DECEMBER 17 – 23, 2017
“This is the day which the LORD hath made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” (Psalm 118:24 KJV)
Day did not suddenly appear in Genesis 1 when God spoke life back into the earth. God created Day! He spoke light in verse 3 of Genesis 1 and called it Day. I believe that the light He spoke was the entrance of His Word, the manifestation of His presence, because it was in Genesis 1:14-18 that He created lights to give light to the earth; sunlight to rule the day and moonlight for the night.
Looking at all of God’s works, which were all “good,” we see that all He created was for man’s good, for man’s enjoyment, for man’s successful living. With the fall of man, everything changed. The day that God created for man to enjoy and see His beauty and success, became one that he toiled and suffered pain and a lot of ugliness. What happened? Lucifer, the devil, became the god of this world and blinded man (2 Corinthians 4:4) from seeing God’s Genesis 1:3 “Day Light.”
The beautiful day that God made for man became just a day without the light of God to enjoy the beauty, the peace, the fulfillment… The sunlight was there, but the light of God could no longer be seen by man. What man experienced was the day the devil mapped out for him, which in actual fact was a night.
However, anyone who would put their trust in God, anyone who would acknowledge God, anyone who would walk with God and follow His ways, His prescribed order, will once again see the light of God in the day. Therefore, such a one will be able to recognise the plan God, and the plan of the enemy mapped out already for them in that day, and choose to follow the plan of God.
Lord, please help me communicate this thing that you’re showing me in my spirit. Sometimes, I get so excited and in so much awe that I wonder if I’m communicating effectively what I see. But I thank God for His Spirit who will communicate His information to you.
The day that the Lord made, He made it specially for you! He considered your whole life and all that is going on in it right now as He made this special day for you. His plan is that no matter what, this day will be a beautiful, victorious, testimony filled, joyful, full of favour, peaceful and glorious day for you. He put in place answers to your prayers, the solutions you require, the friendships you need, the smiles you need, the hugs… He opened up doors to the rooms you need to enter and threw open gates for you. The most beautiful part of it all is that YOU CAN SEE IT! Because Jesus (the Day Light) lives in you.
The devil lost his power of blindness over you. That blindness that causes people to make choices, decisions and judgements against themselves, that blindness that causes people to step out of God’s plan for their lives, that blindness that causes people not to recognise the devil when he speaks the word of God to them… He tried to do that with Jesus in Matthew 4, when he spoke the word of God to Jesus, but Jesus was able to recognise that even though it was the word of God spoken, the words carried the character of the devil.
Dear Reader, the bible lets us know that there will be a time when there will be no more night because the light of God will light up the earth (Isaiah 60:19-20, Revelation 22:5). That light is the glory of God! That light is the glory that clothed Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden before the fall. That light, that glory has been restored to us with the entrance of Jesus in our hearts. Therefore, you can clearly see and experience the beautiful day God made for you. You can also see plans the enemy has for your day and avoid them. That is why in the presence of God there is fullness of joy (Psalm 16:11), because you can clearly see God’s amazing, beautiful and great plan for your life. Seeing all of this amazingness, who wouldn’t be full of joy?
We are children of the Day, we are children of the Light, we do not belong to darkness and night (1 Thessalonians 5:5). We acknowledge this and are thankful to the Lord for making our lives beautiful. If you do not think your life is beautiful, all you have to do is turn on you Day Light. “Let there be Light!” – the entrance of the word (Jesus) gives light (Psalm 119:130).
I declare that you will bloom and bear fruit effortlessly and successfully, because this is the day the Lord has made specially for you! Be thankful and be blessed with an amazingly fulfilling week! In the mighty name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Amen!!
