Focus: Psalms 36:9 - KJV
9. For with thee is the fountain of life: in thy light shall we see light.
When it is the fall season, most plantations lose their vegetation: the life of the trees and plants appear to whither; but as spring comes with its light from the sun, they start to be revamped and come back to life. When summer fully comes and the light from the sun intensifies, the greenery is portrayed as if there was never a lull in life and even the flowers blossom for all eyes to admire. Invariably, without real light, plants have no life and we dare say, animals too. For it is in summer that we see the vibrancy of the plants, the animals and even man.
The Lord Jesus Christ asserts that He is the Light of the world. It presupposes that life is meaningful and vibrant if we allow this Light to shine on us so that our lives may also bring forth light. The converse is equally true: those who reject Christ reject the light and life becomes gloomy to, and around them. Let us please look critically at nations that reject the light of Christ: even their vegetations are gone and where there are, it is purely artificial. Meanwhile, artificial things do not stand the test of time. Lives without the Light of Christ wither so quickly; if, however they will attract the Light to themselves, they will start to bud again like the withered flower that comes alive in spring. How it works? It is that which God has ordained and can never be changed. Unless we accept the sacrifice of Christ for us by surrendering to Him, we call Him a fool and therefore cannot take benefit of Him.
Beloved, the things we say, they are Spirit and they are life: there is no deceiving anyone about the power of the Light in Christ. No matter how far long darkness has dealt with anyone, when the Light comes, darkness disappears. All we need to do is to denounce darkness in which we had been groping helplessly, and embrace the Light for positive effect. Let us for once desire a change – moving away from the wickedness of darkness into the loving embrace of the Light that our life may show positive effects. Let us not deceive ourselves, there is no half way effect in the matter of Christ: we are either with Him or we are not. If we are not, we yet remain in crass darkness wherein death lies. For life, we need to come out quickly.
SOLUTION: The best way to receive life is to expose ourselves more to the Light. Let us therefore find ourselves located in the Light, perpetually, so that life may be better formed in us. Incidentally, the same Light is the word of God. Let us deliberate more in the word, for better life.
Please pray: Father, please let the light of your countenance shine perpetually on me for life, and it more abundantly, in Jesus’ name. Please do not let me ever fall out of your Light in Jesus’ name. Let your light give me eternal life in Jesus’ name.
