“The light of the righteous rejoiceth: but the lamp of the wicked shall be put out.” Proverbs 13:9 KJV
In the Book of St.John 1:4&5 it states “In him was life; and the life was the light of men And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not” Life comes from Jesus Christ. The Light is Jesus Christ. No matter how dark our lives may seem or get even, The Light of Christ will lead us safely back to Him. We are His & He lay HIS life down for us. How precious are we to Him. Friend, His love for us is immeasurable. SO whether it be in the valley of the shadow of death; the storm; the cliff-edge; the depths of despair: just sound the alarm & The Light rescues us-immediately. At times we don’t even realise we need rescuing but the Light is already present, obliterating the darkness! One chink of Light is enough to ruin any dark room much less to the Light of The World, crushing the head of our enemies hallelujah?? The lamp of our enemy will be outed by the love The Light of Christ bestows on us, His children. He will not allow our enemies to triumph over us. Now our enemies may not be human, they can be addictions; sickness; anyone or anything which causes harm to us; God will deliver us from & ‘the lamp of the wicked’ which cannot overpower The Source of Supernatural, Eternal Light because it is temporal, will be put out!
We are called to be the Light & salt of this earth. “We are the cities set on a hill which cannot be hid.” We are billboards for the sincere love of Jesus. We must not let our Light flicker but stay connected to The Source who is Our Lord & Saviour Jesus Christ & we must love as He is love; forgive as He forgave us; feed the hungry as He feeds us; clothe the poor as He did us; see about the broken-hearted as He healed us and will perfect all which He started in our lives. We must reach the unreachable & touch the untouchable. Today we reach out for The Bereaved, those grieving now & those who have struggled to go on following their loss. Death comes to touch us all but with The Light & love of Jesus & His eternal peace comforting us, helping us to go on in this life, makes it liveable because we have hope. Will you join me and all at LPCF as we reach out & pray for The Bereaved to make a difference this 2017? Do you know someone who is grieving or facing the loss of a loved one? Is there someone you work with who is grieving? Maybe in your community? Pray for those displaced by war and the brutality and deaths they have tragically witnessed. Nothing is too desperate for Jesus. You can pray for them. I can too. You can do something kind, we can make an impact. Are you struggling and would like prayer? Please send your requests here and we will lift you up in prayer. God is able. Prayer by faith in Jesus changes things. HE can make a difference in us & WE can make a difference to someone each day. God bless you,
