The Light of a Nation

Jan and I were walking along a country road near our home. On our walk we walked by a familiar flag we had seen many times before. It hangs from high within a large oak tree. As we passed the flag it was just at the right moment to see the rays of the sun shining through the red, white and blue fabric. in that moment, I realized the light passing through the flag was an image of what God wants to do in our nation and in each nation on the Earth.                                                    

This penetrating work of God's light is the hope of a nation. Only the light of God’s presence passing through our divided souls has the power to overcome our division and become a bridge to a new future. Possessing strong and well-documented opinions or holding the reigns of political power do not have the ability to accomplish this challenge. Only the light of God has that kind of power.                                                                                                                                

Turn on His light where you now stand and let it do its supernatural work. It may even penetrate your own soul revealing those places where you stand in unrighteous division with other people. God wants access to your heart to do a work of transformation so that when people look at you they will see His light shining through your life.
