“There will be no more night. They will not need the light of a lamp or the light of the sun, for the Lord God will give them light. And they will reign for ever and ever.”
What trait do you seek most in friends? While faith, strength, humor and a whole host of other traits are helpful, I think trustworthiness is the most important. How can I count a person as my friend if I cannot trust them to give me good counsel or act according to their word. Thankfully God has proven time and time again, through the miracles recorded in the Bible all the way up to miracles we witness today, that he is worthy of my trust. He does not earn that trust by being a genie that grants wishes to the faithful but by laying out a foundation for our fulfillment, service to those around us sustained by his love. Through this service he leads each of us down a path where our best selves can be found, refining us until we shine with his brilliance, reflecting him as the moon reflects the Sun.
Daily Battle Order:
Today, go outside in the sun. Close your eyes and feel the warmth on your skin and imagine that God is charging you with his light and love like a battery. Know that you can trust him to watch over you and guide your steps through faith and make a commitment to bring his light to everyone around you.
