From the heart of God:


Let your light shine. Don’t ‘hide’ Me. 


When you are afraid to shine and don’t want to be ‘seen’ or are afraid to speak the truth of My love, that’s what you are doing.  You are not just hiding yourself or protecting yourself like you may think. You are actually hiding Me and stealing My glory.


You are the light of the world.

A city set on a hill cannot be hidden; nor does anyone light a lamp and put it under a basket, but (they put it) on the lampstand, and it gives light to all who are in the house.”


Let your light shine before men 1that they may see your good works AND 2glorify ME! (Matthew 5:14,15,16)


If you refuse to shine,

you steal an opportunity to glorify My name.


I came as the light of the world and then call you ‘the light of the world.’  Let Me shine through you.
