Light & Revelation

Light and darkness cannot mix. As immediately as light comes, darkness is overcome. Darkness is shattered upon the introduction of light. Once you receive the new revelation, you do not have to revert to the old revelation. The reception of the new revelation simply means that there is no longer a place or use for the old revelation. Now, the old revelation was good in its place and it accomplished what it could. But the new revelation is for the new day, is for the new time, is for the new assignment and cannot be dismissed or ignored as if the old revelation will still work. Even if you try to retrofit the old revelation and make it still work, you will be sorely, sorely disappointed. Understand that the new revelation is the only way that you can now operate in the perfected will of God. The old has gone, the new has come—embrace the new.

Just like when you wake up each day you don’t attempt to travel back into yesterday. No, you accept the new day and proceed to live in it. God is releasing new revelation for His will to be done in your life. It is not that He wants to force it upon you. You need to embrace it and receive it as a demonstration of God’s will and testament that He decided for you to live today and to live out His will. ‘Thank You’ ought to be the response. And then: God, how can I do this most effectively, efficiently, and so that Your Name gets the glory?

It is in your response and in asking those questions that God’s perfect will shall be done, that you will have peace, that the Kingdom of God shall be edified, and the Name of Jesus will be glorified. This we do in the Name of Jesus.

“Through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:21-22
