Do we ever crave a personal benediction? A blessing from God that motivates and moves us to action? Do we desire God’s movement on our behalf?
A blessing for the nation of Israel can be applied to my life by a work of Jesus. “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you.” (Isaiah 60:1) This prophet is trying to empower me through the realization that my light has come and the glory of God rests on me.
Jesus is Light. He is the Light of the world. He has not only come into the world but has come into my life. And with that Light comes the glory of God. This glory of Light illuminates my whole life.
Yes! I do crave a personal blessing. And I’ve received it when I received Jesus: the Light of the world.
