When God Brings The Light

Have you ever felt as though you were in the dark about something?

Like you just didn’t understand? What you have felt you needed was some light on the subject, whatever it is. I’ve had those times also. I want to encourage you to draw near to God and talk with Him about it. Just as He causes the sun to rise, so too, He has a way of bringing the light on your path just when you need it. In the times when you feel as though you need a new perspective, you need a fresh look into God’s Word. There are some things I do when I need a fresh view and a deeper digging into the Word of God. I grab a new Bible study and live in it for 4-6 weeks. Sometimes, I may even go on a day retreat with the Lord and spend time studying many pages in that new Bible study, and combine it with some prayer, pouring out my heart to the Lord. I also like to get a different translation and include it in my Bible study. Most of the time I read NASB, but in these times when I need a fresh view, I might live in the NIV or the NLT translation.

The other evening I looked out the window to see how the sunset was, and I saw it was going to be magnificent. I grabbed my camera and got some great pictures. I knew the next morning clouds would be spectacular, so I got up early, and spent time with the Lord. I looked outside again, and saw that the clouds were incredible and there was going to be what I call a glow for a few minutes with the sunrise. So again I grabbed my camera. This is the view I saw. It was a new view, different than the night before, but equally as magnificent and glorious. In the same way, God will light up your life with His Word, and give you a new view with the understanding you need, when you need it.

… times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord.
Acts 3:19

So today, draw near to Him, ask for a fresh view in His Word, and wait for Him to give you the light you need. One great blessing is that you will experience His nearness, and find revival for your soul.

♥ Blessings and Grace to You!
