God's Light
1 John 1:5-7 This is the message we have heard from him and proclaim to you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all. If we say we have fellowship with him while we walk in darkness, we lie and do not practice the truth. But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus his Son cleanses us from all sin. ESV #Bible

Where am I? Am I in the light, or am I living in darkness?
God's light has no darkness, and the darkness has no light.
If I'm living in darkness I can't see what's around me. I have no idea what's coming my way.  My only option is to group around feeling, rather than seeing where I am going. I am left in dark ignorance wandering in darkness.
Being with God, in His light, is to have the ability to see far off. To observe anything coming my way, walking with a sure step, not prone to stumbling. I am informed by God, I know what is real, I'm not left to the fear of my imagination in darkness.
I am able to see who my friends are, and know I am not alone, having fellowship with light walkers.
We know God and we understand His Truth, His Word iluminates our understanding, rather than existing in the ignorance of darkness void of God's influence. And our Saviour Jesus the Christ cleanses our sins through the blood of His sacrifice on our behalf, which is discovered in God's Light. We are grateful for God's Light, and we understand.

Gracious Power
2 Corinthians 12:9 But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me. ESV #Bible

He, meaning Jesus said to the Apostle Paul. Grace, meaning mercy, joy, loving kindness, good will, and favor for a few examples.
God's Grace covers all possibilities or experiences in this life. Grace is sufficient to handle anything and everything that comes our way, like raising a hedge or barrier about us to protect and preserve us. God's Grace is always more than enough.
The Miraculous Power of Jesus the Christ poured out through His Grace to us is a force, an invincible strength that is completed, and perfected in our weakness, our failures, our frailties.
The Grace of our Lord Jesus Christ in its power goes beyond even the limits of our reality on into Heaven even to eternity. Yet it is perfectly completed in our weakness.
For us I believe it becomes visible, or tangible in our weakness.
Paul's reaction is to boast about his weaknesses in order to have the power of Christ to rest upon him.
We Christians need to understand that just as Paul the Apostle has discovered, so we to need to discover the limitless boundaries of Gods Love found in His amazing Grace and enjoy the adventure towards Heaven and eternity. We Christians are well kept by our Savior Jesus the Christ. Amen.

Definitely a different way of thinking we need to return to.

Strength
Philippians 4:11-13 Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. I can do all things through him who strengthens me. ESV #Bible

I imagine Paul in his lifestyle before Jesus didn't go without too many things because of his position in society. Which speaks of his sacrifice, or adjustment to a life in Christ.
Paul found that when you have Jesus, the need for things was inferior to the glory he relished in, being found a believer in the Messiah Jesus far out weighed anything to be found in this world. Why would he worship a fabrication instead of the fabricator God Himself?
We don't always see or experience God's strengthening until we are brought low, or we suffer hardships like hunger or poverty.
Paul learned that in facing hunger or plenty, with Jesus all situations work out with the strengthening of our Lord Jesus, who moves us on to the next segment or adventure Jesus leads us into, finding ourselves able to do all things through Jesus who strengthens us.
In this world time goes on, and we can't stop it, as we continue to the end of this age or our lives, whichever comes first, our God Jesus cares for us, and He strengthens us and moves us on. In this we need to remember it ain't over until God our Father says its over.

This is a shot of Tower Arch in Arches National Park.  I visited in the winter, so the sun would be far enough south to include it in the shot.  Since the dynamic range was extreme, I bracketed multiple images and combined them into an HDR image.  I then stitched two HDR images together to capture a wider view of the scene.  #utah #utahphotography #moabutah #arches  #archesnationalpark #landscapephotography #hqsplandscape #naturemonday

Slow
Proverbs 16:32 Whoever is slow to anger is better than the mighty, and he who rules his spirit than he who takes a city. ESV #Bible

We all know that when we loose our temper, and our veins are popping out of our heads, or our face wrinkles, and our nose is blowing air or snorting like a bull, we have lost it.
Being slow to anger is to infuse our wisdom into our anger, using caution, and clear thinking to guide our anger into motivating us to a good action.
Naturally this characteristic of being slow to anger, does rank us with, or even better than the mighty person who by his great strength accomplishes great feats.
We don't have to accomplish out task with bruit strength, but with wisdom, and intelligence, and God's Grace, which is far superior to bruit strength.
God has told us from the book of Genesis onward, that we can master and rule our own spirit's. So as we are slow to anger we have embarked on ruling our own spirit, mastering it in all facets of our lives. This is as important as capturing a city, we capture our own spirit's.
I believe this is only possible with God's help and guidance. As we have in the past so in the future, we would fail greatly without Jesus the Christ our Great Sheppard leading us. Praise the Lord.

Faithful
Hebrews 3:1-6 Therefore, holy brothers, you who share in a heavenly calling, consider Jesus, the apostle and high priest of our confession, who was faithful to him who appointed him, just as Moses also was faithful in all God's house. For Jesus has been counted worthy of more glory than Moses--as much more glory as the builder of a house has more honor than the house itself. (For every house is built by someone, but the builder of all things is God.) Now Moses was faithful in all God's house as a servant, to testify to the things that were to be spoken later, but Christ is faithful over God's house as a son. And we are his house if indeed we hold fast our confidence and our boasting in our hope. ESV #Bible

Holy brothers and sisters, as Moses we are in the house of God, and Jesus our High Priest is Lord over us the house of God.
We are Holy because Jesus has made us Holy and set us apart from the world to be faithful to His confession of the Truth, the Good News which we are commissioned and commanded to proclaim to the ends of the earth.
Let us be faithful, and confident, and don't hold back our boasting about Jesus our Messiah and Savior of our souls. Proclaim the Love of God found in Jesus the Christ by sharing the Good News to this dying world.
Be faithful to share with your friends, neighbors, coworkers, whoever we meet, God has restored the path to Him through Jesus His Son, and so much more.

Power
Acts 1:8  But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you, and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth." ESV #Bible

How many times have I read this verse and not taken it seriously? I know I received the Holy Spirit. So then why haven't I considered the power our Holy Spirit possesses, being God, and what he offers to me a believer?
Maybe a lack of faith, or I'm not worthy, or possibly afraid of that level of commitment or responsibility. Then what kind of power, or how much.
One thing I do know, is that our Father in Heaven knows what we can and can not handle, and he won't give us any more or less that what he has created us for.
I believe as Christians we need to remain aware of what God is doing in our lives. We need to always be on the lookout for the Holy Spirit's leading, because where he guides us He provides all of our needs.
God is a Gentleman, he doesn't drive His servants like cattle, He leads us like lambs.
So whatever power you receive, use your God given faith to accomplish the mission that Jesus commanded us to do. Using the power we discover through prayer and petitioning Our God, and the study of His Word, the Bible.
I know that when we are obedient, giving our ear and full attention to our Lord Jesus, we can even move mountains. So have faith, don't be afraid, just watch what God accomplishes through you.
