Light Shine Bright

Have you ever had a chuckle with God? He speaks to you in such a way that throws you for a loop but makes you realize, he is hilarious. This morning as I was ending my time in prayer, I got a taste of his sense of humor wrapped in truth.

He gave me the command, REST.

He spoke so clearly to me and said, “I called you to be a bright light not a dim one”.

When we do not rest, the light that shines from within slowly starts to dim. Sometimes if we are not careful, even burn out. Our world is a 24/7 kind of world. We have access to everything at our fingertips, all day, every single day. How many of you know, however, that we aren’t supposed to be like the world? Can I get an AMEN!? Our light, gives God glory. So shouldn’t we be a good steward with our time and rest too?

The rest we need and we crave so much is ONLY found in him. Take one day a week and REST. It is holy & a gift. He made it just for us! Disconnect from the world and get recharged by the brightest light around.

& remember we are called to be a BRIGHT light, not a dim one.

“You are the light of [Christ to] the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good deeds and moral excellence, and [recognize and honor and] glorify your Father who is in heaven.”-Matthew 5:14-16 AMP

Jesus said to them, “The Sabbath was made for man, not man for the Sabbath.” -Mark 2:27 AMP
