fan ablaze the flame,
The gift in you,
the divine endowment in you,
the treasure of darkness in you.
Creation is eagerly waiting for you.
Discover, develop and deploy
The gem God has placed in you.
Pursue your purpose passionately.
Leave no stones unturned
Use well your talent and gain some more.
Be like the servant with five talents,.
Redeem the time.
Be fervent in spirit
Sleeping giant awake!
Take the bull by the horn.
Refuse to take no for an answer.
You have got what it takes to win.
19 For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.
13 Ye are the salt of the earth: but if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted? it is thenceforth good for nothing, but to be cast out, and to be trodden under foot of men.
14 Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.
15 Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.
16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.Matt5:13-16
11 Not slothful in business; fervent in spirit; serving the Lord; Rom12:11
8 For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give thee light.
15 See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise,
16 Redeeming the time, because the days are evil.
17 Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is.
As the Light of this World…
You are a Light of this world. I created you in My image. I made you a partaker of My divine nature through your knowledge of Me. I made you an inheritor of My exceeding great and precious promises.
I lit your light, translating you from the Kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of light, to radiate My glory and brightness wherever you go and regardless of the circumstances.
You are the light of this world. As I am, so you are in this world. Yes, you are in this world, but you are not of this world.
Therefore let your light so shine in darkness that men will see your good works and glorify Me.
Refuse to be conformed to this world or be shaped into its mould. Know that you are different and called to made a remarkable difference. So Make make your mark; make your calling an election sure; make an indelible mark, because of My life in your life and the power of the Holy Spirit and My Word in you, that is Spirit and life.
The darker the night or darkness, the brighter your light should shine. Be not overcome with evil, but overcome evil with good. By this shall all men know that you are my disciple, my ambassador and my minister. And when you are hard-pressed on all sides know that just as hard pressure on carbon produces diamond, your diamond is in the offing. Know that you know, that you know, you will not be crushed, because greater is He that is you than he that is in this world. Know that your life is hidden in Christ in God. Know that you are the apple of My eyes and whoever touches you touches Me. Know that angelic hosts are on an assignment on your behalf.
When men are saying, “There is depression, there is inflation, there is recession, stagnation, even retrogression,” you will be saying, like Joshua and Caleb,” These circumstances will be bread to me, There is promotion, there is opportunity, there is favour, there is advantage, there is revelation, there is insight and advancement.” You shall not say what you see in the physical realm or how you feel, but what you see in the spirit realm. You will say what you hear Me say and see me say. And you will do what you see Me do. You will take steps of Faith to please Me. The just shall live by faith. You will walk by faith and not sight. You shall decree a thing and it shall be established. You will command as a king and see it come to pass. You will take your rightful place and exercise dominion because all things are yours and you are my heir and a joint heir with Christ. You hail from above. You are a son of God.
You are a Light of this world. Rejoice when you are persecuted like the saints of old. Be glad when you are counted worthy to partake of My sufferings. You will also partake in my glory. For the Suffering of this present life cannot be compared to the glory that is coming to you. So be steadfast and immovable, knowing that I am for you, in you and with you. Say, to yourself, “This fire will refine and fine-tune me to come forth like gold and be more like my Master.
” I refuse to look at that which is seen. For the things I see are temporary. I look at the unseen realities. Because the things which are seen are temporary, but the things unseen are eternal.”
You are a Light of this World. Give warmth, energy, and exude joy, peace, love, healing kindness, self-control and generosity. Give hope to the hopeless. Be an instrument of peace and reconciliation.
As the light of the world, Speak words of healing, hope, health; light, life, love; promotion, progression and possibility. Treasure My Word like Job did. Acquaint yourself with Me like he did. And good will always come to you and from you. Then you will lay up gold as dust. Out of darkness, your light will blaze forth with power like a sun. No one can quench your light. No one can contain you. No one can stop you.
You are the salt of the earth. You are commissioned to give flavour wherever you go. Let your steps be ordered to bring good news. Your testimonies shall lift others and birth other testimonies.
You are for seasoning, to make things taste good, delicious, sumptuous and mouth-watering. Make other people’s stories taste great and wonderful. Give meaning to other people’s lives. Be a sources of good news, a harbinger of joy unspeakable and full of glory.
As salt of the earth be a sanitiser, refresher and restorer. Be Medicinal. Bring a solution and cure to incurable situations. Be a Solution Centre. You are My hands and my feet and my Voice. Go to the nooks and crannies, byways and highways. Be not ashamed of the gospel. It is My power to save, deliver, keep against that day. And as you open your mouth I will fill it with words of life, words of wisdom, words of divine Direction.
You are are a city on a hill. Your greatness and magnificent edifice cannot be hidden. No one can muzzle or emasculate you. Dominate the “skyline” in your world. You are a lighthouse to point people to Me. Those who are wise and lead many to righteousness shall shine as stars. They know their God and they do great exploits. They redeem the time, knowing that the day is far spent and the night comes when no man can work.
As light shine like Daniel and his friends in a foreign land. Distinguish yourself as they did. Devote yourself as they did. Refuse to bow to the golden images of this world as they did. And I will promote you and elevate you and honour you and make you ten times better than your compatriots. You will be head-hunted, sought after as a gem. You will stand before Kings and not mere men because of your excellence, virtuosity and distinction. You will be brought into places of leadership where you will shine even more to my glory. Every opposition you face will bring promotion like Joseph’s opposition brought promotion. And those who do not believe will see signs and wonders that will cause them to give glory to your Maker, just like the pagan King did in Daniel’s time. You will not fear any evil or furnace heated seven times hotter than usual into which you are thrown. The fire will set you free to fulfill vision. I will make a banquet for you even in the presence of your enemies. Out of any darkness, I will bring forth light. Persecution will bring promotion. Opposition will bring progression, just like the gospel was spread further as the disciples were dispersed from persecution. Nothing can stop you. Your light affliction which is but for a moment will be working for you an exceeding weight of eternal glory. Because all things work together for good to those who love Me and are the called according to purpose.
You are a Light of this World. Empower wherever you go. Enhance, improve wherever you go. Multiply and replenish wherever you go. Have dominion, bring increment, advancement and improvement. Bring creativity and innovation from the insight you receive from My Spirit. See cash where others see trash. See beauty where others see dungeon. See glory where others see ashes and the gory.
As the light of the world, bring synergy beyond energy. Know when and where to collaborate with others of like precious faith to trigger synergy, knowing that 1 shall put 1000 to flight and 2 shall put 10,000 to flight.
As the light of the World, know that you are born for signs and wonders. You are a tree of righteousness destined to become a forest. As you go in My name I will go before you to make crooked places straight. I will confirm My words with signs following. Your presence will be a sign of good things to come. And as you take steps of Faith, there will be signs and wonders. You will change the decrees of Kings like Shadrach, Meshach and Abed-nego.
As the light of this world, you are for seasons wherever you go. You determine the season. You will determine the “spiritual temperature.” Where there was a season of struggle, storm and turmoil, you will bring a season of ease, calmness and peace.
Where there was a season of pain you will bring a season of relief, healing and health. Wherever there was a season of doubt, unbelief and fear, you will bring a season of hope, Faith and assurance.
Where there was lack, you will bring a season of plenty, generosity, liberality and this will spread like wildfire and snowball all around. And My Name shall be glorified.
