Every gift God freely gives us is good and perfect, streaming down from the Father of lights, who shines from the heavens with no hidden shadow or darkness. James 1:17 (TPT)
Christmas means the celebration of Christ. God sent Jesus to all of us living in a dark world. His message to us today and always is “peace on earth, goodwill to all men.” The Lord wills only good and perfect gifts for us. His heart never harms us. He is the Father of lights. In the northern hemisphere, amid the darkest time of the year, we celebrate the Light of the world, Jesus.
As natural light enhances the beauty around us, the Light of our soul creates beauty within us. If we walk in the Light of the Lord, we are at peace with God and with people. We enjoy life despite the troubles we’ve endured. We must think in the light if we are to walk in the light. We become what we are not by what we eat but by what we think!
Proverbs 4:23 gives us food for thought: We must guard our hearts above all else, for everything we do flows from it. Evil thoughts proceed from the heart. If we are to color our world beautiful, we must first think about beautiful things. When your heart is full of God’s Light, our thoughts will project light. Let us clasp our thinking on the promises of God, devoting ourselves to prayer, knowing that in Him there is no darkness at all.
