This Little Light Of Mine
THIS LITTLE LIGHT OF MINE
➖Daily Word ➖Feb.06.2019➖Pastor
Why would anyone light a lamp then put it into a container to try and darken it, as if that Light could be contained?
Yet, you may have felt as if you have been contained, restrained and controlled? God never intended that we who have received His Light and Life be restricted. He has shown His Light into your heart, and He wants to shine from you to change your world!
So, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your life and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matthew.5:16).
Jesus chose you, gave you His Identity and had mercy on you so that “You can show others the goodness of God, for He called you out of the darkness into His wonderful light” (1Peter.2:9).
A hostile enemy has a “containment policy” – a plan to shut you down. Any attempt to extinguish your light, or endeavor to destroy your life and testimony is from the enemy of your soul. Ignorantly sometimes, even those close to you will try to “box” you in – to put you in a “container.”
But you are a unique vessel, chosen by God as part of His Body in this earth. There is fire burning deep within you; one that cannot be put out. The flame is growing brighter and brighter; the passion is consuming. That is the Light that will shine out from you! That is the Light that cannot be contained!
”Now no one after lighting a lamp covers it over with a container, or puts it under a bed; but he puts it on a lamp stand, so that those who come in may see the light.” (Luke.8:16-17)
There is no containment policy that can restrain the outrageous Sons of God, who walk in the Authority of their Master and Lord!
“For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which is revealed in us” (Rom.8:18).
He has set you on a tall stand, so that
all who come near may see His light! Selah! ~ Shelia Hart Artt
