THE BARKING DOG
John 8:12 – When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” (NIV)
A man who has a dog slept off one night, and when he woke up, it was midnight. While attempting to switch on the light, he mistakenly stepped on the dog’s tail. Of course, because it was too dark to see, the dog began to bark until the man managed to switch on the bulbs. Once the dog realised it was its master, it kept quiet immediately and swung its tails.
This barking dog is likened to life’s situations that challenge your faith. But even as the light came on and the dog kept mute, when morning comes, your storms will calm down (Psalms 30:5). This is why you need the sure guarantor of light because, without daylight, the night-time would last longer. As seen in today’s Bible reading, Jesus is the light of the world. Anyone who follows Him will have the light that shines forth. If you have yet to accept Christ, do it now. He came specifically to rescue you!
Beloved, when you have the light, every mountain in your path will skip like rams because your destination is the top. If you are passing through a tunnel, you will experience light both within it and at the end of it. This means that your current stormy season will give birth to your long-awaited breakthroughs. So shall it be, in Jesus’ name!
Hymn: Jesus Saves – Priscilla J. Owens (1882)
1. When everything else fades, Father, help me to stand out for You always.
2. Father, still the silent and barking storms in my life, health, marriage, career, family, and the Church (Mention).
1. Holy Spirit, light up every blind spot in my spiritual walk with You.
2. Angels that will secure my profitable journey today, locate me!
3. Satanic agent and strongman assigned to block my profitable employment and services, scatter!
PEACE, BE STILL!
