IN THE LIGHT
For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk
as children of light. Eph
Lord Jesus has given me this burden to
share His work and the power of His Holy Spirit which is taking place
these days. Can anyone flee from His presence
(Psalms 139: 7); even
Adam and Eve couldn’t hide their nakedness from His presence.
the beginning itself I was experiencing the presence of Holy Spirit in our
ministry. In the beginning of year 2009, God gave a vision “To
Walk in the Light”. Now the time has come that people of God will
come out of darkness, out of wrong things, out of sin and addictions and walk
in the light.
this year in different areas of our ministry we saw the life of people
changing. Satan cannot destroy our life. Now the time has come that we
should go into the enemies’ camp and take back our happiness, peace,
healing, blessing and salvation which God had given to us in the name of
Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
God doesn’t want that we surrender our
life to Satan. Friends the victory belongs to us. And greater is He who is
inside us than that who is in the world. Believe me my Jesus will never
put you to shame. He
says in Matt 11:28 “Come unto me all ye that labor and heavy leaden, and
I will give you rest”. God
desires from you in this year that you should walk in the His light.
the end of this year I would like to question you, examine yourself that
where are you walking today? Many people are walking in wrong counsel,
walking in sins, walking in the worldly things. As it is written in Psalms 1:1 “Blessed is the man that walketh not in the counsel of the
ungodly”... At the end of this year the important moment has
come for us to take a very important decision in our life, where should I walk? Whether to walk in the darkness with Satan or
to walk in the light. Not only we should walk in the light but also make
others to walk in the light who are in the darkness. In the gospel of
Matthew from chapter 5 to 7 in which Jesus Christ gave the biggest sermon
on the mountain where he said very clearly and gave the aim of our life “You are the light of the
world” (Matt 5:4).
this year we need to take a decision that we will walk in the light and
also show light to others who are in the darkness. I remember a true story
of a man who’s name was Benjamin Franklin, who lived in a small city of
according to his plan he put a pillar in front of his house. Benjamin
Franklin was happy now that people will no more falls in the pot holes and
it happened so. People who passed that way saw the light coming from lamp
and because of that did not stumble and fall in the pot holes.
thing went on for few days and Benjamin Franklin was happy now. But
suddenly people started envying him and threw stones at the lamp and broke
it. But these things didn’t stop Benjamin Franklin he repaired the lamp
and put it back again. Again the people threw stones at the lamp and broke
it but Benjamin Franklin never gave up, he repaired the lamp again and
again and put it back. Now the heart of the people began to change, they
stopped throwing stones at the lamp. Within few days even the neighbors
liked this plan and they too started putting lamps in front of their own
houses. With in few days the street had light on the road and people from
other area started following the same and slowly the whole city of
Friends just think if one Benjamin Franklin can bring light in the whole world, in the same way you and I can do it; as Jesus said “You are the light of this world, like a city situated on the mountains cannot be hidden”. In the same way if we walk in the light and if we have the light within us then we will surely not be hidden. In coming days we will not be only walking in the light but lightening the lives of people who are in the darkness.
