Covered light

lamp

“Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” – Matthew 5: 15 

The whole world will see the light in you when you let it shine. The light is God and He is burning inside of you but some things may be covering that light. Blocking it from getting out, sometimes we may see little glimpses of the light inside of us and we may shine for a short while but how does it become covered?

The devil’s attacks that we allow to cling to us cover our light. Go and pray and God will show you what these things are, some will be old problems and some new problems. These things blanket the light inside of us. We all get covered with rubbish sometimes but when we learn to throw off the things covering us we can start to see the light shine again. You are not strong enough to remove these by yourselves so submit to God and see them removed. Spend some time with your creator and He will rip these bowls and covers off. And the same way a child is attracted to things that sparkle, people around us will be attracted to us. And then what do we do? Simple. Direct them to Jesus. Spend time with God. Remove the covers. Let your  light shine.
