The Lord turns on the light

It was Thursday(yesterday) afternoon and I was driving to a service call, and as the Lord oftens does, He leads me into thinking what my next post would be. The post would be about how so many people today are breaking His Commandment “Thou shall not worship idols or images”. I was jotting notes as I could, getting thoughts put down. Then it all changed(the message)  when I got home!

As I have posted before, I often pray this prayer “Lord, help me to be righteous, lead me in the right path, PLEASE admonish me and warn me if I am doing wrong in your eyes, just YELL it to me if you have to, so I am very clear as to what I am doing wrong”. The last few weeks I had sensed something was amiss. I have experienced a real closeness to the Lord, and of late it was as if my walk wasn’t just right. Somewhere I was doing a wrong or going down a useless path causing this feeling.

So I got home, tired from the day. I proceed to walk into my bedroom and what I saw stunned me!  My bedroom night light was on (next to my bed) and the clock was blinking! I stopped in mid track and just stared at them. I DID NOT leave my night light on as I always turn it off when I go to bed the prior night. “What is going on??” I thought. Then it hit me. The Lord has turned it on! Amazed, I knelt down and tearfully thanked Him after He told me what this was all about.

The Lord was telling me “Rob, you have been spending almost all your evenings watching TV (poker, sports, etc.) and forgetting about reading my word!” The clock was blinking, to remind me, that it was TIME to get back to studying and devoting myself to learning His word and other God inspired writings. He knew that I always read the bible and other God inspired writings in bed next to that light.  At first I thought that maybe we had a “brown out” because the clocks will go off then when the light goes back on,  they blink.  But I had checked the other clocks in house and NO blinking! Plus the time was correct.

Still stunned I walked around the house in a blissful daze, knowing my almighty Lord had spoken to me DIRECTLY. He had answered my frequent prayer and showed His power through this sign. I can’t tell you how elated I felt to KNOW we have such a caring and watchful Lord, able to show signs to tell us He’s with us,  watching our every move.  The scripture (John 14:21) comes to mind “He that has my Commandments and keeps them, he it is that loves me and shall be loved by the Father, and I will love Him, and WILL REVEAL MYSELF TO HIM”    Amen!    This “revealing” can do SO MUCH to boost our confidence in the Lord, it staggers the mind!

I have wondered just why the Lord has given me many such signs, and I believe that He wants me to spread His truth with a passion. “Go” as He said “and PROCLAIM the gospel to all nations” And this I will do! I am not unusual in this, because in these last days He is pouring out His spirit and His signs will get even greater as we approach the close of probation.

So please be aware of His speaking to you through many ways, such as dreams, signs, and people. Things are going to come your way from  the Lord, you must be on look out and BELIEVE He’ll speak to you. But don’t kid yourself, take a long look at your life.  Are you “obeying” His Commandments?  If so, you are indeed “loving Him” (1 John 5:3) “For this is the LOVE OF GOD, that we KEEP His Commandments, and His Commandments are not burdensome”

Let us go forth with FULL confidence in His love and power, amen.

    Thank you my brother. He promises to be with us, let us go forth and spread the news, amen!

  3. ShayM Says:

    WOW! Praise God! You have made me stop and think. I have been so preoccupied with completing my PhD and gaining leverage in my divorce, that I too have not been as close to Him as I ought to be. Thank you for the reminder. Thank God for you.

  4. godsloveandlaw Says:

    I am touched by your comment Shay. God works through people to reach people, glad he worked through me to reach YOU. Amen.

  5. Barbara Eileen Brown Says:

    I loved reading about the way that the Lord used the night light and the alarm clock to speak to you. It goes to show that He knows you Rob and He knew that you would act on it. May God continue to bless you as you have been a blessing to us!

  6. godsloveandlaw Says:

    Amen Barbara. Yes, He knows us better than we know ourselves. it is truly a blessing to know that he cares for us SO MUCH, that he remembers are each and every prayer (even if we forget!) Thank you my sister.

  7. thandi Says:

    Thank you for sharing this Rob.I don’t do ‘secular’ activities as such,but my studies take a lot of my ‘mental’ time.ie.I believe i’m spending too much time worrying about the possibility of not being able to pass all my subjects, rather than worrying about my salvation.Thank you for the reminder to make sure that my priorities are set correctly.

  8. godsloveandlaw Says:

    Yes, Thandi, it is very easy to “lose track” of “being on track”. Glad the Lord is working through me to reach people as yourself. Keep your focus, and if you can request a prayer similar to mine, such as having him remind us always, He’ll be faithful to do so. God bless.

    Indeed, the Lord is so deeply involved with us, down to every small detail, it’s been my experience too.It gives us tremendous assurance of His love and refreshes us with a new sense of awe, that we tend to lose in everyday race! One thing I wanted to share, to encourage everyone. It’s this: ‘It is not you who are to do that which he (The Lord) pleases:but, “It (My Word) shall accomplish that which I please.”You are not to read or hear the word of God, and say, I must do that, I will do that. You are to open the heart to that word, that it may accomplish the will of God in you…The word of God itself is to do it, and you are to let it.”Let the word of Christ dwell in you”(Jones,Review and Herald,Oct 20,1896)
    Faith – is heart appreciation of the cross.The love response from our hearts will lead to selfless devotion to Christ which alone is true obedience. “Agape is the fulfilling of the law”(Rom 13:10)
    ‘Everything depends on the right action of the will…You cannot change your heart, you cannot of yourself give to God its affections: but you can choose to serve Him…thus your whole nature will be brought under the control of the Spirit of Christ; your affections will be centred upon Him, your thoughts will be in harmony with Him'(Steps to Christ,p 47)

    Thank you Brother In Christ

    Well i read your post and i was thinking about that.
    You Know brother why it happen?
    Its because Jesus still need you and Love you.
    And by the way you still have unfinished job.

    Remember when God said ” I will never forsake you or leave you?

I LISTEN TO CHRISTEN MUSIC RADIO,(I LIVE ALONE SO IT’S ON 7/24 FOR THE CO.) AND I GET SAD SOMETIMES CUZ EVEN THE SONGS R FULL OF ERROR. I CAN’T HELP BUT BE GLAD CUZ SOME DO FIND SALVATION BECUZ OF A CERTAIN SONG BUT THEN I REMEMBER THAT MANY WILL STOP AT JUSTIFICATION. SO FEW IT SEEMS DON’T GET THAT IT IS A PROCESS. I’M SURE THAT WAS WHAT E G MEANT WHEN SHE SAID SO FEW REALLY UNDERSTAND SALVATION AND IT’S INTRICASIES. THAT IS NOT A VERBATUM QUOTE BUT I’M SURE U NO OF WHAT I SPEAK. (KIND OF GOT DISTRACTED BY A SONG.) I JUST WANTED TO SAY THAT I’M GONNA KEEP ON PLUGGIN AWAY. THANKS TO U. MAY GOD BLESS UR MINISTRY ABUNDANTLY. AND MAY THE SPIRIT RISE IN U TO BREATHE ON UR WORDS IN JESUS NAME AMEN.

  18. Rob Says:

    Thank you Cynfree. God desires that we “support” each other and strengthen each other and that is my goal with this site. When I do that I am fulfilled with joy to be used by Him. But you are right “so few” really know Him and walk with Him. Even in my own church I see such weakness and wayward ways, it saddens me. But nevertheless we can only tell them and warn them. Stay secure my dear sister! He wants you always!
