As I woke this morning, I heard the words spoken to me: “get plenty of sun today”.
Fall and Winter are coming! The days will be darker as the planet rotates and our time in the sun gets shorter. Even our fall schedules won’t have flexibility to stay in daylight as we were allowed to in the summer months. Our bodies need Vitamin D, which is derived from the sun. Vitamin D is important to our bodies and health, especially for our immune systems.
With the fall season, we will also have darker days and therefore, even our minds will see less physical light. Because of this, it is also important to stay in the son (of God), who is Jesus Christ. The fall season is also considered to be a season of death. Much of the world’s life systems, bugs, trees and plants die or go dormant. We tend to see this death and lose hope or at least recognize that even our lives are temporary. As such, we must always remember our Lord and praise Him and the son, who is Jesus Christ. Our hope is in Jesus for an everlasting life. This will bring us light even in the darkest of days and seasons. So, stay in the son of God, Jesus Christ. Be hidden in Him, who saves and trust in Him to keep you at peace and full of light and hope.
For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.Colossians 3:3
This message also means we must continue staying in the body of Christ. We are called to meet together often (Hebrews 10:25) to celebrate our Lord, our callings for the Lord and, and to sharpen each other in Christ (Proverbs 27:17). Let us also pray for each other continuously and pray without ceasing for His guidance, mercy, grace, and gifts.
not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.Hebrews 10:25
We serve a triune God! Three in one, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. So when I hear a word, I also look for the other meanings, usually at least three. The third revelation from this morning’s word is to stay in the Son, and since Jesus is also the Word of God (John 1:14), we must also keep our minds on His word in our bible and continuously renew our mind in Christ and His teachings. This means bible study is required. New meaning and revelations will be added to our lives as we stay and study the word of God throughout the year. This is just a reminder to do so, as many have fallen away from meeting together or have neglected reading or staying in His word. The Lord is our strength and our comforter. He will see us through the next seasons. He is with us!
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.John 1:14
We have open heavens! This may result in the enemy having abilities to attack more powerfully in the upcoming months. So, let’s be sure to keep our mouths full of praise, our minds stayed on Him, and let His word from this message bring us a gentle reminder to stay in His word, focus on His Son, get some sun (outdoors), dwell on His Kingdom, and behold His glory!
Blessings to you this day and may the Lord keep you in perfect peace for the days ahead. Have joy in all things, for the Lord is good!
You are loved! ❤️
