SERMON Open Heaven Devotional – 25 January 2022 | Let There Be Light (9)
“Let there be light” could mean, “Lord, after you have shown me the solution to my problem, teach me how to help others also” or simply “Lord, use me for Your glory”. A life that does not serve a divine purpose is a wasted life and would have no recompense in the hereafter. Jesus Christ clearly said:
And, behold, I come quickly, and my reward is with me, to give every man according as his work shall be. – (Revelation 22:12)
The reason we were not taken to heaven the very day we gave our lives to Christ is so that we may be useful and not only serve the purpose of our creation and redemption, but be handsomely rewarded by our Father in heaven. When darkness fills a person’s life, such a fellow will lead a purposeless and unprofitable life. A lesson we must learn from Prophet Isaiah in our Bible reading today is that the moment the light of God shone upon him and he was shown his imperfection by God’s grace, he surrendered himself to be used of God.
Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me. – (Isaiah 6:8).
Joseph is another classic example of someone who, after the light of God shone upon him, served God’s purpose for his life consciously. Like Joseph, all children of God must seek to discover His unique purpose for their lives and pursue it vigorously (Genesis 50:19-20).
Beloved, when the light of God shines upon your life, you will see the importance of Mark 16:17,18 and you will earnestly pray for the fulfilment of the Lord’s promise in Acts 1:8 over your life.
God has already prepared a glorious future ahead for all His children through Christ (Colossians 1:27). Ensure you do not miss out on this by yielding your life entirely over to the Light-Jesus Christ and live according to His purpose for your life.
God bless you.
