1. Pray and Trust - 2 Corinthians 4:6
1. Pray and ask God how you can let your light shine. Trust that God will lead you in his ways. -2 Co 4:6
"For God, who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” made his light shine in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of God’s glory displayed in the face of Christ" -2 Co 4:6
Every Christian should know the Jesus said "You are the light of the world... let your light so shine before men that they will see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven." After all, most of us have sang "This little light of mine" at one time or another.
But how do you let your light shine? This month we will be looking at some practical ways to let your light shine. But this is not about you... It's about God. It's about what he has done in you. It's about Jesus who loves and gives grace.
So the first step...as in just about everything... is to pray. Pray that God will shine in you, through you, and over you. Pray that your life will not be a distraction the light. Pray that God will give you the courage to shine in all situations.
And then trust God to do something wonderful in your life. He already has in Jesus Christ. Now trust him to use your life as a beacon to bring others to him.
You are either a star shining bright for him or you are a black hole. A black hole is a star that has refused to shine. It collapses on it's own gravity and becomes so dense that it's gravity begins to suck in everything around it... including the light of other stars. Don't be a black hole!
May God bless you today as you ask him to help you shine with the light and love of Jesus in your heart.
PRAYER THOUGHT: Dear Father God; You are light and glory! You are magnificent, beyond description, awesome, and wondrous. Fill me with your light and let me shine. Help me to be the man you want me to be. In the name of Jesus, AMEN!
