Sowing Light

20 07 2015

“Light is sown for the righteous,

And joy for the upright in heart.

Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous,

And give thanks to His holy name!”

  • Psalm 97:11-12

I love this picture. God is sowing light for the righteous. Can you imagine the fruit that springs from the seeds of light God plants in our lives? He wants us to live lives of abundant grace, overwhelming peace, dazzling joy, and confident contentment. His light will illuminate our paths, give new vision to our eyes, and dispel the shadows from our hearts.

It takes time and care for the light that is sown into our hearts to fully bloom and take shape. Rejoicing and thanksgiving are ways that we can keep our hearts soft to His movement in our lives. When we choose to rejoice, we choose to celebrate the presence of God in this moment. The circumstances may be dark, but Light is always with us. Gratitude keeps our eyes open and our hearts humble. It empowers us to see His hand on our days and His activity in our lives.

My Jesus Resolution today is to look for the harvest of light. God is sowing His light in me. It is slowly dispelling the darkness that has a hold of my soul. Light is mightier than darkness. It reveals the truth about who I am and who I can be in Christ. With light comes joy. This is the work God is doing in my life. My job is to rejoice and give thanks. Both of those things are rooted in surrender. When we keep our eyes on the Light, we begin to see the new possibilities and the deep blessings that are ours because of Jesus.
