Thoughts of Devotion:

Today we are called to be lights in a dark world. In times when many people walk without direction or purpose, we are different! In Philippians 2:15 he tells us, “that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world.” What a blessing we have to be light in the midst of darkness. Many in this world will walk blindly, but we will walk in the light knowing the way that we must follow in 2016.

There is a an assurance in us that our path this year is well lit by the Lord. There is no room for confusion or darkness in our lives! The Lord is working in our behalf, and we will see all that he has planned for our lives. In 1 John 3: 2 says, “Beloved, now we are children of God, and has not yet been revealed what we shall be: but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, for we shall see him as he is.” Every day we walk in the light we see His plans and will in us fulfilled. His work is certain, and surely we will see the fulfillment of his great plans in 2016.

We will not reduce, or even dim in our walk with the Lord, on the contrary we will be like sunlight and shine the glory of God in our lives more and more every day. We go from glory to glory, from strength to strength to do all that God promised each of us. Let us rejoice because a new day is coming into our lives, and the best is still yet to come!

In Proverbs 4:18, it reminds us once more, “But the path of the just is like the shining sun, That shines ever brighter unto the perfect day.” We still have more to come, more of his power, more of his glory revealed in us. Our most glorious days are not in our past, on the contrary they are ahead of us in 2016.

Job 11:17 (NKJV) — 17 And your life would be brighter than noonday. Though you were dark, you would be like the morning.

Philippians 2:15 (NKJV) — 15 that you may become blameless and harmless, children of God without fault in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world,

Matthew 5:14 (NKJV) — 14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.

Matthew 13:43 (NKJV) — 43 Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!
