TURN THE LIGHT ON YOURSELF.
But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin (1 John 1:7).
God’s Word is light. Light defines, describes, and makes manifest. If you turn off the light in a room, you won’t be able to see things in that room with your optical eyes. Likewise, your spiritual eyes need the light of God’s Word to see in the realm of the Spirit.
When you turn on the light of God on a particular situation, you’ll see the truth—the reality from God’s perspective. Suddenly, you’ll discover that everything you thought was missing was intact; everything you thought you didn’t have, you actually have in abundance. If you’re using the light of the sun or the incandescent light, there’re a whole lot you’d never see. But under the light of God’s Word, everything is made manifest.
Hebrews 4:13 says, “Neither is there any creature that is not manifest in his sight: but all things are naked and opened unto the eyes of him with whom we have to do.” Nothing is hidden under the light of God’s Word. Turn that light on yourself and see the truth about your success, prosperity, and glorious life in Christ! Turn it on, and never turn it off again, because you’re supposed to keep walking in the light, as He is in the light.
Keep walking in the light of your righteousness, justification, wisdom, and new life in Christ Jesus. Under God’s light, you’re strong, full of the Holy Spirit and power. You’re one with whom anything is possible. See yourself in this light; walk in the light of your victory over the world, over the devil and over the circumstances of life!
The Word of God is the only true light. Apart from showing you your endowments and rights in Christ, it also produces in you such changes that are consistent with His message, leading and directing you. No wonder the Psalmist said, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path” (Psalm 119:105).
Dear heavenly Father, I thank you for the light of your Word in my spirit that illuminates my path in life, in the direction of your perfect will. I know, and walk in my inheritance in Christ Jesus, because the Word has revealed them to me. Blessed be God!
2 Corinthians 4:6 For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to [give] the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
John 1:7-9 The same came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all [men] through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but [was sent] to bear witness of that Light. 9 [That] was the true Light, which lighteth every man that cometh into the world.
John 8:12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.
