“In Him was life and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.” John 1:4-5
I struggle with knowing how discern when, “it’s God,” or when it’s just me.
I’m sure I’m not the only one.
After a recent time of prayer, I could hear that familiar still, small Voice repeating one word over and over in my heart, “Shine!”
I still get a lump in my throat when I consider how great my Savior’s knowledge of me is and how this one word ,whispered into my heart at that moment portrayed a deeper understanding of me than anyone with skin on ever could reach.
Sometimes like a floodlight, and yet at this moment, like a tiny magnifying glass, Jesus was probing my heart and revealing the pile of pebbles I had unknowingly allowed to crowd out His Light from fully touching my heart.
Rhonda, I Am either the Light of the world ALIVE in you, or I Am not.
If I Am, then believe Me, and let My Light Shine through you.
I never asked you to fully comprehend My Light.
You can’t. So stop trying.
I asked you simply to SHINE!
Stay surrendered to Me.
I don’t wrestle with flesh. I already overcome it.
So, believe Me, stand on My shoulders and SHINE with the radiance I Am already entrusting to You.
“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
I believe You, Jesus.
I shine in Your Light
