Salt Shaker: Let Your Light Shine

Believers Are Salt and Light

13 “You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.

14 “You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.
( Matthew 5:13-16 NKJV )

We are in perilous times when our faith will be tested. Will you stand? Will you cower down and not say a word? Jesus is calling us out to keep our salt flavored and to use it; not to keep it covered or hidden. This is a mighty dark world we live in and it is not getting any better. Until our Savior comes back for us, be a light in the middle of darkness. Do not be ashamed and do not conform on any level.

HE’S NOT ASHAMED OF YOU SO PLEASE DON’T BE ASHAMED OF HIM

People are dying every day not knowing of Christ or the salvation he’s given. Those of us in Christ already know of his goodness and mercy and we can testify to that. It’s time to share in spirit and in truth amongst those who do not.

LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE!

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light (for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness, and truth), (Ephesians 5:8, 9 NKJV)

My Eyes Look Up to Thee……

Psalm 121 A Song of Ascents. I will lift up my eyes to the hills— From whence comes my help?

God the Help of Those Who Seek Him

My help comes from the Lord, Who made heaven and earth. He will not allow your foot to be moved; He who keeps you will not slumber. Behold, He who keeps Israel Shall neither slumber nor sleep. The Lord is your keeper; The Lord is your shade at your right hand. The sun shall not strike you by day, Nor the moon by night. The Lord shall preserve you from all evil; He shall preserve your soul. The Lord shall preserve your going out and your coming in From this time forth, and even forevermore. (Psalm 121:1-8 NKJV)

Trust in the Lord dear brethren for our God is not dead. He’s surely alive living inside of you even if you feel and think as if he is not near. He is! Emotions will get the best of us. Stand on the Word and don’t behave as if you don’t know how powerful and majestic the Great I AM is.

Do not put trust in your emotions. They come and go as the waves in the ocean; up and down. The Bible tells us:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; (Proverbs 3:5 NKJV)

Call on Him. Blow your trumpet and let your aid be made known! You need him more than anyone. Some days may grow long and weary and seem as if the light at the end of the tunnel may never shine, but I’m here to tell you that HELP is on the way. Be patient and wait on the Lord. His timing is never too early or too late. He comes right on time! TRUST and BELIEVE that you will be rescued.

Psalm 121 has personally been one of my favorite scriptures that I have embedded in my heart and trusted in since I gave my life to Christ years ago. He IS my help in times of trouble. I look UP and CALL on him because I KNOW HE is able to come through for me when I let my basket of cares be made known.

Friends, whatever it is that you are in need of, it would behoove you to let it go and give it to God. Trust that his hand is already at work. Plead your case and leave it at the alter. Amidst waiting for your rescue, count it joy as your wait with patience. The Lord is doing a great thing on the inside of you.

GOD IS ABLE TO DO ALL THINGS BUT FAIL.

Keep On Prayin’!

20120222-091030.jpg
For this reason we also, since the day we heard it, do not cease to pray for you, and to ask that you may be filled with the knowledge of His will in all wisdom and spiritual understanding; that you may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing Him, being fruitful in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; strengthened with all might, according to His glorious power, for all patience and longsuffering with joy; giving thanks to the Father who has qualified us to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in the light. (Colossians 1:9-12 NKJV)

If you only knew the joy that cease not within me when I pray for you my brothers and sisters in the Lord! Boasting is not what aim for or what I am doing, but it is to keep one another lifted up and encouraged in the Lord! There is power in numbers as we lift up our voices to the Almighty asking for his presence to be manifested in this life we journey. May the blind see, the deaf hear and those without a voice speak up! O, that healing in the mind, body and soul take place. Let our bones shut up with fire; that consuming furnace of eternal bliss, stir up a bountiful worship and praise of righteousness and joy to persevere in all things we set our hearts and minds to do in Christ Jesus! Hallelujah!!

Seek to gain the spiritual wisdom, knowledge, discernment of the King. Loose the shackles that bind you from only thinking of yourselves. Pick up the phone, send an email or text or even pay a visit to your fellow brethren letting them know they are thought of! Extend a smile and hug if possible! Prayers and encouragement plays a vital role. We are mighty, we are victorious, we are conquerors, we are bold and courageous in THE NAME OF JESUS.

PRAYER WARRIORS STEP OUT!

Authority has been given! Use it. Success has been done! Jesus paved the way! Walk in it with assurance and faith!

Let your fruit bear witness to everything you do for the sake of the Kingdom! Step out and see how good the Lord is when we love thy neighbor as he loves us! Ask for His love to radiate through you that it may shine into the life of others. There’s no particular way. God made you and knows you better than anyone. He knows the treasures that are deep inside of you. May his anointing fall fresh. Use your gifts and let the joy of the Lord be an invigorating scent of perfume drawing all men to believe that better days are ahead.

God bless you all!
