The Light That Exposes

“All things that are reproved are made manifest by the light: for whatsoever doth make manifest is light” (Ephesians 5:13). Do not be wounded by truth when it shines on the inadequacies within the soul. Not only does God’s Word pierce and expose, but it also cuts and divides, setting us free from the anchor of self (2).

The diagnoses of sickness are only to expose a soul’s infection for the purpose of putting it away and receiving in its stead a resurrection standard. The problem is that many often interrupt God with excuses and defenses before He has had His say! Thus, tension, anxiety and sensitivity result, causing them to release the pressure building up in the emotions. God’s Word in itself is the dynamic, effective power that will make manifest the areas in our lives that are not aligned with God’s will. Our one responsibility is to receive it in faith, believing that what God says, He also will accomplish within our hearts (3).

Listen before you answer God. Concentration upon God’s Word sanctifies the mind for God’s thoughts, desires, and concerns. Be keen to hear the full impact of what God is saying.

As you allow His light to be your frame of reference, you will be enabled to walk as a child of the light exposing darkness wherever you go. Remember – “now are ye light in the Lord” (Ephesians 5:8).
