“I, the LORD, have called you in righteousness; I will take hold of your hand. I will keep you and will make you to be a covenant for the people and a light for the Gentiles, to open eyes that are blind, to free captives from prison and to release from the dungeon those who sit in darkness.”
- Isaiah 42:6-7
When you gave your heart to The Lord, He put His light within you. If that light remains in you, shining into every corner of your heart, filling you with more knowledge and experience of God and His love for you, then it will be worth God putting it there and God will be delighted with you. However, it could do so much more!
That light within you has the ability to bring hope, to
break chains, to heal sickness, to bring freedom, to bring reconciliation. These verses are an invitation to you. God does not need us in order to do His will, but what an
honour and a privilege that He wants to partner with us to do it. What do you care about? What do you want to see changed in this world? No matter what it is, how big, scary or impossible it may seem, go after it! Go for it! Christ, the hope and the answer to this broken world lives within you! And remember that the verse says, “I will take hold of your hand” - you do not go alone, God is with you, holding your hand, cheering you on. Never underestimate what you carry and what is possible when you step out.
Lord, thank you for putting your light within me & inviting me to partner with You. Help me to see the opportunities to share your light with others and give me courage, wisdom and the words when the time comes. Amen.
Write down the names of three people or three situations where the light and hope of Jesus is needed. Commit to praying for all 3 daily and pray for opportunities to share the light of Jesus too, then get ready to grab God’s hand and take the opportunities as they come!
