessel to others around me. I am humbled by the surpassing greatness of Your everlasting power that resides in me. Help me not to waste opportunities to shine the Light of the knowledge of Your glory God in the face of Christ. In the name of Jesus and for His glory, amen.
This morning at worship I was blessed by singing one of my favorite songs. I turned it into a prayer as I often do. The song brought so much truth and Scripture to mind I couldn’t help but be moved to write devotionals pertaining to the song. I hope you will be blessed by this Cliff Richard song.
Lord the Light or Your Love is shining,
In the midst of the darkness shining,
Jesus light of the world shine upon us,
Set us free by the truth You now bring us,
Shine on me. Shine on me.

For He rescued us from the domain of darkness, and transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son, — Colossians 1:13
[Walk by the Spirit ] It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery. — Galatians 5:1
Jesus *said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me. — John 14:6
God’s Word says it so well. I will close here with — Jesus is the light of the world who rescued us from the domain of darkness, set us free to stand firm on His life because He is the way and truth. God bless you as you allow Him to shine on you.
