Key Word: Let there be LIGHT! Genesis 1:3
Let there be light! This is the first recorded statement God made in the bible, but truthfully God must have been speaking from all eternity and beautifully creating His complex universe. But for us on earth, this is God’s first word and remains the first law of solving every conundrum and every enigma. The problem of mankind is not money, fame, sex, power, glory or anything else that has been packaged and concocted by the chicanery of men to deceive people. The greatest need of man is LIGHT! Pure and simple. Light.
Without light, simple things become very complex. Without light, fear thrives. Without light, evil broods and lurks and the insidious flourishes. Without light men go into hiding. Without light, disease spreads. Without light men die. Light is the first and primary need of man.
The first chapter of the book of John states it so succinctly:
1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 He was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. 4 In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. 5 And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not [a]comprehend it.
John’s Witness: The True Light
6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. 7 This man came for a witness, to bear witness of the Light, that all through him might believe. 8 He was not that Light, but was sent to bear witness of that Light. 9 That[b] was the true Light which gives light to every man coming into the world.
10 He was in the world, and the world was made through Him, and the world did not know Him. 11 He came to His [c]own, and His [d]own did not receive Him. 12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the [e]right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name:
Light is a person. Yes a PERSON. His name is Jesus. He is the true LIGHT that gives light to all men. 1 John 1:5 tells us that ‘God is LIGHT’. So any life without this Light is a live in darkness and a life that is a habitation for all types of evil and ugly manifestations.
Is it any surprise then that when God was going to begin the process of creating an ordered world from a disorderly and chaotic state, a state of nothingness or without shape or order, He began by releasing light!
Consequently, anyone who wants to have an ordered life, a meaningful life, a beautiful life and a purposeful life must start with the reception of the LIGHT! This is the first step. Receive the Light of Life. Receive Jesus Christ, His incarnation, His sinlessness, His atoning death and His glorious resurrection and then you will have the light that will help you to know the next steps.
Today I declare over you, Let there be LIGHT!
Let us pray: Heavenly Father, You are a God of design and order. Your patterns are clear to all who desire to know. Today, please grant me Your Light. I believe that Jesus Christ Your only begotten Son, came to the earth as a man, lived a sinless life, died the death of a sinner and rose from the dead. I believe He did all these for me, so my sins can be forgiven and I can have eternal life. Today I ask for Jesus to come into my life and save me. I put my trust in Him and Him alone. My your Light shine in me now and forever more. Amen.
