Today I rejoice in the beginning of a new series of reflections entitled “Walks in Sonshine.” I personally can’t think of a better place to walk in life than in the warmth of the Son of the Father who laid down His life on a cross so that we could be forever rescued from the enemy of this world!!! Before Jesus came to this earth to take on His predetermined mission to rescue His people whom He loved, He had a forerunner to make Him known amongst people!!! The Word (the Bible) tells us:
There came a man sent from God, whose name was God-given and we are told in the Bible his name was called John. It is said that he came into the world with a purpose – a purpose to testify of the Light of the world. The Light being Jesus!!! He came into the world to testify to point others to Jesus – that means to be a witness of what he had seen, heard and knew. He was not the Light, but he came to testify about the Light that shines in the darkness of earth.
The thing that I love about this story is that Jesus our Creator is always a step ahead of us in His working!!! YYYEEESSS!!! JESUS KNOWS HOW TO SHINE A LIGHT TO HIS PEOPLE!!! OH THAT JUST MAKES ME SMILE TO THINK ABOUT HOW POWERFUL JESUS IS IN COMMUNICATING TO HIS PEOPLE AND PREPARING THE WAY FOR THEM TO HAVE VICTORY FOR THEMSELVES AND TO HELP THEM HELP OTHERS HAVE VICTORY!!! Before we get there to our divine spot in life to be, Jesus has already been there preparing for what is to come about!!! He tells us in His Word:
“For I know the plans that I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
Consider that perhaps Jesus is working thru you, dear saint and perhaps has worked thru you in the past, too as a forerunner to others being able to see the Light and its Source!!! John the Baptist stepped out to tell others who Jesus was and it forever blessed their lives because they knew He was their Savior that they needed to look to!!! Oh that just makes me smile to think about how they were blessed forever because one man stepped out to share what he had seen, heard and knew!!! As the Spirit of Jesus in you sets your heart ablaze with divine passion to share what you have seen, heard and know of Jesus, sweet saint, realize that you will give others the opportunity for forever rescue from darkness, too and in its place, give them eternal heavenly blessing, too!!! Jesus saw you before the beginning of time as a difference maker, just as He had John!!! How awesome that Jesus is working in YOU where you are to point others to LIGHT!!! He in you will be your LIGHTHOUSE TO SHOW YOU THE WAY TO THE SHORES OF HIS PURPOSE FOR YOU IN THIS LIFE AS THIS SONG SAYS HERE.
I am proud of you for stepping out as He guides you to make a forever difference!!! He believes in you and that is why He has created you with purpose where you are in this world to be light to testify to the LIGHT WHO LOVES US FOREVER AND HAS FOREVER VICTORY FOR US!!!
