HE WILL LIGHT YOUR CANDLE

For thou wilt light my candle: the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness. (Psalms 18:28 KJV)

Have you ever had a feeling you were walking in deep darkness in which there was no sense of peace or solace? I have walked this place and the only source of peace and comfort was the word of God!

David was king elect, not of men but of God, the King of Kings Himself. He came face to face with the deepest challenges, fiercest darkness that he needed to face and overcome. Not because God had left him but because God was with him. The testimony is always stronger when you overcome  unlike when you don’t face it! The lion, bear and Goliath would never had been strong testimonies if David had found ways of evading them.

My blood pressure was shooting through the roof, what started as a simple leg pain seemed to be escalating. I remember one night lying stomach down on that hospital bed, I was sweating and completely out of tears. It was deep darkness I had never navigated all my life. In this moment David says, “For thou will light my candle: the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness.” In that place where you can’t see the end of the tunnel, the Lord will light your candle. He will enlighten your darkness! He turns you into the light in the tunnel!

Stop looking for the light at the end of the tunnel, you are the light in that tunnel of sickness, debt, fear, confusion, out of place emotions and distress. Let your prayer be ‘Lord light up my candle!’ When He is done doing it, clarity comes in your mind and you can spiritually navigate the way with his guidance.

I pray for you that the light of God floods your mind so you may hear His voice only and navigate the surrounding deep darkness.

Declare this,
Even though I walk through the valley of the shad ow of death, thou are with me!

HE WAS WOUNDED


But he was wounded for our transgressions,
he was bruised for our iniquities:
the chastisement of our peace was upon him;
and with his stripes we are healed. (Isaiah 53:5 KJV)

When you go through pain and discomfort it is not one of the easiest things especially when you are used to your independence. You can go where you want to go and do what you want to do anytime.

Now imagine Christ who carried with Him independence in the heavens, a beloved son of a loving God. Literally He had the freedom to do whatever He wanted and could command angels any day to do His bidding. One day He gave it all up, stepped down and lay down His life for a friend. He experienced pain with no one asking Him how He was feeling, in fact His tormentors looked for ways to make the pain worse for Him.

He was wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities. Think of it, this is in the past tense, before you could even transgress, he paid for it! Before you could engage in any form of iniquity, He was bruised for you as a full payment of the price for your redemption. He was chastised for our peace and with every stripe that went on His body, we were healed! This does not separate any condition. The deal was for Him to pay for it all, in advance!

They say Jesus received forty stripes less one, that is thirty nine. This was the Roman way of punishment. This should have given Him pain of a greater multitude than we can all imagine. One more stripe He would have died. It is by these stripes that prophet Isaiah prophetically says we were healed (past tense).

Dear saint, accept nothing of the enemy, be it a flu or a minor headache, or a sore toe because the price for your freedom from that pain was paid. It would be unfair for you to be made to pay another price for something that your Master paid for in full. It would be a day light robbery.

I pray for you today that your spiritual eyes be opened so you can see and experience the full significance of the price He paid for you on the cross.

Declare this,
I am the healed of God. I embrace the price He paid for my freedom and I choose to participate in the transaction that took place at the cross for my sake.

SCRAPS OF OLD CLOTHING

Ebed-melek got three men and went to the palace wardrobe and got some scraps of old clothing, which they tied together and lowered down with ropes to Jeremiah in the cistern. (Jeremiah 38:11 (MSG)

Prophet Jeremiah’s enemies now had him in the place where they wanted him to be. He was doomed to die a painful death in a pit hole full of mud with no food and water. It was a pitiful situation that needed a special miracle from God. His crime was speaking the word of God.

Ebed-melek approached the king about this injustice and asked him to save the prophet’s life and the mandate was given. He got a rope but seeing Jeremiah had been down there for long, he was weak and hungry and the rope would do more harm than good, he took scraps of old clothing from the wardrobe. These he threw down to Jeremiah so he could put under his armpits and then put the rope on top of them. The scraps became treasure as they accomplished the mission of taking the prophet from the pit to the court house.

Let me speak to you today. You might be in a state of panic in which you feel there is no help! You might be holed in and all you see is the darkness, all you feel are your cold feet! Every night you are getting nightmares and nothing else. Let me assure you that there is help on the way. What might seem like the end is actually the beginning of a new season. Jeremiah prophesied again after this incident.

Ebed-melek means a servant of the king. In that state of panic, I assure you that the King of kings is dispatching a servant to rescue you. There is nothing that is too difficult for Him, He is a great and a mighty King. He can use anything around you to perform that rescue including scraps of old clothing.

Do not dismiss anything around you, God can turn pruning hooks into swords. He can turn a simple mustard seed into a mighty tree. This is the God on your side and He is ready to perform a mighty rescue using the scraps of old clothing in your wardrobe.

Settle down, relax, your Ebed-melek is jumping over mountains to get to you. I pray for you that your despair turns into hope and your fear into courage.

Declare this,
I am coming out of this pit hole and I am coming out strong. My feet are strengthened and I will run again, I will prophesy again and I will enjoy life again.
