As you serve in your labor, it is My Name you carry. For it is I that created you, and I that has given you breath. It is I that has saved and brought you to this place. I have given you strength and good fortune, and made you rich in My faith and Spirit. And now also you carry my Name, and bear likeness to My image. So lift first your head to the Father, then lift others that bear My Name in their struggles, and then to the unbelievers show the Light of life, that their struggle might be lessened and dead bones revived. You are My ambassador into darkness. Be courageous in faith. Cower not under fear, for fear must bow to faith, as all the earth will bend its knee to the Father of Light, and to the Son whom He has sent. You have such power given to you – healing light for those in the ill of darkness. I send you that you would do great work in My Name.
Matt 5:14-16 (ESV) – You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
Bottom Line: It’s hard to believe that when we give our lives to God, we become so much more than we were. We still look the same, and feel the same, but our faith says something different. We become a new person, empowered by the God that created us. How can it be…as we go to our jobs each day, feeling normal and not very special? Is it a lack of faith? Is that why Jesus put such an emphasis on our faith? We are light bearers of the King. When you get dressed for work, remember and have faith – it is His Name and Light that you carry. Let it shine!
