Joy of My Heart with Anne Graham Lotz - December 9

December 9

Turn on the Light!

The unfolding of your words gives light; it gives understanding to the simple.

Psalm 119:130, niv

In the beginning there was no dawn to end the night, no sun to warm the day, no moonlight reflected in the swirling water, no horizon, just a never-ending night!

God didn’t leave our environment in a murky, dusky twilight. “God . . . separated the light from the darkness. God called the light ‘day,’ and the darkness he called ‘night’” (Gen.1:4, niv).

While the light described was literal, it has wonderful analogy and personal meaning for you and me, because light in the spiritual sense represents the truth, clarity, spiritual understanding, and discernment we receive from God’s written Word. So . . . read your Bible and turn the Light on!

THE KEY TO A LIFE OF IMPACT

What are the secrets to a life of impact? Daniel achieved greatness in the eyes of his contemporaries, in the eyes of history, and most importantly, in the eyes of God. His faith did not waver as he faced his critics, as he served new kings in power, or even as he confronted hungry lions. How can we achieve that kind of faith today? Twenty intentional, key choices made all the difference. Daniel’s choices can be ours, such as:

•  The choice to listen
•  The choice to forgive
•  The choice to pray

Cultivate a life-changing faith when you learn to implement The Daniel Key into your everyday life. Request your copy!
