Today’s Inspiration Station With Rhonnie Scheuerman
God said “Let there be light”. And so light appeared.
God saw how good the light was….Genesis 1:3-4
Author Dianne Neal Matthers: I’ve never liked the dark as a little girl, I often lay in bed at night with my imagination running wild. I visualized all sorts of scary things lurking around me. May be that explains why I love that God’s first command during the creation of the world called for light. He commanded light to shine and then separated it from the darkness. One day God fashioned the sun, moon, and stars to light up the sky and divide day and night.
Later, Jesus arrived on the scene and lit up the world in a new way. He proclaimed, I am the light of the world. Who ever follows me will have a life filled with light and will never live in the dark ” (John 8:12,). Jesus offered love, grace, and truth to people living in the darkness of sin and fear of death.
Jesus also said that those who follow Him are to let their light shine for others to see’ If I claim to know him people should see something distinctive and the difference my behavior in my conversation, and my life. My character should demonstrate the difference between living for Jesus and living apart from Him-A difference as big as day and night.
These days I typically wake up way too early, sometimes two hours or more before dawn. As I wait for the sun’s rays to chase away the darkness of night. I feel thankful that God created the lights in my heavens. And during troubled times in my life, I’m grateful for the light who lives in me. I know His light is great enough to help me find my way through any darkness.
But I trust in your unfailing love, my heart rejoices in your salvation. Psalm 13:5
