Light Your Lamp
“The spirit of a man is the lamp of the Lord, Searching all the inner depths of his heart.”
Proverbs 20:27 (NKJV)
In this month’s devotional, we are going to be learning about, ‘How God guides.’ Firstly, based on our opening scripture, it is important for you to know that God guides and leads you through your spirit.
Psalm 18:28 (NKJV) says, “For You will light my lamp; The Lord my God will enlighten my darkness.” This reveals that before a man or woman gets born again, they were in darkness.
Jesus in John 8:12 (NKJV) says, “Then Jesus spoke to them again, saying, “I am the light of the world. He who follows Me shall not walk in darkness, but have the light of life.” In other words, the man that is outside of Christ who is not born again is in darkness. Also, the man that is not born again or the unbeliever is darkness according to 2 Corinthians 6:14 (NKJV) which says, “Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness?” The unbeliever is darkness; darkness is his environment and darkness is the substance of his being.
This is why you must be born again if you are reading this devotional today because God lights your lamp at salvation. When you get born again, God enlightens your spirit. Please pray the prayer below to get born again or if you want a fresh start with God today.
Prayer of Salvation.
O God, I believe in Jesus Christ. I believe He is the Son of God. I believe that Jesus Christ died for my sins. I believe that God raised Jesus Christ from the dead on the third day for my justification. With my mouth I confess that Jesus Christ is my Lord. I take Him as my personal Saviour. By my faith in the blood of Jesus, I believe, I receive, the washing away of all my sins. By my faith in the Name of Jesus, I believe, I receive, eternal life into my spirit. Jesus, come into my heart, make me a new person. I repent of my sins and I turn away from them. I open my heart to the Holy Spirit, to flood my heart with the love of my Father God. I believe I am born again. I am a child of God. Amen.
