LIFE LESSONS FROM THE BOOK OF PSALM 112:4
"Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness: he is gracious, and full of compassion, and righteous."
10 KEYS THAT WILL HELP YOU SEE YOUR LIGHT SHINE IN THE DARK .
1.Fervent prayers - Listen , your light doesn't just come like that without you praying hard and well for it , Amen . you still have a role to play in it . God said call upon me and I will answer . Jer 33:3 . Meaning what ? Someone has to do the calling , Amen . And that someone is you ! James 5:16b(NLT)"The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results.""
2.unwavering faith - Read again what bro Paul said in scripture Acts 20:24a " But none of these things move me" He was hardened in faith and at the end in the book of 2 Tim 4:7 he said " I have fought a good fight , I have finished my course , I have kept the faith ."
3.Revelational Knowledge - comes from deep meditation of God's word and with fervent prayers .Once you can see it ..wow o , God is bound to perform it . So in the dark once you see it "light" it will surely come to pass." surely" . Amen. Isaiah 48:3(NLT)"Long ago I told you what was going to happen. Then suddenly I took action, and all my predictions came true.""
4.Peace - For your light to shine in the dark , you need to use your weapon of peace .If you keep allowing your flesh to prevail , you will become frustrated and abandon what God is trying to do in your life .your peace is a weapon .Take full advantage of it . Amen.Job 22:21(NIV)"Submit to God and be at peace with him; in this way prosperity will come to you."
5.Joy - In the dark , it is only joy you can use to draw out the water (promises) from the well's of salvation . depression cannot do it . Why? you can only find His presence , when you choose to remain joyful in the dark . Psalm 16:11(ESV)"You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore."
6.Thanksgiving - you cannot over-look the power of thanksgiving . Why? In everything we have being commanded to give thanks . Why? permit me to translate this verse of scripture like this Romans 8:31 " If God the creator of the whole universe is on your side and willing to help you ? who can succeed against you ? which disease can hold you bound ? The power of thanksgiving will bring your light even faster .Psalm 50: 23(Amp)"He who offers a sacrifice of praise and thanksgiving honors Me;And to him who orders his way rightly [who follows the way that I show him],I shall show the salvation of God.”
7.Forgive - Is not wise to keep grudges in the dark , it leads to more pain and open the door for the enemy to enter . Let go and trust the Lord to act on your behalf , Amen.unforgiveness will block the light from coming . Heb 12:15(Amp)"Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;"
8.Love - your faith needs to find expression in the dark and the only way it can find expression is through love.Gal 5:10 (Amp)" For [if we are] in Christ Jesus neither circumcision nor uncircumcision means anything, but only faith activated and expressed and working through love."
9.Hold fast to your confession - In the dark , what you say can either quicken your light "glory" or delay it . Prov 13:13 (ESV)"Whoever despises the word brings destruction on himself, but he who reveres the commandment will be rewarded."
10. Mercy -Show mercy , whenever you have the opportunity . Is key , if you want God to show you His mercies in the dark .Matt 5:7(NIV)"Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy."
