A Glory Seed Devotional
The Rainy Day Light…
“I am the light that has come into the world. No one who has faith in me will stay in the dark.” (John 12:46, CEV)
I am looking out the back door of our cabin and it is still dark out. The rain is hitting hard enough to nearly drown out the sound of the meditation music in my headphones. For many rainy days are a nuisance and days like this can be a source of frustration. However, this morning I find myself enjoying the sound of rain hitting the roof and with it and the inspirational music in my imagination they become prophetic reminding me in spite of the lack of light outside THE LIGHT still shines. Not only does The Light continue to shine but the symphony of the rain and the music together become words of the Father, words each one of us need to hear when life becomes dark and dreary and storm clouds temporarily try to block The Light.
This morning the Holy Spirit, God’s active voice is saying, “Just as the heavens are higher than the earth, my thoughts and my ways are higher than yours. Rain and snow fall from the sky. But they don’t return without watering the earth that produces seeds to plant and grain to eat. That’s how it is with my words. They don’t return to me without doing everything I send them to do.” (Isaiah 55:9–11, CEV)
While God may not be the source of the rain storms that block The Light driving us indoors God always accompanies us through them with a divine purpose in the outcome and while you and I may never know the purpose we will have intimacy with God through The Light.
Into every life rain and darkness will fall yet in the rain and darkness The Light will not only shine but become a great blessing as well. And this morning as I listen to the rain and music I know The Light that shines IN each one of us is brighter, more powerful than the light that is now illumining outside and even at mid-day. “The light keeps shining in the dark, and darkness has never put it out.” (John 1:5, CEV)
Believe it! Experience it!
Grace and PEACE,
