I have remained somewhat silent lately in regards to my blog and social media. I have so much to say and yet it has discouraged me to find that my words fall on deaf ears. I went to my phone this morning and read….
These are various alerts that have been set to remind me to let my light shine. What light? The light of Christ in me. Jesus came into my life and changed me. Anyone who knew me before would say that I’m not the same.
But I have been wrestling to let my light shine. The resistance has been intense and strong. The battle has been long. If people could see what I see and know the God I know, they would have hope. Where there is no divine revelation from God, people cast off restraint and go wild. Where there is no hope, the people perish.
So today I’m taking the steps God is asking me to take. I’m letting my light shine. God is good and He has been good to me. This world and everything in it is passing away. The enemy of my soul has persistently done everything he can to silence my voice. The kindest thing the Lord ever did for me was give me a voice. Even if He is the only one who ever listens, even if the Lord is the only one who ever hears, I will confess with my mouth that Jesus is Lord.
If I could give one bit of advice that I wanted people to hear today it would be this:
Turn to God, seek Him with all your heart. He is kind. He is merciful. He is love. Dare to believe that God is good and that He loves you. Jesus is real.
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.” Ephesians 6:12
“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” Hebrews 11:1
Dear God, Please open people’s eyes. Help them to see the truth. In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen! I love you! Love, Alison
