"I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles; To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house." Isaiah 42:6,7
As Christians, God has given to each of us the command of the Great Commission, to share His love and truths with those who we come in contact with. The Bible says in Romans 3:23, "For all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God." Every man is in need of a Savior; our sin debt has been paid in full. The price of eternal freedom has been covered, all we must do is place our faith and trust in Jesus Christ and believe in Him so that we might know Him and spend eternity with Him in Heaven.
During my quiet time God showed me the following truths out of Isaiah 42:6, 7.
1) God has called each of us to live holy, pure lives, beyond reproach.
2) God is omnipresent. He has called us, and is also with us every step of the way as we are obedient to His will and His command.
3) God wants to give us a covenant, a promise, and a burden for those to whom we must minister. He has called us to be a Light in the darkness, we must let His love flow through us.
4) God wants us to be active in the fight for freedom. God wants to give us a heart of compassion for those who are in bondage to sin and darkness. We must stand in the gap and seek opportunities to share His love and His truths which alone can yield eternal light and freedom to those in bondage.
God asks not for our abilities, but our availability to carry out His tasks. God can use each of us to impact this world for Him, one individual at a time.
Daily Prayer Focus: Pray that God will give you a renewed burden to be active in the fight for freedom from sin and bondage!
