SCRIPTURE: Consider and hear me, O LORD my God: lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death. Psalm 13:3
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: Light signals hope.
Sometime ago, I saw an experiment where some rabbits were put in a container that was open. Another group of rabbits were put in a container that was closed. They were all struggling to get out of those containers. It was discovered that within a short time, those rabbits in the closed container began to die in rapid succession because they could see no light. But those in the open container continued to struggle for freedom for a long time because as long as they could see light, they had hope.
Beloved, light signals hope. Our anchor scripture says, …lighten mine eyes, lest I sleep the sleep of death. That is, lighten my eyes so I can have life, so I can have hope. Light indeed signals hope. That is why when people are depressed, they live in darkness. Depressed people like dark places. As light bearers, we are the hope of our generation.
Sometime ago, some people told me, “We lost hope in our country, but when we saw you pray for the nation consistently, our hope was rekindled.”
Beloved, you are a hope giver, a hope distributor. You are the hope of your family, community, and nation. People who want to die should look at you and decide to live. When people are downcast, and they see you, they should become excited. Never exist in any realm other than that of the distribution of hope. That is why no Christian or pastor is licensed to be a negative prophecy giver. Prophecy comes for edification, exhortation, and comfort. And if anything negative is shown, it is shown so it can be nullified, and not to be prophesied. God revealed it so that you can reverse it. So, let all you do communicate hope, not despair.
REMEMBER THIS: Light signals hope.
- Consistently irrigate your hope by feeding your spirit man with God’s Word.
- Let your light shine in your generation.
- Let your speech be seasoned with hope always.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive the grace to shine, and transmit hope to my generation. Let men see my good works and glorify Your Name, Lord, in Jesus’ Name.
