GOD’S AWE-INSPIRING LIGHT ;
(Transferred From Darkness To Light)
👤 Pastor Chris Oyakhilome;
📖 TO THE BIBLE
1 Peter 2:9 “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light.”
◀️ LET’S TALK
God always has a purpose for what He does; He doesn’t just do things. For example, He didn’t just bring you out of darkness, He also transferred you into His marvellous light. Always, He brings you out, to bring you in. Colossians 1:13 AMPC says, “[The Father] has delivered and drawn us to Himself out of the control and the dominion of darkness and has transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love.” Did you notice He didn’t just deliver you from the power of darkness? That alone would have been wonderful, but He went a step further to catapult you to the Kingdom of His love-son.
Thus, our opening scripture above reveals your present location: God’s marvellous and awe-inspiring light! That’s your domicile; therefore, no darkness in your life. It brings to mind the words of Jesus in John 8:12. He said, “…I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” We’re the children of Light, dwelling in the Light, and the Lord is the Father of lights (James 1:17). Darkness represents sin, death, evil and all the negativities associated with satan. You’ve been brought out of all that, including sickness, disease, depression, poverty, frustrations, etc., into the gracious and glorious life in Christ; the liberty of the sons of God.
2 Corinthians 4:6 says, “…It is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts….” We see by Him; He’s our light. Speaking prophetically, the Psalmist, in Psalm 36:9 says, “For with You is the fountain of life; in Your light we see light.” You dwell in God’s light, in His Kingdom of light, where you reign over darkness, manifesting the virtues and excellence of Almighty God.

My life is for the glory of God. I’ve been divinely commissioned to display the virtues and perfections of divinity. I manifest the power and excellence of Christ to everyone in my world. Thank you blessed Lord, for bringing me out of darkness into the glorious liberty of the sons of God, where I reign and rule in life, in Jesus’ Name. Amen.
