Being The Light In Life was taught by Rev. Dunamis Okunowo on the 24th of October 2021 at Shouts of Grace Center, Joke Plaza, Beside Trans Amusement Park, Bodija-UI Road, Ibadan.
In his teaching, Rev. Dunamis made mention of the following important points:
The first words God spoke was ‘Light.’
God spoke: “Light!” And light appeared.Genesis 1:3 (MSG)
The first thing to seek in every situation is light.
You cannot afford to be without light!
When you walk in the dark, you will surely stumble.
But if a man walk in the night, he stumbleth, because there is no light in him.John 11:10 (KJV)
The Light that Scripture is talking about is light on the inside, not an external light. You need light inside you, not torch light!
May the eyes of your understanding be enlightened.
The eyes of your understanding being enlightened; that ye may know what is the hope of his calling, and what the riches of the glory of his inheritance in the saints,Ephesians 1:18 (KJV)
The more the darkness, the more the opportunity for you to shine.
For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.Isaiah 60:2-3 (KJV)
You are light! You are not darkness!
As the head of the house, you are meant to have more light. As a husband, God expects you to provide vision for your family!
Every problem you encounter (every issue you have) is as a result of a lack of light. And until you see light, everything remains the same. Things fail due to a lack of light.
God’s word is not dependent on what is going on in the society; God’s word is self-existent!
Never allow yourself to get accustomed to darkness! Switch on your light!
When there’s light on your inside, your speech will change.
To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, [it is] because [there is] no light in them.Isaiah 8:20 (KJV)
Your words are dependent on the amount of light you have on the inside. Words are spirits.
Some Points To Note
- Jesus is the light.
Jesus once again addressed them: “I am the world’s Light. No one who follows me stumbles around in the darkness. I provide plenty of light to live in.”John 8:12 (MSG)
You have no excuse not to walk in light; Jesus says, “I provide plenty of light.” You must therefore work at the manifestation of you being the light in life.
He that has the light is the one in control.
It is your light that will announce you.
The Gentiles shall come to your light, And kings to the brightness of your rising.Isaiah 60:3 (NKJV)
2. Men usually prefer darkness until they meet Jesus.
And this is the condemnation, that the light has come into the world, and men loved darkness rather than light, because their deeds were evil.John 3:19 (NKJV)
3. Make up your mind to go for light, because that’s where your victory is.
No matter how intense the darkness is, it will get shattered once light comes
No matter how far into darkness you’ve gone, all you need is an encounter with light.
Then Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest and asked letters from him to the synagogues of Damascus, so that if he found any who were of the Way, whether men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem. As he journeyed he came near Damascus, and suddenly a light shone around him from heaven.Acts 9:1-3 (NKJV)
All you need is light – in your business, marriage, career, etc. You must seek the manifestation of you being the light in life.
