SCRIPTURE READING: MATTHEW 5: 14-16
FOCUS: “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid.” (Matthew 5: 14)
MEMORY VERSE: “Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.” (John 8: 12)
In our Focal Scripture, Jesus proclaimed that we are the light of the world. Jesus made mentioned of light that will light up the entire world. Notice that in Genesis 1, when the light bodies were created, God Himself set them in the firmament of the heaven, to give light to the entire earth. The light that was to give light to the entire earth, was positioned by the hand of God. Put differently, the hand of God helped the lights to shine to the world.
Friend, hear me as I hear the Lord: in 2023, you are that light that will shine by the hand of the Lord. You are a global light. You are that light that will shine beyond your city and nation. You are that light that will shine because Jehovah is involved. You are that light that will shine by the orchestration of divinity. You are that light that will shine supernaturally. You are that light that will shine beyond the calculations and expectations of men.
When a man becomes the light of the world, no single person can boast of empowering him to shine. When God is the foundation of your shining, no circumstance can dim your light. Hear me as I hear the Lord: you are that light that will not go dim. You are that light that will not be blown off. You are that light that will not be cut short. You are that light that will not expire in time. You are that light that will shine, shine and shine.
There are lights that are made for the house, and there are some for the city; but you are that light that was made for global recognition. You are that light that was made to shine and show forth the glory of God to your entire generation. Let the mantle for global visibility come upon you. Let the mantle of global recognition come upon you. Let the power to go global come upon you. Let the mandate of global greatness come upon you.
Don’t be counted amongst the global lights that preferred to play local. Arise, take your place in the firmament, and shine to your generation.
