MOMENT OF DAILY ENCOUNTER (MODE)
Date: 8th December, 2021
TOPIC : THE POWER OF LIGHT (PART 3)
Scripture : Acts 4: 13. Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.
Beloved I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! Previously, we looked at the power of light, while considering the story of Saul of Tarsus. Today we shall consider a case study of Peter.
How powerful is light? (A case study of Peter)
1. Light has the power to transform a nonentity to some entity:
The story of Peter began as a fisherman (Matt.4:18-21).
While they were busy casting their nets, Jesus the Light of the world appeared and said follow me. They simply followed and hung around Jesus who is also the Light of the world and their lives turned around, they became mighty apostles.
Matthew 10: 1. And when he had called unto him his twelve disciples, he gave them power against unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease.
Beloved, you might be described as a nobody or a nonentity as long as the light from heaven is still absent, please wait until sufficient light
from heaven enters your soul, you will be amazed at the transformation that will happen to you and it will surprise your world how light from God could transform a nonentity to some entity!
2. Light has the power to eliminate fear and impart courage(Acts 2:26-40). Peter, preached with audacity because fear had been eliminated by reason of the arrival of light. This was the same Peter that was denying Jesus before a little girl(Matt.26:69-75).
Beloved, are you currently being tormented by the devil with the spirit of fear? All you need to do is to expose yourself to the light from heaven and fear will check out:
2 Timothy 1: 7. For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.
Perhaps, you are currently denying Jesus in your place of work and business! Some deny Jesus in their neighbourhood, some at school during examination etc!
In whatever capacity you as a child of God has denied your Lord, the diagnosis is that you lack light. When light floods your soul, you are ready to die for what you believe. Men that stand for Jesus and refuse to deny Him anyday, anytime are men that are flooded with light. And I pray that light from heaven will flood your life in the name of Jesus.
3. Light has the power to infuse boldness;
Acts 4: 13. Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.
Beloved, it takes boldness to perform miracles! It takes boldness to demonstrate the power of God! It takes boldness to confront wickedness. Some of us have never allowed the power of God to flow through us simply because we lack boldness. The cure to timidity is getting exposed to sufficient light from heaven because the light from heaven infuses boldness.
Remember this; Heaven is real and hell is real. The decision to spend eternity with God is best made while alive, give your heart to Jesus today.
– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Lord I desire the light from heaven, flood my soul with it Lord in the name of Jesus.
– I prophesy the Lord is turning you into some entity by virtue of the light that is flooding your soul in the name of Jesus.
– I declare every spirit of fear and timidity check out now in the name of Jesus
From your brother Alex
God bless you.
