Luke 11: 33-36 (NKJV) “No one, when he has lit a lamp, puts it in a secret place or under a basket, but on a lampstand, that those who come in may see the light. The lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore, when your eye is good, your whole body also is full of light. But when your eye is bad, your body also is full of darkness. Therefore take heed that the light which is in you is not darkness. If then your whole body is full of light, having no part dark, the whole body will be full of light, as when the bright shining of a lamp gives you light.”
The Bible states, ‘your eyes are the lamps of your body; watch out that the light in you (in this case, our eyes or perspective ) does not become darkness! What the Bible means is though the Words are in our lives so that we can have the light of mankind, but if we fail to see everything in daily lives from the perspective of the Word, then it means the ‘light in us’ has become darkness!
The keyword that the Holy Spirit gave me was: “watch out your” eyes “- the perspective you have! As long as your eyes continue to fixed on physical data and facts, you will continue to feel the” darkness of this world” dominates and grips your life – even though verily you already have the Word! Make my Word, said the Lord, as your perspective and as guidance in your life, and influence the aspects of consideration and decision making in your life! That’s what it means to light a lamp and put it on a lampstand!
When you push in the Spirit to enter My presence and accept the Word of life, make My Word as the onlyconsideration and decision making in your life! Do not compare My Word with physical data or facts and then you say, “This does not make sense, it seems impossible and so on”. Instead, you must begin to see various bad or negative data and facts, from the perspective of My Word so that it is not despair or fear and discouragement that you will experience, but you will see all negative data and facts with enthusiasm and fervent hope because you realize that my Words are always ‘YES’ and ‘AMEN’. Now you can ‘see’ the ‘opportunity’ in the midst of ‘challenges’ and in every ‘distress’!!”
The rise of faith and optimism and the growth of hope will turn bad conditions into great victories! Therefore learn to see everything that is happening globally (the Pandemic of COVID-19 outbreak) from God’s perspective! Set the eyes of our hearts to inspiring news that gives hope and optimism. Regardless of what was the goal of the Global Elite or the Shadow Man in creating this global hysteria of the Corona pandemic, God plans goodness, even God is turning this global crisis into good for His chosen people! Indonesia is surely able to win the war against the Coronavirus outbreak!
Make sure all broadcasts that are negative news and may scare many others, stopped on our smartphones! While our good intentions are to warn others, yet actually it helps to spread the panic virus to others!
Trust me, this Coronavirus is not as deathly as how the group of people who create (for their benefit) hysteria and panic wants us to believe! We surely have to take care of ourselves, our health, our hygiene, and keep following the government’s directives to cut the spread of this virus! But do everything with correct logic and sane mind with the basis of beliefs that are aligned with the Word! Any panic or fear will only make us more vulnerable to being inclined to realize the plot of that group.
Let’s make decisions and determined to only viral the good news! Start positioning yourself to be the Agent of Transformation for this nation! #ILoveGod
