God has perfect timing. You and I are here for purpose, His purpose. It does not matter that I may see that I have squandered the last 49 years not being a light to those who need it. Why? Because God uses everything in our lives up to today and the days ahead, no matter where we are in our walk with God.
This day is made for you and me to be a light. He is teaching me to do, as Philippians 2:14-16 says “Do everything without complaining or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, children of God without fault in a crooked and depraved generation, in which you shine like stars in the universe as you hold out the word of life–in order that I may boast on the day of Christ that I did not run or labor for nothing.”
It is extremely hard if you are living each day by your own strength and not by God’s. But He gives us His Word to stand on and that is to be our strength.
He wants us blameless. This takes work! Strength training each day….and I guarantee when you get serious with the Lord and what He commands He will give you sessions/workouts in strength training yourself in the department of complaining and arguing…..for that matter, any area of your life that you need God in!
This day was created for you to shine in the universe! Each day we are living calls for us to be a light to those around us.
Let us start today and the coming days putting to practice what God is revealing so that we can shine for those around us that are grieving, that have lost hope or have never known what hope or faith look like. It may be that you give a silent prayer, that you “hold out the word of life”, it may be a gentle smile, it may be something else the Holy Spirit is bringing to your attention, respond and act as you need to.
