Last night while praying with my grandchildren, I began to see a vision. A thought first popped into my mind. Darkness becoming light.
What I saw was a pin point of light that began to open up and as that pinpoint became larger more and more became visible. And as more became visible my ability to see further not only to my sides, but out into the distance. Brightness began to infuse my vision.
I felt like the Lord was saying to people that perhaps you have felt like there’s been just a small point of light into your into your life. Maybe not even enough to focus on. What I saw was not that God was becoming brighter because in him is found no shadow. But what I witnessed was that the more I focus on the light and disregarded the darkness the bigger things get. What began to happen was the light revealed more and more.
So I sense that there are two things that are happening here. One is we need to find the light. And we need to recognize that that light is important. That it’s not just a band aid but it is a fact a life system that God has made available to us. The second part is that we need to disregard the darkness that is about the light. We need to focus on the life that we might see all that God has to offer to us.
This morning as I reflected on the vision what I found myself thinking was that God is trying to get his people to realize that it is not about “this little light of mine I’m going to let it shine”. But we have this great light and it’s not about just shining. It reveals. And what have perhaps seemed like imprisonment is really very big and very beautiful.
What we focus on is important. Magnify the Lord. Behold Him.
