DAY 5 THURSDAY: JULY 2018

LIGHT IS THE SYMBOL OF TRUTH!

Then God made two great lights: the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night. He made the stars also (Genesis 1:16).

In the Scripture, light is the symbol of truth. Whenever light is mentioned in the Bible, it represents truth of God’s Word. The Bible says in John 1:9, “That was the true light which gives light to every man coming into the world.” According to our opening text, it made reference to two great lights: the greater light and the lesser light. Of course, the truth of God’s Word varies; there is the greater truth and there is also the lesser truth. In fact, the truth of God’s revelation does not rank equally; hence, some are of greater dimension than the others. But as Christians, we should always desire to function in the greater dimension of the truth of God’s Word.

The Scripture tells us in His Word that as Christians, we can actually live in divine health, security and prosperity. These are greater truth that can rule our lives for success and breakthrough. God wants us to believe in His Word and live a life of victory. This is the reason Apostle John the beloved says, “Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in all things and be in health, just as your soul prospers” (3 John 1:2). Living in divine health, security and prosperity is the greater truth of God’s Word to every Christian. It is our duty as Christians to take our stand in God’s Word and proclaim His greater truth for us by faith.

Although, it is also true that Christian should desire healing, deliverance and struggle in hardship; but this is a lesser truth. As Christians, we should desire the greater truth and live like conquerors because that is what we are in Christ Jesus (Romans 8:37). Healing and deliverance is the children’s bread (Matthew 15:26); but God wants us to be spiritually matured and live like full grown Christians. Therefore, we should put our faith into practice and function in the greater truth of God’s Word which is the light of men.

Daily Tip: Function in the greater truth because it is more potent and stronger than the lesser truth. Shalom!

Golden Text: Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not work in darkness, but have the light of life” (John 8:12).
