Glory Seed Devotionals, 2016: Expedition of Light and Truth
God’s uninhibited Love…
Okay now that our expedition is underway, are you ready for me to throw you a curve ball? Be on your toes. Okay here it comes. Yesterday we talked about taking a new route however the Light and Truth we’ll discover is not really new because… “All things continue the way they have been since the beginning. What has happened will happen again; there is nothing new here on earth. Someone might say, “Look, this is new,” but really it has always been here. It was here before we were.” (Ecclesiastes 1:9–10, NCV)
The key word on our expedition is not NEW it is MORE! Picture yourself in a darkened room and as the light it turned up more and more things come into view. There is a scene in the movie the National Treasure where Nicolas Cage and company are standing in the treasure room a torch ignites some oil and slowly and methodically the room lights up revealing the treasure that has been there for years. The only difference is in the treasure, in the movie the treasure was ancient artifacts our treasure is Jesus who has been with us all along in whom we will discover (brighter) Light and (deeper) Truth.
The Light is before us and in us, the Truthfulness is before us and in us we simply need the Holy Spirit to help us open our lives to them. At outset, let us affix our lives on this the Greatest Truth of all GOD LOVES YOU! The truthfulness of that Truth is “written” in our daily lives.
Let there be Light – and there was LOVE! GOD’s uninhibited LOVE!
Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might!
Grace and PEACE, Amen!

“No, let a new and better hope within our hearts be stirred: O God, grant yet more light and truth to break forth from your Word.”
