What is Understanding?

To understand is to comprehend. It is to gain insight into something; it is to come to a realization. It is the point at which we nod positively at a revelation, the point of “Oh waoh.”

What is Power?

  • Power refers to ability, potential, capacity, influence, or the force behind something.
  • Power is the force that makes things work
  • Power is influence (spiritually, politically, financially, etc.).

What is light?

Light is the power/force that God created to dispel darkness, void, and chaos. Genesis 1:1-4 records, “1 In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth. 2 And the earth was without form, and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters. 3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light. 4 And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness.” KJV

Coming back to the topic “UNDERSTANDING THE POWER IN YOU AS LIGHT,” we can now raise some more questions:

Who are you?

You are a light. (Repeat). Say to yourself, “I am a light.”

How do you know that you are a light?

Jesus told you. He said in Matthew 5:16-17, “14 You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden. 15 Nor do they light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house. 16 Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven.” NKJV

What does light do?

Light from the Sun warms the Earth, drives global weather patterns, and initiates the life-sustaining process of photosynthesis.” (https://www.britannica.com/science/light).

Light brightens, removes darkness, brings confidence, and helps one to know the way. Light reveals.

Therefore, it is safe to conclude that understanding that you can (power) brighten (lighten) peoples’ lives changes your self-assessment and worldview; you begin to see yourself as a force and an influencer.

This is to say there is a realm in life where you come to terms with the fact that

  • You carry the force that brightens other people’s lives.
  • Since Jesus calls you the light, you need to realize that you have the capability to warm people’s lives with the message of Jesus (as the Sun warms the entire earth daily).
  • Light is the life-sustaining power that makes plants grow, so you must come to understand that you have the ability and capacity to shine the gospel into people’s lives in the way that you live.

Say to yourself, “I have the power to change people’s lives.” Thanks be to God Almighty.

The Jesus in us is a light that shines, and darkness cannot comprehend Him. So, we must understand that the source of our light and the One who calls us light are incomprehensible. Therefore, we carry the incomprehensible. Halleluia to Jesus.

Pray that God will open your understanding to who you are in Him and what you are supposed to achieve in His kingdom
