There's something wonderful about the connection between early mornings and revelation. Noon, evening and night, I promise I have nothing against you. Yes, I love the sweet smell of the evening breeeze in summer. But there's something beautiful about rising up early in the morning...to new joys, new freedom, new lyrics, new warmth, new air, and new feelings. Nothing beats the early morning sun.
So yesterday, it was not sheer coincidence when I rose up to the first rays of light, opened the timeless book of all time, and read about the true light. The first time God said "Let there be light," did you know He wasn't referring to the sun, moon, or stars? I found out later that He commanded these other lights into existence at a later verse. Therefore, the revelation I got about the first time God spoke light into existence was that He commanded His being into the earth. God Himself is LIGHT, and no darkness can overcome Him. Even if the sun, moon, and stars were to fade away, God's light will still remain. Oh, what manner of God is this?
But people, we have a task on this earth. More than 2000 years ago, Jesus came again to command God's light into existence. On one of the days when He spoke to the crowds He said, "Ye are the light of the world." He was referring to all of us...the heirs to the throne. He was talking about me and you. Yes, even you. Why? Because if God made us in His own image, and if He is Light and the giver of Light, then there must be light inside you as well.
Where's your light? Your light is that thing that you do that makes everything else fade away. Your light is in your smile and your beauty. Your light is what overcomes the darkness threatening every inch of your life. Your light is powerful, bringing damage to hell. Your light is what shines even when you feel all is lost. Your light is in your relentless spirit, that you will never stop pushing until your very last drop of sweat. Your light is the very thing that makes you different from everybody else.
Your light is not dependent on the sun, moon, and stars. It is dependent on the revelation of who you are. When you find out who you really are, you must walk in this new revelation. You were not created to be like your friends or family. You were created in another dimension of God's image. You are the multiplication of the diverse image of God.
I am excited that I am created in His image, yet in a diverse form of His image that makes me different from everyone else. I'm excited at the new things He's done in my life (last post). I know He did it for a specific purpose...so that I will shine in the midst of darkness. Yes, so that the world will stop groaning for the manifestations of the sons of God, and start seeing those manifestations. Don't be part of those groaning and waiting, the manifestations are already here. YOU are a manifestation. Don't look in front of you or behind you. Look at yourself. Look at your light
PS: I'll be attending the Forward 08 conference in Atlanta on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. I look forward to meeting inspiring worshippers such as Chris Tomlin, Delirious, and Jeremy Camp...people who worship God with all of their might. I look forward to recording wonderful things that God will do in my journal and possibly relating these details on the Lamp. Until then...love u guys! Mwah!
