As I was driving home this morning, I kept seeing flashes of light. I looked up the definition of flash and found an example to say “to cause to flash by a sword by waving.” All I could think about was our angel armies fighting and I was seeing flashes from their swords…I also reflected on my ability to cause flashes as I was fighting off the enemy with the sword of Truth!
Then, I focused on the word “light.” We are to let our lights shine before others so they may see our good words and glorify God (Matthew 5:16) came to mind. What that means to me is because of what He’s done in and through me, other’s will be drawn to Him! I had to ask myself: “What kind of a testimony am I living? What in my life still needs refined?”
Next, I began seeking scriptures with the word light and discovered angels and stars are referred to as lights. “Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights” (James 1:17). How amazing is it that He is giving me a glimpse of what it’s like to see in the spiritual realm!
Finally…I read Luke 17:24 says “for the Son of Man in his day will be like the lightning, which flashes and lights up the sky from one end to the other.” I believe the Lord was also reminding me of the urgency of my calling as a team member with TTR, as the time is drawing near! Yes, I will anticipate His coming all the more…but it makes me want to assure I will be doing everything I can, through Him, to bring as many others with me so they too can experience His glory and eternal life!
