When we want to know if something is of the Lord, we bring it into the light. We bring things to the Lord for clarity in our perceptions. This eliminates assumptions and misconceptions, and enables our decisions to be filled with confidence in the Lord.
There are some stores where we shop that the light is so dim we have difficulty seeing what we are getting. There have been times where I thought a piece of clothing was one color, and discovered it was a different color when I placed it under a better light. The same is true for objects and most of all, relationships. What appears to shine on the outside needs to be placed under the light of the Lord to determine if it’s the same way on the inside? This is accomplished in the presence of the Lord.
It’s in our fellowship with the Lord that our fellowship with others becomes free from what is unseen in the natural. When we praise the Lord, pray, worship, read the Word of God or fellowship with other believers, the light is even brighter. Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Light. We can trust that as we abide in Him deception will attempt to hinder us, but will utterly fail and come to nothing. We shall know the truth and the truth sets us free, from glory to glory!
Ephesians 5:13 “But all things that are exposed are made manifest by the light, for whatever makes manifest is light.”
