5-20-14 The Lords Highlighting

We Christians often marvel at how our Lord and Savior shows His love for us as we journey through this life enjoying our personal relationship with the Creator, Savior and benefactor of the universe. The more we understand about Christ’s Sovereignty, the more awesome a personal relationship with Christ becomes.
Christ is so close to us he wants us to catch the special events coming our way. One time while visiting my mother’s place in George, Iowa, I had to run to a neighboring town for something and the Lord seemed to want me to take my camera but I was too rushed to go get it and besides it may have just been my imagination. I was in flat farm country and what would I miss if I did not have my camera? On the way back a storm came up and as it passed, there in a field was a brightly lit white barn perfectly framed by a perfect rainbow against a dark sky. How I wished I had had my camera. This picture could have become a famous stock photo still in use and being enjoyed to this day.
Have you noticed how much the place where you live can change when the light changes? I love the polarized light that results when the low late evening sun comes through a slit in the clouds. One time in an Ontario park I was trying to capture a scene lit like this and the light was so low I couldn’t get my shadow out of the picture even lying flat on a dirt road while hoping no one came from the other way driving into the sun.
We all enjoy the halos the Lord puts on our loved ones, the window lit flowers in a darkened room, the silhouettes of farm buildings in the setting sun and on and on. Have you considered how the Lord blesses us with the light show around us? This is one of His blessings he wants us to enjoy. The old saying about stop and smell the roses ought to be and enjoy the sight.
Have you considered how Christ is the master of light? I frequently marvel at how one of the Lord’s curses on ancient Egypt was darkness so complete that the Egyptians could not move from where they were for three days and yet where the Israelites lived there was light. Exodus 10:21-23 21 Then the LORD said to Moses, “Stretch out your hand toward the sky, that there may be darkness over the land of Egypt, even a darkness which may be felt.” 22 So Moses stretched out his hand toward the sky, and there was thick darkness in all the land of Egypt for three days. 23 They did not see one another, nor did anyone rise from his place for three days, but all the sons of Israel had light in their dwellings.
I like to think about Heaven and the marvelous 1,500 mile square cube of a city where our Lord is preparing a mansion for us and the view it will have. The views in the mile deep Grand Canyon are marvelous and it is difficult to consider how much more we will enjoy the views when in Heaven. See Revelation 21:10-27.
So let us be aware of the Lord’s light show presented for us as another blessing we can look forward to.
