Your Mandate To Shine – Rhapsody Of Realities TeeVo Devotional August 16th

(Let Your Light So Shine)

TO THE BIBLE: Matthew 5:14,16
“You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden… Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”

There are billions of people on Planet Earth. It’s interesting to note that no other human has ever been exactly like you; none is now, and none will ever be. God made it so!

Your uniqueness is such that it can’t be obscured. It’s the reason you must live your best, be your best, and put your best into serving the Lord Jesus Christ.

In our opening scripture, the Lord said, “You’re the light of the world, a city on a hill that can’t be hidden.” But He didn’t stop there; He added, “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.”

This is significant; it lets you know you have a divine mandate from Him to shine before all men—anywhere and everywhere.

This implies that you can always win and make progress, no matter the circumstances of your life. In this regard, Joseph, Jacob’s son, is a remarkable example. His brothers sold him into slavery, and he was later imprisoned after being falsely charged.

In spite of this, he shone brightly in the midst of those terrible times, finally rising to become Prime Minister of a foreign country, according to God’s plan and purpose.

As you pay attention to the Master’s instruction to shine, setting forth His wonderful deeds and displaying His virtues and perfections, the Scripture says men will glorify your Father in heaven.

I encourage you to put your focus and best energies into what God has called you to do, no matter where you are in life. It won’t be long before you’re catapulted to a higher dimension of success, with your life continually bringing Him glory and honour.

I’m a partaker of the inheritance of the saints in the kingdom of light. Darkness has no place in me because I’m native-born to the light and I live continually in the light of God’s Word. I manifest this light to my world ever so brightly today as I give expression to the life of Christ and His nature of righteousness in me, functioning with excellence, precision, and wisdom in all I do. Glory to God!
