Oh Lord, I pray that You will help us shine brightly in this darkened world. It is sad when I hear people say that all they see are good things in this world when Satan has taken over most of it. Truly, many people who say they are Christians are really not living for You but the flesh. Do they not realize what they are doing to their salvation? I wonder, Lord, how people can expect to go to heaven after living a life that is more like the world than anything else. Truly, only if we are born again in the Spirit can we go to Your heavenly home. Help people understand this fact. Maybe then will people learn to do Your will as it is in heaven. I love to walk out my faith. To shine brightly for You is the least I can do. You saved a wretch like me and for me to now help lead others to follow You is my only desire. Lord, fill me with Your peace. Fill me with Your love. Fill me with Your holiness. Fill me with Your righteousness. Help me to be patient with every person I am around. Help me to love others as You love us. I want to see many more souls rescued from the flames of hell before my life is over. I only You, Lord. My only desire is to do Your will. Amen.
Leviticus 24:1,2 (KJV)
1 And the Lord spake unto Moses, saying,
2 Command the children of Israel, that they bring unto thee pure oil olive beaten for the light, to cause the lamps to burn continually.
Willful sin tears us away from God and causes our light to go dim and then out completely. Only God can help this to not happen.
