(Psalms 119:105), Your Word is a lamp unto my feet.
(Psalms 27: 1), The Lord is my light and my salvation whom shall I fear? The Lord is the stronghold of my life of whom shall I be afraid?
(John 8:12), When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, "I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life."
Lighthouse - A tall structure topped by a powerful light used as a signal or beacon to aid marine navigation.
Navigate - To record, plan or control the position and course of a ship or aircraft. To follow a planned course on, across, or through.
Hold on now, I'm going somewhere with this. I just need to set the stage. If I were to put those two definitions together, I would say that a lighthouse is a large powerful structure used to keep ships on course. I can also use those definitions to say, "Jesus Christ is a powerful Light that can keep us on course or guide us to follow the plan that He has for us; before we were born.
If I were to describe how my life used to be without Jesus Christ navigating me through the windstorms of my life, I would say that I was lost at sea. I could not see His beacon of ling to put my life back on the planned course. I couldn't see His powerful Light that eventually guided me through my drug addiction. I couldn't see the Lord holding back the raging sea of physical abuse (that could have killed me) so that I could passed safely through the waters.
I have seen movies where a ship was lost at sea, and it was too dark for the captain to tell how far it was for them to reach land and suddenly there is a powerful beacon of light shining bright enough to navigate the captain to the dock.
Woman of God, when you are going through difficult times and your circumstances seem too dark to bare; trust the Lord to navigate, and keep watch over you. He will guide you to the Light (Himself) safely. Just because you don't see the Light doesn't mean that He is not there. Maybe you need to change your course and follow the Lord's plan. Maybe you are at the point where the Lord is telling you to stay on course, but you can't see Him. The Lord's message for you today is to stay on course, follow His plan for your life and you will see His powerful Light that is navigating your through the dark seas. You see, Jesus Christ's Light is stronger than your darkness. Amen!
Heavenly Father, I thank you for sending Your Son Jesus Christ to be my Light. My prayer today, Father is that you continue to be my guiding Light. Everywhere my footstep travel You Lord are with me. I thank you Lord that through the rough seas of my life, You are with me. I know Lord that you will never leave nor forsake me through my darkest hours. I love you Lord, I pray Lord by the power of the Holy Spirit that I walk in a Spirit of Peace right now, in Jesus Name, Amen.
Don't forget to sign up for the 2nd Annual Women's Conference in Chicago, the first week in June. I know that it seems far away but planning to hold a nice event takes a lot of time. I want everyone to be comfortable so the renting of the space is very important. Also you can purchase a copy of my book, "Mighty Woman of God", for less than $10 at www.amazon.com. Thank you and be blessed.
