“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. The earth was without form and void, and darkness was over the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters. And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day” (Genesis 1:1).
You cannot learn who you are or why you exist, until you know and truly understand who God is, I mean who He really is – God of the universe, God of love, God of purpose. God did not need to create the universe. He made a choice to create the universe because He loves you. God is love and you are a reflection of His love. When He said, “let there be light,” He opened up the heavens and illuminated His love creating an environment and creating you to fulfill the purpose and plan He has for you.
God’s creation of the universe and His creation of you; should impart the following:
Originality – He is the source from which you have been formed, when He created you, He broke the mold, there is no one like Him, there is no one like you. You were created in His image and likeness.
Distinction – He is in a realm all by himself. He may be imitated, but He can never be duplicated. As with you, you have to remember you are in a class all by yourself. You are set apart, a chosen generation. He separated you from darkness, protected you from the evil spirits of the world because He loves you.
Value – He is worthy and you are worthy. Recognize that you matter. You were born on purpose, with purpose, for purpose.
Prominence – He stands out above all the rest. He is the light in the midst of darkness. You stand out because He has created you to be the light in the midst of darkness. Come out of the dark places, NO MORE negativity, guilt, shame and condemnation. You are the light!
In the G.A.P.
- In your own words, what does it mean to be the light?
- In what ways are you the light?
- In what ways or areas in your life, do you need to remove negativity, fear, guilt, shame or condemnation, keeping you from being the light?
Decree and Declare that “I am the light and I will shine my light for the world to see, as my God has done for me! I will let go of the negativity, fear, guilt, shame, condemnation, for they no longer bound me. I am loosed from darkness, because I am the light and my God loves me! I AM the LIGHT!”
Dear Heavenly Father, I thank you for creating me to be the light. As day fills the earth, continue to fill me with your Holy light. May my life mirror my love for you. May I seek to fulfill purpose according to your will. Allow my light to shine upon those in dark places. Use me Lord to ignite the hearts and minds of those lost without you! I ask this in your precious Son, Jesus’ name, AMEN.
