Light is sown like seed for the righteous, and gladness for the upright in heart. Ps 97:11
We often hear of seeds sown as representative of a financial offering, but did you know that light has been sown like seed for the righteous. Oh my goodness. Does this make your heart rejoice? It does mine. I am constantly amazed day-by-day by the goodness of God. Light sown like seed tells me that there already exists a glimmer of direction and guidance that has been sown, which will come into being at just the right time. When the time comes, that which has been sown will come forth and the very light that I need to see, the very thought or guidance that God has prepared, will be awaiting me. I do not know about you, but I am constantly seeking God for direction. I need Him, and I can say with certainty, that you need Him too. We all need to know where to walk, and we need to see where we are going and which path to walk on.
One afternoon, years ago, I was taking a suburban full of children to the zoo. We were all excited to spend the day having fun. I had stopped to fill my vehicle up with gasoline, and I was directed by the Holy Spirit to pray over that vehicle. Now you must hear me. It was not your typical "pray before you travel" prayer. I felt a sense of real urgency. I was overwhelmed with a sense of warfare prayer. I knew in my spirit,that this was direction from the Lord. We traveled from SE Georgia to Jacksonville, spent the day, and were on our way back home when a Mac truck pulled out in front of me. Just a short distance away, another vehicle was practically at a stop on the interstate in front of me. I had no place to go.
I don't know if you are a believer in supernatural intervention, but I want you to know that God spared me and a whole SUV filled with children. I will never forget that moment. It was as though the hand of God opened a path just wide enough for me to pass safely through. Our lives were spared that day. I am so very thankful for the light that had been sown for me. Light shown, that showed me my need for urgent prayer. Light shown, that showed me there was danger ahead. Light shown, that showed a narrow path of escape. Hallelujah for light, which has been sown like seed for the righteous. Our God is a great and mighty God. He reigns, and He deserves all of our love, our adoration, and our devotion.
