It can be sad and depressing to see our world stray so far from God’s will. Hunger, violence, and lack of morality tear at lives and destroy hopes and dreams. We often hear that we are getting what we deserve. That God is judging this lost world.
Nothing could be further from the truth. God has poured His love out on the world over and over again. It is the enemy who works to kill, steal, and destroy. It is the enemy who works to cover the world in darkness.
Jesus is the light of the world, and He made us His lights as well. (Mat 5:14) God is not judging the world and at the same time saving it. He put Himself in us to be salvation to a lost people.
But it looks so bad out there! Oh, there’s a reason for that. Look up and lift up your heads, because your redemption draws near. (Luk 21:28) I believe that the enemy goes into overdrive in a panic at what God is about to do. The glory of this present house will be greater than the glory of the former house, says the Lord Almighty. (Haggai 2:9)
God is about to pour out His glory in a way that has never been seen before. And He’s going to use you to do it. Remember, you are the light of the world. When do you see a candle the easiest? At noon, at sunset, or at midnight? You see light shine the brightest at the darkest hour.
You are a light that cannot be missed. A light that will draw all people to Him, people desperate to get out of the darkness. They’re not going to be interested in Bible stories. They’re not going to be interested in nice counseling. They’re going to want to see God, and God will be there for them.
You are God’s chosen vessel to bring salvation, healing, and deliverance. Are you ready? Can you operate in power and in might? Because the time is coming when you will need to. If your light is dim and weak because you don’t actual live what you claim, then it’s time to start. It’s time to start believing that God is who He says He is.
Will He heal when you pray? Yes. Will He save a horrible and messed up situation when you ask? Yes. Will He bless beyond expectation because You declare His goodness? Yes, yes, and yes.
God will be what He says He is and you will show Him off to the world who is looking for Him. Your light will be amazing and grow from flickering to blazing when you begin to live in complete faith and trust. Start trusting God now, because your life is about to begin.
