Glory Seed Devotionals, 2015: Year of Promise
Move with the Light…
“…If you listen to me and do what I tell you, I will be your God, you will be my people, and all will go well for you.”” (Jeremiah 7:23, CEV)
My first reaction after reading this morning’s scripture, “God I want to listen to you but how are you speaking to me?” And you know what God said? Nothing. That’s what I heard. “But LORD if I believe you’re speaking to me and I do why can’t I hear you?” I thought maybe I could trick him into speaking me by asking a question. It didn’t work, however I was left “gut” feeling to look deeply in my heart and when I did I found myself with four words. “Move with the Light.” I knew Jesus to be the Light because he told me, “Once again Jesus spoke to the people. This time he said, “I am the light for the world! Follow me, and you won’t be walking in the dark. You will have the light that gives life.”” (John 8:12, CEV)
Thinking about, “Move with the Light,” I found myself looking at something Jesus said about light. “No one lights a lamp and then hides it or puts it under a clay pot. A lamp is put on a lampstand, so that everyone who comes into the house can see the light. Your eyes are the lamp for your body. When your eyes are good, you have all the light you need. But when your eyes are bad, everything is dark.” (Luke 11:33–34, CEV)
Even though I was reading them with my eyes in my heart I was reading. “No one with a relationship with Jesus hides him but puts him up front in their life where with his Light he leads them out of their world of darkness into God’s world of Pure Light. If your heart is right with God then you will have all of the Light you need and your life will be blessed in ways you’ve never been blessed with before.”
Looks like God spoke to me after all. Now I wonder was God speaking to you?
Believe! Anticipate! Experience! Be transformed!
Grace and PEACE, Amen!

Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit. (Romans 15:13 LEB)
