In the Temple of Jerusalem was a room called the “Holy Place.” There was only one door and no windows. The Holy Place was lit up by a golden seven branched lamp stand filled with oil and the menorah. It didn’t matter how bright it was outside or if it was morning, noon, or night. The light of the holy place was an inner light. You are the Temple of the living God. The primary light of your life must also come, from within. If you’re seeking your joy from a person or circumstance, then you’re seeking to be filled from the outer light. However all the outer things can never fill up your heart with true light. The more you seek to be filled up by the things which are outside, the more empty your inside will be. If you are God’s child, then you have the honor and privilege of being filled up from the inside out. Stop living from the outside in. Live from the inner lamp of Messiah in your heart. Then it won’t matter rain or shine, morning, noon, or night – your light will shine and your life will be full.
Today’s Mission – Today, seek to live not from the outward light, the brightness of circumstances, but by the inner shining light of God’s joy and presence.
