TOPIC : HOW TO ACCESS LIGHT (PART 2)
Scripture :Psalm 119: 130. The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.
Beloved, I welcome you to another Moment of Daily Encounter! We began yesterday by establishing that the primary way of accessing light is by encounter with Jesus being the light of the world. Today, we shall look at how to access light from the speakings of God which is also known as the word of God.
The speakings of God are documented in several volumes of books called the Bible. The Bible is the written word of God also known as Logos! This is what we call the Holy scriptures.
2 Timothy 3: 16. All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
To access the profit of the scriptures is to access light. We must understand that behind every scripture is the voice of the Holy Spirit revealing the light thereof. The Bible said:
Psalm 119: 130. The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.
So until we permit the word to enter our spirit, light cannot be accessed. We must therefore maintain a certain attitude to be able to access light.
Attitudes to maintain to access light from the scriptures?
1. Child like attitude: an attitude of I want to learn, I don’t know but I want to know must be put on. Once you feel you already know, you shut the door of revelation.
Many believers have been robbed of light because of attitude problems. Some of us feels that because we can quote certain scriptures then the light that it has to offer we have it already.
This is the greatest deception in the body of Christ, where many can memorize scriptures yet their lives are far from the reality of what the scripture has to offer!
Beloved quoting scripture is not equal to light or understanding of the scripture. Hence we must put off the adult attitude that is tantamount to pride:
James 1: 21. Wherefore lay apart all filthiness and superfluity of naughtiness, and receive with meekness the engrafted word, which is able to save your souls.
2. Willingness to receive light : God is ever willing to send his word, but many are not willing to receive it. How willing you are is a function of how hungry you are to the light of the word of God! It is a principle in the kingdom that until your hunger is confirmed, you are not entitled to be filled:
Matthew 5: 6. Blessed are they which do hunger and thirst after righteousness: for they shall be filled.
3. Treasuring attitude :
Job 23: 12. Neither have I gone back from the commandment of his lips; I have esteemed the words of his mouth more than my necessary food.
To esteem here means to treasure! Put on the attitude of treasuring the word more than any treasure in the bank. Some are in an environment where the light of the word is being disseminated, yet their lives has nothing to show for it because of Iack of value for it. If you don’t value the word including the one you are reading here daily, it will never profit you. Value determines profit.
4. Meek attitude :
Light is always available to the meek because God is ever ready to teach the meek:
Psalm 25: 9. The meek will he guide in judgment: and the meek will he teach his way.
5. Get rid of offences, filthiness, anxiety and cares of this life because they will not allow the word of God to enter you (Matt. 13:22) and if they are present, they swallow the word quickly and it is only the word that enters us that can give us light. (Ps. 119: 130).
Beloved, to access light, change your attitude to the word, by being child-like, willing, meek and eliminate offences as well as worries and I see the light of God’s word flooding your soul in Jesus name.
Remember this: Heaven is real and hell is real, where to spend eternity is an important decision to every living soul. Jesus loves you.
Prayer points :
– Father thank you for your word to me today.
– Lord I receive grace to be meek and value your word in Jesus name.
Prophetic Declaration :
– I prophesy your season of celebration is here. Whatever you could not get from January till now, God will bring it into your life in Jesus name.
– It is a new day!!
