Topic: Acts 20:7, 8
S.Acts 20:7, 8 (NKJ) ......Paul, ready to depart the next day, spoke to them and continued his message until midnight. There were many lamps in the upper room where they were gathered together.
O.It was midnight and dark as it can get...outside. But INSIDE this 'upper room' it was ILLUMINATED with the LIGHT of MANY LAMPS! The 'upper room' represents our thoughts. The 'lamps' are lit in our minds by the Word of God. When we THINK GODS WORDS, we light the wick of our thoughts...and our mind becomes illuminated, shining light in the darkness of negative thinking, the thoughts put there by the evil one.
A.Negative thinking truly has darkened my thoughts at times, especially in times of trials or difficulties. Satan loves this. He loves to twist my thoughts into thinking I am NOT what God made me to be...and what God says I am! But when I seek the Light of God's Word, all those dark and negative thoughts scatter. Negative thinking can not STAY in darkness when I expose it to God's Light. I have the mind of Christ and all darkness has to flee because I have lit the fuse of His Word!
P.Jesus, I SO thank You for the Word, and that YOU are the Word! I praise You for illumination of Your Word in my mind and spirit! You truly Light up my life, Lord!
