JANUARY 18, 2023 / DAY #3
Matthew 5:15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and gives it a light to all who are in the house.
God’s Word says that we, God’s children, are the light of the world. However, how many of us feel that our lives are dim and hidden? Many of us, while going through life, experience various things that weaken us. We may be mistreated, are often insulted, and are always looked down upon by others, so that we feel inferior and inadequate. However, God’s word is never wrong. We need to realize that we are the temple of God and the Holy Spirit lives in us so that we have the light of Christ.
Today’s rhema also said that the lamp should not be placed under a bushel. A bushel is a measuring tool for dry crops used in ancient times. The volume of one bushel is about 35.24 liters. Because it is enormous, when a lamp is placed in it, the lamp will not be seen. Therefore, the lamp must be placed on the lampstand. That means God will lift us higher than we can imagine when the time comes.
That’s why throw away all fear, worry, and hopelessness in facing this life. Come closer to the miraculous light of God. Let’s declare that this year is a shining year for us. God will bring us to go up and not down, to be heads and not tails. This year God will bring us to a higher level, and our lives will reflect more of God’s light so that the darkness around us disappears.
When God uses His child, He will surely LIFT THEM.
1. Do you believe that God is the Wonderful Light? How do you know?
2. In what ways can God use you?
3. What would you do so that God’s light always shines in your life?
“Thank you, Lord Jesus, for the miraculous Light of God who always shines on our lives so that there is no more darkness and fear. In the name of the Lord Jesus, we pray. Amen.”
