‘WORTH CONSIDERING” LIGHT 4/1/19 (Across my desk today from Joel’s ministry.)
“The way of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, which shines ever brighter until the full light of day.” (Proverbs 4:18, NLT)
Are you facing a situation that seems dark today? God promises that your path will shine brighter and brighter as you seek His truth and righteousness in every situation. What is righteousness? Righteousness means to be in “right standing” with God. Being in right standing with God is about submitting your life to Him. It’s about obeying His commands and seeking His plan for your life on a daily basis. God wants to be involved in every detail of your life. It pleases Him when you come to Him. It pleases Him when you study your Bible and talk to Him in prayer. And just as the increasing light of the sun helps you see better in the natural, the increasing light of God’s Word will guide you in every decision you have to make. No matter what you may be facing today, take time to ask the Lord to shine His light on your thoughts. Ask Him to confirm His plan for you today. Ask Him to shine the light of His Word in your heart so that you can clearly see the next step to take. As you continue to pursue His truth and righteousness, you will experience more of His blessings and live the life of abundance that He has in store for you!
A Prayer for Today
“God, I know that You have a wonderful plan and purpose for me. I want to be in “”right standing”” with You today. Show me your ways and teach me to walk righteously before you. Shine your light in my heart and give me strength and wisdom to pursue the path You have in-store for me. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
Way back in 1970 the Holy Spirit had me go through the Bible on “LIGHT” like instructed in Isaiah 28:10. “For precept must be upon precept, precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a little.” A lot more in this chapter that is important, hope you read from 9-15 for sure. So here is what I came up with:
Let There Be Light
And God said, let there be light and there was light: (1). Arise, shine: for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee (2). Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead and Christ shall give thee light (3). This is the message which we have heard and declare unto you, that God is light, and in Him is no darkness at all (4). He that doeth the truth cometh to the light, that his deeds may be made manifest, that they are wrought in God (5). 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 (6). This is the condemnation, that light is come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil (7). For everyone that doeth evil hateth the light neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved (8). But ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, an holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into his marvelous light (9). Thy Light shall break forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth as the morning, and thine health shall spring forth speedily: and thy righteousness shall go before thee; the glory of the Lord shall be thy reward (10). Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. (11). The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light (12). The city had no need of the sun, neither of the moon to shine in it: for the glory of God did lighten it, and the Lamb is the Light thereof (13). And there shall be no night there; and they need no candle, neither light of the sun for the Lord God giveth them light: and they shall reign for ever and ever (14).

9. 1 Pet. 2:9. 10. Isa. 85:8 11. Matt. 5:14, 12. Rom. 13:12, 13. Rev. 21:33, 14. Rev. 22:5,

You are created an eternal soul, according to the Holy Bible. And in this life only, you have an opportunity to choose God’s Light for eternity. May you choose wisely. John 3, Romans 10:9-10
And this is a very simple example of how GOD’s TRUTH is to be found and confirmed, if interested.
Yours, in HIS great love and wonderful grace and mercy, Ken<>< (For other teachings like this you can go to: www.Trinity-Aloha.org and click the link: “Worth Considering”)
