Luke 11:33-36
33 “No one lights a lamp and then hides it or puts it under a basket. Instead, it is put on a lampstand to give light to all who enter the room. 34 Your eye is a lamp for your body. A pure eye lets sunshine into your soul. But an evil eye shuts out the light and plunges you into darkness. 35 Make sure that the light you think you have is not really darkness. 36 If you are filled with light, with no dark corners, then your whole life will be radiant, as though a floodlight is shining on you.” Holy Bible, New Living Translation, (Wheaton, IL: Tyndale House Publishers, Inc.) 1996.

What is the light that shines in you today?  Is it from God or is it from yourself?  If the light in you is from God it will last forever.  If your life is going well today and you do not recognize that it is from the hand of God, it will not last.  Only when you recognize that all good things come from Him will you find true joy.  And the joy that comes from God is a joy that will carry your through any problem, trail or tragedy.  So if life is good, praise Him and do not hide that it is from Him.  Make sure that you thank Him and most of all recognize that it is from Him.  Those who belong to Him do not hide the goodness of Him in their lives.  Because it is only through praising Him and giving Him the glory that true peace and joy will be who you are.  So if you are not at a place of peace today, examine your life and see if you are giving yourself the glory for your accomplishments or do you give glory to God for where you are and what you have.  It is only when you know that God is the giver of all good things that His peace will shine through your heart and mind.

Have a God Day!
