Today I am thinking about light.What is light and how does light enter into a man?Scripture declares in Psalm 119:130 that the entrance of God’s Word gives light and gives understanding to the simple.It is God’s Word that brings light into a man’s spirit.Jesus said He is the Light of the world.[John 8:12].Jesus and the Word are one.[John 1:1]. This means that without the Word of God entering into our lives light does not enter.It is God’s Word that shines light into every man’s soul.[John1:9]. We must let God’s Word enter into our lives so that every hidden thing will be exposed by His Light.In the light of this we will explore 3 definitions.
In Psalm 119:130 scripture states that “The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.”
In Hebrews 4:12 Scripture declares “For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”
Psalm 119:105 states “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path.”
Entrance comes from the word entry, or to enter, to come or go in,to penetrate,this means an access, a way or a path to go in.
Light is something that makes things visible or affords illumination:to become bright, as with light or color.
As we explore these 3 words in the context of God’s Word,it means that without God’s light entering into our lives,we have no clue about spiritual things.The enemy hides situations in our lives in order to ensnare us.When we look around and darkness is still lurking around it means that light has not penetrated.We are to seek God’s light through His Word until darkness flees.
Light and darkness do not mix,they are never friends. Light remains master over darkness forever.Darkness never argues when light appears! When you enter a dark room and flip on the light switch, darkness disappears immediately without argument! This is the way God’s light dissipates satanic darkness every time!
Let God’s light enter into your spirit man and you will win the battles of life every time.
How does God’s light enter into you?
1. Read God’s Word consistently-with the help of the Holy Spirit.
2. Study God’d Word consistently-with the help of the Holy Spirit.
3. Meditate on God’s Word consistently-with the help of the Holy Spirit.
4.Pray and fast regularly with God’s Word with the help of the Holy Spirit.
6. Maintain a life of intimacy with the help of the Holy Spirit, in praise,worship,praying,fasting and such like.
5.Lay aside sin, weights,(Hebrews 12:1) and works of the flesh from your life and unclog your “spiritual pipes” before embarking on any spiritual exercise like praying and fasting-When you pray and fast with unforgiveness and bitterness in your heart you are threading on dangerous ground and setting yourself up for demonic attacks instead. You can only win your battles when you stand with Christ and not with satan in unforgiveness,anger or bitterness or any such thing. Mark 3:24 states “And if a kingdom be divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand.”Embarking in praying and fasting with unforgiveness lodged in the heart is so common among Christians today. This is the very thing Christ said not to do!Let us walk in righteousness,peace and joy of the Holy Ghost.(Romans 14:17)Now,forgive yourself ,forgive others,live in peace with every man as much as possible and move on to victory in life.
