"And God saw the light."
This morning we noticed the goodness of the light, and the Lord's dividing it from the darkness, we now note the special eye which the Lord had for the light. "God saw the light"--He looked at it with complacency, gazed upon it with pleasure, saw that it "was good."
If the Lord has given you light, dear reader, He looks on that light with peculiar interest; for not only is it dear to Him as His own handiwork, but because it is like Himself, for "He is light."
Pleasant it is to the believer to know that God's eye is thus tenderly observant of that work of grace which He has begun.
He never loses sight of the treasure which He has placed in our earthen vessels.
Sometimes we cannot see the light, but God always sees the light, and that is much better than our seeing it. Better for the judge to see my innocence than for me to think I see it.
It is very comfortable for me to know that I am one of God's people--but whether I know it or not, if the Lord knows it, I am still safe. This is the foundation, "The Lord knoweth them that are His."
You may be sighing and groaning because of inbred sin, and mourning over your darkness, yet the Lord sees "light" in your heart, for He has put it there, and all the cloudiness and gloom of your soul cannot conceal your light from His gracious eye.
You may have sunk low in despondency, and even despair; but if your soul has any longing towards Christ, and if you are seeking to rest in His finished work, God sees the "light."
He not only sees it, but He also preserves it in you.
"I, the Lord, do keep it."
This is a precious thought to those who, after anxious watching and guarding of themselves, feel their own powerlessness to do so.
The light thus preserved by His grace, He will one day develop into the splendour of noonday, and the fulness of glory.
The light within is the dawn of the eternal day.
If you are not a believer in Jesus Christ,
you can be accepted in to his kingdom.
I invite you to let him to make of you what He always wanted.
Marvelous God Almighty, I come to you in the precious name of Jesus, who died for me to make me free of sin,
I want Jesus to enter in to my heart and make me free.
I confess that He is the son of God.
I ask to change my heart and to give me wisdom to understand your Holy Word full of promises of eternal value, not only to live on this earth, but to be expectant of my life in heaven.
In the precious name of Jesus I ask.
“The true minister of Christ knows that the true value of a sermon must lie,
not in its fashion and manner,
but in the truth which it contains.”
.... Reflection and inspiration from the "Prince of Preachers,"
Charles Haddon Spurgeon.
The purpose of these pages is to share the precious word of God,
without acquiring any monetary reward.
God gave me the salvation for free,
so I share the gospel of his word the same way ..
