I Speak Female loves guest bloggers! Today I am privileged to have a awesome woman of God share a tidbit of knowledge on letting God’s light shine through you. Enjoy!
Good morning family. Just recently, I was informed about a position that I am
being blessed to fulfill. This title comes with a huge amount of
responsibility. As usual, I received a pat on the shoulder. In many areas in
my life, there are innumerable examples of practices or traditions that are
attached to a specific status.
For instance, in some churches, it is customary
for the congregation to stand up when the pastor enters in the pulpit. To take
it a step further, most pastors will recognize the more ” seasoned” members of
the church out of respect for their life experiences. In the military, when
assembled for specific meetings or events, it is common to hear a command of
“attention” when a high ranking official arrives. I have seen senior
leadership recognize veterans of various wars who have survived with high
I have also seen the polar opposite of this admiration. Some people
will presume that they are entitled to the benefits of their postulated
arrival. The behavioral patterns associated with not acknowledging these
individuals can range from silent offense to downright audacity with
confrontation. It is truly better for God to create a platform for His Light
to shine through you. There are several historical and current illustrations
of what our feeble construction attempts result in as proof. Absolutely
nothing can be achieved without tapping into the Divine sagacity of God.
“Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for
wisdom and might are his: And he changeth the times and the seasons: he
removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and
knowledge to them that know understanding: He revealeth the deep and secret
things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.
I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my fathers, who hast given me
wisdom and might, and hast made known unto me now what we desired of thee: for
thou hast now made known unto us the king’s matter.”
