“A lamp before Me.” 1 Kings 11:36

God makes great people. He grants them a name that crosses oceans. Kings and queens travel to their doorstep to hear their wisdom.

And sometimes, regrettably, God has to tear them down.

It’s hard to watch, isn’t it? Leaders whom God has given great influence, only to watch fame devour their heart.

That was king Solomon in 930 BC.

When I read this today I received immense comfort seeing how God’s love endures forever. The light of God cannot be put out. A lamp forever burns before Him. And that lamp is you and that lamp is me if we endure under the wiles of the devil this day—who will use every trick in the book to seduce our heart into the dark.

Remain in Christ. Don’t get lazy with the gifts God has placed in you. (Notes to self.) Diligently seek was is good. Guard your heart. Don’t stop praying. You are known by God, who has blessed you in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ.

“Let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.”
