Morning by Morning, August 11 - Revealing "All that is Good and Right and True"
Good morning, Lord Jesus. I want to begin my day seeking Your face, embracing Your Presence, and waiting for Your leading -- Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. ...
"Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes on those who are disobedient. Therefore do not be associated with them. For once you were darkness, but now in the Lord you are light. Live as children of light -- for the fruit of the light is found in all that is good and right and true. Try to find out what is pleasing to the Lord. Take no part in the unfruitful works of darkness, but instead expose them. For it is shameful even to mention what such people do secretly; but everything exposed by the light becomes visible, for everything that becomes visible is light" (Ephesians 5:6-14).
In Your light, darkness cannot hide. In Your light, the darkness of distortions and lies are exposed. And in Your light, "all that is good and right and true" is reveled.
Shine the Your light of Your truth in my heart first. "Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my thoughts. See if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting" (Psalm 139:23-24). And then with clean hands and a pure heart that comes through the repentance of a humble heart before You, Your light shines through us to expose the darkness around us. You "turn the darkness before (us) into light" (Isaiah 42:16). "(Your) light shines in the darkness, and the darkness (cannot) overcome it" (John 1:5).
When our hearts are in Your hands and Your truth abides in our lives, wherever we are, we bring Your light into that place -- into our homes, into our workplace, into our schools, into our courtrooms, into every place where You send us and position us to expose the darkness and reveals the light. The light of the kingdom of God arises and shines because the light of the kingdom of God arises upon us and shines through us (Isaiah 60:1; Luke 17:21). In You, "(We) are the light of the world" because the Light of the world is in us" (Matthew 5:14). Come shine the light of Your truth through me today. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays
Tommy, I pray the light of God's truth will shine through you everywhere the Lord's sends you and positions you each day, revealing all that is good and right and true through you, in Jesus' name. Please pray the same for me. God bless you, my friend!
Friends, please continue to join with me in prayer for a close friend of mine and his family, as he continues to go through his trial this week. Thank you so much for all who were praying for me yesterday as I was available as a witness but not called at this stage. I did get to witness the light of truth being revealed and many distortions and lies being exposed, as my friend is being exonerated. Please continue to join with me to press through in prayer until the end for him and his family. By the grace of God, this trial seems to be going exceptionally well, with more truth being revealed every day. We pray for clarity, discernment, that all things be exposed in the light of the truth, that the judge and jury may discern and judge rightly, as well as for the favor and mercy of the Lord for my friend and his family. And may God cause all of this to work together for good. We trust that the battle is won in the Spirit, as we pray for it to be manifested on earth as it is in heaven. God bless you!
