‘Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house.

You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hid.

‘Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in Heaven.”

Matthew 5:14-16 KJV

Don’t Hide Your Light

I am a nature lover. I love all of it: the animals, some but not all of the insects, naturally (I love butterflies and such), flowers and bushes and trees, the oceans and rivers and lakes – ALL of Gods wondrous creations. There is nothing more beautiful than a sunset at night and the sunrise in the morning. I even love thunderstorms with lots of cool lightning.

One evening, as I peered about at the oodles of sparkling fireflies evident in the darkness, it came to me how they remind me of Christians. The Bible says that we are not to hide our light, the light of Christ in us, and not to put it under a bushel basket where it will be hidden from the world. We are, instead, to shine like lights in the darkness. If you can visualize this, Christians sparkle throughout the world, as fireflies do in the darkness. As you know, Satan is trying to quench those lights and put them out.

Another day I was watching a movie that had dolphins swimming about in the ocean, where a young woman was cowering on a buoy as a huge shark surrounded her, trying to knock her down so he could ingest her. It came to me then just how that scene resembles how Christians are continually tempted to fall, by Satan’s ploys or lies or tactics. Now, if you are aware, dolphins have always symbolized Jesus Christ. And it is well known that swimming with dolphins will protect a person from shark attack. So, even when God’s children are under attack by the Enemy, Jesus is always there to watch over and protect us. Cool, huh?

The point of this article is to encourage all believers in Jesus Christ to keep their lights burning bright. Do not allow the Enemy to tear you down. Do not stop using your gifts, talents, and abilities. Satan will do everything he can to stop you from moving forward in your purpose for Jesus. Sharks (wicked people) will attack you and try and steal your blessings. They will do anything and everything to try and take you out. But know that God will protect you, so long as you are walking with Him in true obedience. There are many false Christians out there who may actually be part of gang-stalking groups or witches’ covens who want to destroy you. If you are targeted, as I have been since moving to Kansas, you are under demonic attack. So be wary of those around you. Keep your focus on Jesus. He will protect you and guide your steps.

God bless you, my brothers and sisters in Christ. Keep the faith and hold fast to the Word of God always. And never forget that Jesus loves you fiercely and will protect what belongs to Him. And when the time comes, He will avenge you against all of your enemies. Doubt it not.

Shalom.

Remember to always keep your light plugged into the Source.
