The Secret Of The Zeroah

3 Aug

The Secret Of The Zeroah…

In the Temple of Jerusalem was a room called the “Holy Place.” There was only one door and no windows. The Holy Place was lit up by a golden seven branched lamp stand filled with oil and the menorah.

It didn’t matter how bright it was outside or if it was morning, noon, or night. The light of the holy place was an inner light.

You are the Temple of the living God. The primary light of your life must also come, from within. If you’re seeking your joy from a person or circumstance, then you’re seeking to be filled from the outer light.

However all the outer things can never fill up your heart with true light. The more you seek to be filled up by the things which are outside, the more empty your inside will be.

If you are God’s child, then you have the honor and privilege of being filled up from the inside out. Stop living from the outside in. Live from the inner lamp of Jesus in your heart.

Then it won’t matter rain or shine, morning, noon, or night – your light will shine and your life will be full.

Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you. Isaiah 60:1

Today, seek to live not from the outward light, the brightness of circumstances, but by the inner shining light of God’s joy and presence.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Minding Your Business

Minding Your Business…

I worked as a security guard when I was in college. One day a car theft ring came to our parking lot. My partner and I went into action.

We didn’t know what we were doing but we had seen enough movies and police shows that we said, “Hold it right there. Put your hands up.” The thieves thought we knew what we were doing so they surrendered.

I learned something. You don’t have to know what you’re doing, but if you act as if you do it’s amazing what you can accomplish.

The Bible says, “To live as beloved children.” Imagine yourself as a beloved child who grew up in heaven with perfect love, acceptance, joy, purity and holiness.

What would a child of heaven do or think? What would a child of heaven desire? Think as they would think. Desire what they would desire. Live as they would.

Just as I learned from making an arrest from a total bluff, there’s no telling how far you can go when you don’t know what you’re doing, but acting as if you do. Live as beloved children of heaven and you will be.

For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Live as children of light. Ephesians 5:8

Live this day as if you had grown up in Heaven, knowing nothing but love, and see how things change.

Walk daily with God at your side!

Love always,

Ed
