USE THE LIGHT YOU HAVE


Sometimes we find ourselves asking God for more
maturity, knowledge, and revelation from Him. Then
we wonder why time has gone by and we have not
received more of these things from Him. The reason
is that we have not put into practice those things
He has already given to us. If we will apply and live
in the light He has already given us, we will find
that more light comes in His Time and His way.


Heavenly Father, forgive us for failing to live in the
light You have already given us. Help us to savor
the light we have, so that we will be prepared to
live in the light You are longing to add to what we
have. In Jesus' name.


Read Philippians 3:16


"Only let us live up to what we have already
attained." (NIV)


"Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained,
let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same
thing." (KJV)

How true your message is this morning...I needed to hear it. We all fail too use the wisdom that God has given us, but still we want to have more. If only we would humble ourselves and say, "Here am I Lord. Send me!" God's blessings. Lloyd

Amen...let us live in the light we already have, the light we have today. Jesus said we are the light of the world. And He told us to shine!

No satisfaction is the term! Sometimes we forget to appreciate what we already have. Have a Blessed Sunday!
