IAM a Light

PSA 18:28 NLT You light a lamp for me. The lord , my God, lights up my darkness.

God is our light.
He is the faithful parent that keeps the light on, so we can find our way home.

Light is such a strong force that can bring clarity to all situations, and also be a guidance to us , when we have lost our way.

The Lord, My God, lights up my darkness.
God takes the darkest deepest parts of our character and being, and lights it up.

I think that those parts of my heart and life that are unworthy, are the things holding me back.
And unconfessed they are the sins that keep me from God.

I want to allow God to shine his light on them, heal me, and then transform them into my greatest strength

The world wants us to cover things up.
To fake it and smile and act as if nothing is wrong.
Who are we kidding?  God knows us.  God knows our heart, and he wants to shine his light into the darkness of our souls, and bring life

For me personally, my first instinct is to feel unworthy.  When, I make mistakes, or lose my temper, or fall short.
I want to beat myself up, and have a nice little pity party for myself.  And then solve those pains in my soul with the things of this world.

But I know, that’s the path to depression and seclusion.
God’s way is confession, and 100% reliance on Him. To bring it into the Light

GEN 15:2-5 NLT But Abram replied, “O Sovereign lord , what good are all your blessings when I don’t even have a son? Since you’ve given me no children, Eliezer of Damascus, a servant in my household, will inherit all my wealth. You have given me no descendants of my own, so one of my servants will be my heir.” Then the lord said to him, “No, your servant will not be your heir, for you will have a son of your own who will be your heir.” Then the lord took Abram outside and said to him, “Look up into the sky and count the stars if you can. That’s how many descendants you will have!”

When I think about the dialogue between God and Abram
It sounds like me.

God, I don’t have this,  I don’t have that.  I am lacking in this.
God , i have your blessings , but what good are they, when I don’t even have a son?

Sounds like some whining to me.

Then the Lord says very clearly. The one thing you are using as an excuse, as a crutch. I will answer it.

You WILL have a son!
And just to show you I am an awesome God!
Your descendants from that one son, will be in number like the stars in the sky.
And today , if we were to do a population count of the people of the 12 tribes of Israel. I think we go clearly over the 1 million mark.

It’s funny how the themes of these posts seem to come back to the same message everyday
1. Stop focusing on what you are NOT
2. Start proclaiming what you ARE.
3. The greatest weakness you have, is exactly the area that God wants to use in you to become the greatest victory!

IAM strong in my greatest weakness
IAM holding strong to God’s promises

Day 2 of our corporate fast.
Let the hunger pangs and desires, push you towards God.
Can we hunger and thirst for God like I hunger for a nice juicy piece of chicken right now?
Can we hunger and thirst for Righteousness like a tall refreshing ice coffee?
The more the appetite and flesh wants the things of this world.
Ask the Holy Spirit to come and fully inhabit you.  To permanently make a home inside of you.

I truly am asking in faith , that during these 14 days, God to heal the deep inner places of my heart.
I am asking God for major major transformation inside of me.
I am asking God to transform my weaknesses into major strength
So that I can shine His light for others to see as well!
