Like Moths to a Flame

So, I’ve noticed something on my journey with God. Holla if you know this one. Blessings are attractive. The love of God is attractive. To everyone. If you didn’t know before, you always find out who the people around you are when your blessings begin to be public. Psalm 23:5 (KJV) states Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

If things are not ideal in your life and suddenly they start turning around, the first ones to notice are your haters. God makes sure that the haterade is sweet and plentiful. What you need to remember is that when you start to draw closer to God, He begins to draw closer to you. His love for you becomes more and more apparent. His blessings begin to overflow to the point that they become not just for you but for those around you. Pressed down shaken together and running over. (Luke 6:38) Now, this verse is in regard to a teaching about criticism versus the attributes of Godly living. The world calls it karma. When you live you life according to Christ, it shows in abundance.

What as broken in your life begins to straighten out and those People that allowed themselves to be used by the enemy will point it out quick fast and in a hurry. But notice, the manifestation of your faith is a beacon of light. Matthew 5:14 (KJV) says,  Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. When we truly begin to follow God, we become lights in the darkness of this world.

Think about when you come home and the house is dark. With all the technology we have nowadays, some device in the room will have some small light on it. We are drawn to that light if for no other reason but to orient ourselves in the room so we can get to the light switch. We, as believers, are that tiny light that people see in that dark room. Our light is magnetic. People can’t help themselves but to gravitate to you. When you have the hand of God on your life, you can’t help but to radiate His love. It comes out of your pores. A room lightens by just you walking in.

Walk confidently in God’s light. Stay humble and remember that all kinds of things are attracted to your light. Ask God every day to show you who people are when they come into your presence so you can keep out the things of the darkness that will come to try to dim your light. ~Selah
