Turn His Light On – Pastor Chris
Saturday, June 24, 2017
Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee (Isaiah 60:1).
The Word of God is the light of life. Turn the light on, and you’ll see the unseen; you’ll see the realities of the spirit realm. Suddenly, you’ll discover that everything you thought was missing wasn’t missing. You’ll realize that you actually have in abundance everything you thought you never had. Once you turn the light of God on, never turn it off again. You’re called to walk in that light: in the light of His righteousness, His redemption, His justification, His wisdom, and His prosperity; you’re to walk in the light of the new creation.
Sometimes, when studying or listening to God’s Word, you seem to leave this world. The things of this life: the pains, the darkness, the disappointments, and the crises of life just seem to fade away. Don’t think it’s just a mirage; you’ve been transported of the Holy Ghost to the true realm of life. Don’t say, “Well, as I listened to the Word during the service, I thought I was in heaven, but now I’m back to reality.” Returning to reality in this sense would mean going back into darkness. Hold on to what you’ve received. Say, “The glory that I saw in the Word is the real thing. I hold on to it.” Glory to God!
Do you want to see who you really are and what you have? Turn the light of God on. There’s a lot you’ll never see if you’re using the light of the sun or earthly electricity. The light of God—the true light—shows you that you’re in divine health; it shows you the perfect will of God, and all that you are in Him. See yourself the way God sees you: an heir of God, and a joint-heir with Christ!
The Word of God is a lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. As I see with the light of the Word, I see myself as the royalty that I am, victorious, prosperous, healthy, wise, and strong, and I walk in the light of this truth.
