We have just entered the Feast of Hanukkah (an 8-day Jewish Festival of Lights) and while I was pondering on the miracle of the oil that lasted 8 days when the Maccabees rededicated the Temple in Jerusalem and lighted the Menorah, the Holy Spirit quickened this Word to me:
For those who press in, asking the Father of glory for an increase in the Spirit of Wisdom and revelation (Eph.1:17), there will be a supernatural release of illumination to “see” in a new way with much clarity and understanding.
I had a vision of “glory bursts” (which is the best way in which I can describe it), shining with brilliant light into people’s eyes, illuminating their spiritual understanding.
Hanukkah means “dedication” and as we dedicate ourselves in holiness before the Lord, with a greater desire to know Him for who He is, asking for enlightened understanding, God will supernaturally meet our desire.
It is also our opportunity to celebrate the Lord Jesus Christ as the Light of the world, praying for Light to shine into dark places of turmoil in the world and for many to receive salvation.
Let us focus on being shining lights of God’s glory in every situation!
For God, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, hath shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.
James 1:17 (KJV)
” Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning.”
“O send out Thy light and Thy truth: let them lead me; let them bring me unto Thy holy hill, and to Thy tabernacles.”
“Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the Lord shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising.”
