Are you the only flicker of light in a dark home, office, factory or school? A teacher, a student? Do you remember that in ANY dark space, just a “spit” of light, will light the whole room. IS THAT YOUR JOB? When you carry the Holy Spirit inside you, YOU ARE that light! How can you make the flame grow, so that people around you become aware of “something different” about YOU? IS there something “different” about you? YOUR JOB IS TO SHINE! NO MATTER WHERE you work!
John 1:5 “And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.”
What does it mean that: “… the darkness comprehended it not.” The dark can NOT stop even a flick of a light. No matter HOW dark a room is or even if you could pump MORE dark into a room-that even ONE small existence of a speck of light will shine!
To me? This is exciting! Because, I’m not a good witness of Jesus Christ. I’m not one of the people who can go up and talk to someone about salvation face to face and within 20 minutes they have led someone to Christ. I’ve NEVER been good at that. I’ve led my children to him, but I don’t know of one stranger that I have.
I think that MY calling is: mechanic. I love to work on, encourage God’s people to go out and do what I don’t have the talent to do. I love for them to feel better physically. I love for them to feel encouraged and feel better emotionally, too!
What is your “talent”? Is it to encourage? Share oils? Sing? Home school your children? Or just keep your little light shining in a bad environment at a plant job? Or in an office where everyone is gossiping/back-biting? In the restaurant ?
Maybe, IF we start asking ourselves the question: WHY am I working with these people? WHY am I stuck in this plant job? WHY does that person GRATE on my nerves? Could it be that you are the ONLY little “spit” of light in that office? In that plant? In your classroom?
Do you know that the act of praying will raise the MHz by 15 in the human body? So, if you are saved, and you walk into a dark, dark place, do you not think that physically, you’re going to carry in a little extra wattage into that place?
“Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” (Emphasis mine)!
Matthew 5:14-16 (KJV)
So examine yourself…are you giving off ANY light? Am I giving off ANY light?
Let’s purpose in our hearts, that starting today, that we will let that light just “glow” from us to all around us. Let other’s elbow one another and ask in a whisper, “There’s something “different” about her or him….WHAT is IT?”
Can others distinguish you out of a crowd just by your good attitude? By the glow on your face? By your encouraging words? By your optimism all based on your faith in God?
