My eighth Power Tale concerns God’s light shining through you. 14-16 “Here’s another way to put it: You’re here to be light, bringing out the God-colors in the world. God is not a secret to be kept. We’re going public with this, as public as a city on a hill. If I make you light-bearers, you don’t think I’m going to hide you under a bucket, do you? I’m putting you on a light stand. Now that I’ve put you there on a hilltop, on a light stand—shine! Keep open house; be generous with your lives. By opening up to others, you’ll prompt people to open up with God, this generous Father in heaven.” Matthew 5:14-16 The Message
God’s light shining through you everywhere you go
Many prophets before they went on to be with the Lord prophesied that if we do not have a move of the Spirit we will lose this next generation. Personally speaking, I have looked at the natural and have felt the USA is on a downward spiral of humanism and worship of self. This self-worship has crept in making the word of God of none effect. My word for you today is you are the move of God everywhere you go reaching this generation.
One night my wife, Dana, and I were ministering to a family member. As we sat there, contemplating and bearing our souls, they wanted us to pray about the situation. This is a sign that your light is shining. Before praying with them my first question to our family member was “Have you accepted Christ as your Savior?”
“No,” they said.
I shared a simple message that we are sinners, we need a savior and how Christ died for your sins. All we need to do is pray and you can be forgiven of your sins and know Christ as your personal Savior.
The family member said yes after a long pause (let the Spirit do His work). We prayed and they asked Christ to come into their life. We also prayed about the circumstance for God to move in the other situation.
Never think or assume a person is saved. After our time together I inquired as to why they had not been saved. The reason was they did not know how simple it was. They thought they needed to know a lot of scripture. So they were not able to simply turn to Jesus.
Be aware of God’s light shining through you at all times
It’s not magic! God’s wants to work through you. You just need to cooperate!
