Regardless of our life-stage, 


we are called to honor God 


through what we do and how we do it.

When we honor God, we are demonstrating


 the high regard we have for trusting God with all that we 


are and all that we have. We are totally resigned and 


committed to trust God's Will. 

As we wholeheartedly pursue a relationship with God 


and make God's glory the purpose of every day... 


we fulfill the purpose for which we were created 


and live in a growing relationship with God...


the One Who created us.

As we follow God's lead and light... we, too, 


can graciously and fearlessly take advantage of every 


opportunity to honor God. 


With gentleness and respect in our sincere thoughts, 


words, and deeds... we can be the beacons of light 


we are called to be.

Jesus said, 


“Let your light shine before others”

 

(Matthew 5:16).


Jesus explained that no one lights a lamp just to hide it 


under a basket. A lamp is meant to be placed on a stand 


to give light to everything around it. 



We are called to be a light to the people around us. The 


light we reflect is God's, not ours. Like the sun and the 


moon, the light we reflect comes from our 


Power Source, God.

As we reflect God's glory...


others will desire to know the Source of our light... 


the Source of our joy.


May we willfully and cheerfully allow 


God's Light to shine through us,


not to bring recognition to ourselves, 


but to bring glory to God.

As we endeavor to honor God...  even mature 


Believers will encounter opposition. 


As we seek to serve God and walk in our greater 


calling... Satan will do all he can to oppose and stop us. 


He will use any willing vessel.



As we pursue God... we may find ourselves reaching new 


levels and becoming targets for new devils. Let us not 


forget that we are also engaged in the battle between 


God's truth and Satan's lies. 



Some of Satan's agents would rather hinder us, hurt us, 


harm us, and get even... rather than turning within to the


heartfelt embrace of all the beauty, value, and love 


God provides. 



Even though life will have tragedies and challenges... 


let us choose to bless the Lord at all times. 

God is worthy of praise in hard times and good times...

 


simply because God is God. 

No matter what we lose.. let us always honor God. 


Let us focus on the things that ignite our spirit and our joy. 


Let us keep an attitude of gratitude, and never allow 


Satan to steal our joy or our praise
