Are We Being The Light?

You are sitting at your workplace and it’s just that type of day.  All the cuss words are coming to your head, all the negative actions you want to take, and basically acts like everything but a child of God.

You’re at a store and the cashier is performing so slowwwww.   You want to entertain murmur.  You want to sigh in hope he/she would pick up the pace.  You even what to let it be known that you just rolled your eyes.

It’s your dwelling place.  Yet there’s everything but a sense of freedom this particular day.   The kids are running around acting like they have no sense.  The spouse is sounding like they’re nagging more than talking.  Even the dog is driving you crazy.

It’s all a part of our daily lives, right?

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.  Matthew 5:16

For Zion’s sake will I not hold my peace, and for Jerusalem’s sake I will not rest, until the righteousness thereof go forth as brightness, and the salvation thereof as a lamp that burns.  Isaiah 62:1

The truth is that it’s in those moments we can choose to let our light outshine the darkness.  We can choose to react in the flesh or walk in the spirit.   We are called to be the light, yet are we making the choice to be it?

OR OLAM – everlasting light.

See our God is light and if we claim to dwell in Him that makes us the light as well.  So whether it’s at work, chores, or even at home; let us be that light that outshines the darkness.  Let us be the light that overtakes the atmosphere.  Remember in all things, we always have a choice!  Why not decide in those times to give Him glory.
