I have been through depressive moments when I thought it was all over and there was no hope or future in my life. Life seemed so dark that it was impossible to see the little speck of light shining in my path. I blamed my parents, friends, government for every mistakes or mid life crisis and never took responsibilities. It felt like it was all their fault, my life was the same as yesterday without any transformation. It was so difficult to get by on a daily basis because I only saw my limitations, problems or obstacles and not the solution. So what changed in my life? His light brought life to my life and transformed my whole life
In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it John 1:4-5
WHO IS HE?
Jesus is the light of the world that shined upon me and illuminated every dark patches of my life. He is the Father of light that brought everlasting life. He is my redeemer, restorer, the pillar that holds my life. He is my Father, the lover of my soul, the one I run to in times of trouble and needs, the one I pour my heart out to.
He remains the same yesterday, today and forever more. His light brought life to every dead situation, He brought insights, enlightment, wisdom, knowledge and counsel to my understanding. For You will light my lamp; The Lord my God will enlighten my darkness Psalm 18:28 For with You is the fountain of life; In Your light we see light Psalm 36:9.
HOW HIS LIGHT BROUGHT LIFE
The light transformation in my life was a gradual process I must confess. There was an intentional longing desire on my side to search for more of Him, seeking His face in a place of intimacy with the Lord. I was thirsty for more, to know more of who He is and His ways.
When I found Him something significant happened, changes took place that impacted my life. I began to speak differently, speak life, peace, positively with faith, love and hope. As you grow in the Word it becomes a part of you, solidly rooted in your heart.
When His light brings life into you life, you find joy, peace and abundance of His love. That does not mean the problems, obstacles all disappear in a twinkle of an eye, oh no. But rather He walks with you through the fire so you do not get burnt. He is with you every step of the way, never leaving nor forsaking you.
MY PRAYER FOR YOU
If you would like to experience more of Him, if you would like to live a life of transformation and restoration impacting those around you. And your answer is a strong firm YES, ask Jesus Christ to come into your life by praying a prayer for salvation and brighten your path, make His light shine in your heart so you will know the pure, holy, righteous and just God.
I pray that His light would shine in your ways and brighten your path to life. May His face shine upon you and as you seek for more of Him, you will find Him. In Jesus name, Amen
