Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. And God saw the light, that it was good; and God divided the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.
YOUR DAYS SHALL BE MARKED BY LIGHT!
2. JUST AS LIGHT WAS CREATED FIRST, MAY THE LORD’S LIGHT BE FIRST IN YOUR LIFE.
2B. GOD CALLED LIGHT DAY – WHEREVER LIGHT SHINES A NEW DAY IS DAWNING.
God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.
3. LIGHT WILL NOT ONLY BE PRESENT, IT WILL GOVERN YOUR LIFE.
Then God made the greater light to RULE the day, and the lesser light to RULES the night. He made the stars also. God set them in the firmament of the heavens to give light on the earth, and to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good.
4. THE LORD IS WILLING.
For You will light my lamp; The Lord my God will enlighten my darkness.
THE GOOD YOU DO WILL SHINE AS NOON DAY, AND SPEAK FOR YOU.
He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light, And your justice as the noonday. Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him; Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way, Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.
5. THE LIGHT OF GOD SPEAKS AN END TO MY OPPRESSION AND INNER TURMOIL.
Vindicate me, O God, And plead my cause against an ungodly nation; Oh, deliver me from the deceitful and unjust man! For You are the God of my strength; Why do You cast me off? Why do I go mourning because of the oppression of the enemy? Oh, send out Your light and Your truth! Let them lead me; Let them bring me to Your holy hill And to Your tabernacle. Then I will go to the altar of God, To God my exceeding joy; And on the harp I will praise You, O God, my God. Why are you cast down, O my soul? And why are you disquieted within me? Hope in God; For I shall yet praise Him, The help of my countenance and my God.
6. THE LIGHTS OF CREATION MARK TIMES AND SEASONS – IT’S OUR TIME.
Then God said, “Let there be lights in the firmament of the heavens to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs and seasons, and for days and years;
7. THE LIGHT GOD WAS CONTESTING – THERE WAS A WAR – GOD ID STILL IN CHARGE.
The Ninth Plague: Darkness Then the Lord said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand toward heaven, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, darkness which may even be felt.” So Moses stretched out his hand toward heaven, and there was thick darkness in all the land of Egypt three days. They did not see one another; nor did anyone rise from his place for three days. But all the children of Israel had light in their dwellings.
THE IDOL OF LIGHT WAS JUDGED!
8. LIGHT AND TRUE LEADERSHIP CREATE AN ENVIRONMENT WHERE PEOPLE’S GIFTS AND ABILITIES BLOSSOM.
2 Samuel 23:3-4
The God of Israel said, The Rock of Israel spoke to me: ‘He who rules over men must be just, Ruling in the fear of God. And he shall be like the light of the morning when the sun rises, A morning without clouds, Like the tender grass springing out of the earth, By clear shining after rain.’
9. THE FOLLOWING OF THE LIGHT IS PROOF OF A TRANSFORMED HEART.
Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!
