Being Brilliant Light

Interesting scripture reading this morning. Isaiah 30:26.

The light of the moon will be as the light of the sun, and the light of the sun will be seven times brighter, like the light of seven days, on the day the Lord binds up the fracture of HIs people and heals the bruise He has inflicted.”

Fracture, echoes that we are all broken or fractured as we go through lives events, circumstances and situation. Stuff happens. It’s inevitable that we are going to get hurt. Then what do we do in our wounded state? Many are the things people try to soothe the pain within themselves. Sometimes a temporary relief of the pain comes. It may take some time. Some wounds may last a lifetime. There is a power and love greater than ourselves. Jesus who loves the brokenhearted. The Lord is our healer. He heals the wounds inflicted by our disobedience, sin, other peoples sin and iniquity. He has not left us alone or without remedy.

The Church in the world is made up of people. Many of those people still carry untreated wounds. Many are still fractured even though they “know” Jesus as Savior. Do they know Him as healer of their whole heart? Do they let Him heal their wounds of their spirit and hearts? Some do yes. Many still are struggling - often looking in other places for their healing.

As the Church is healed person by person God’s glory and splendor is revealed through the release of the darkness within them that lodges in their wounds and hurts. A healed heart has God’s love and light in it. That draws others to the light.

John 8:12 - Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”

There is nothing like a bright, sunny day to bring hope to our spirits. Light makes things clearer. Yes, as we let more of the Light of Jesus shine in our hearts it exposes dark things in us. Just like light on what you are reading God’s light brings the answer to those dark areas. As we admit them, ask Him for forgiveness and allow Him to take it away- whatever it might be He releases us, frees us from that pressure or bondage. Yes, there is a price we pay. But it is SO worth it.

The price of confession, forgiveness, repentance, condemnation, criticalness, shame, control and humility to name a few. As we recognize we need help it is easier to let go of those things.

He desires to flood us with the warmth of His light. In His light we see who we really are. Sons and Daughters of Mighty God, King of Kings. Notice the difference in our vision after we give up to Jesus the deceptive views of the enemy. Don't miss this powerful insight.So valuable to Him He sent Jesus to die for our sins so we could be totally reconciled to Him. He doesn’t stop there. He wants an ongoing relationship with us. A two way street, two way conversation relationship with us.

John 4:23-24-God is a spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.”

As our hearts are cleansed and receive the truth of who we are, we become a reflection of our Father. Like Father like Son. Just like Jesus who is our example. When we come out of the dark into Jesus’ light we find He accepts us as we are, loves us and heals us. It is then we know and experience Him. The brilliance of God is irresistible.He doesn’t condemn us. Rant at us. He already knows what’s in our hearts anyway. Still He wants us. He will never leave us. Loves us unconditionally. Truly. Now that is a love that is irresistible.

Philippians 2:14-15

“Do all things without grumbling or disputing; so that you will prove yourselves to be blameless and innocent, children of God above reproach in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you appear as lights in the world.”

The Church is to be the Light of the World. A light on a hill. A light in a dark place. Light that draws others to the source of that Light. Jesus.

The Church must get in the right condition to be the light of the world. Out with the infections of the soul and spirit and in with the light comes the love of Jesus. Seven times brighter on the day the Lord binds up a fracture of His people and their wounds. Jesus who cures our hearts of ALL. As God’s wonderful people truly let go and let God shine through them many in the world will be drawn to our God. Now there is something to think on. How worth the price each individual pays. Be filled with the Love of God.

Nothing is Impossible with God.
