|Light Of God
Daily Devotions: by Christina Farris
I set and wonder this morning about Noah Ark and if the people knew of its location as we do today in the since of where Godís word declares it to be. Jerusalemís ark is much like a reminder of the original ark. Yet we look at the ark and believe God is in the Ark of the Covenant. A covenant of laws created for man to understand and not break. Yet the covenant of laws were impossible for man to abide by. No one obeyed God, just like in the days of Noah. Two lights that exist and it is the word of God and the Spirit of God. These two lights are one with the Father for they come from the Father of all. Noah moved by Godís Word and Spirit to build ark. Moses people lead by Moses by the Word and Spirit of God. Jonah a preacher of righteousness found a fish in the storm of repentance as protection. Did he understand Godís protection after being vomited up on the shore like Noah landing and coming out of the sea onto dry land? Did the reality of Godís provision of ark by the mouth and stomach of a great fish, enough for Jonah to tell his story and preach salvation to all that believed.
One cannot hide the light of God on the hill in Jerusalem, or under a bush, but it must spread. Something to note about the light of God, as Israel traveled to the promise land people heard far and wide the power of Israel God. Can God be hide, can the light of Christ, and can the word of God be hide? Can the Holy Spirit of promise to the believer be hide, when the word God goes forth?
If God is moving in your life do not hide it, but shine for Jesus. For His light is hide in your heart to shine forth by His Spirit. There will be those that will hear like the city of Nineveh and then there be some that will hear and not listen. Yet the things of God are worth hearing. Be moved by Godís Spirit and His Word that shines in all believersí hearts.
Dear Heavenly Father may your light shine forth from our hearts so others can see who you be. In Jesus precious name, Amen.
