A Different Kind of Light Means There is Something I Must Do, By Karen Rowe


Good Morning Dear Friends and Readers,

If you missed any of the recent Hope in Today Ministries Devotions, I encourage you to go read.  Not because of anything I do, but that the Lord has given us inspiration to share with those who might want to read.

This is the 4th post according to that growing and deepening Revelation.  The more we give the more blessed we are to receive is beyond financial as a priority.  What are we sharing in the Spirit of the Lord?  When we don’t know what we ought to say, we can ask God to help us understand His meaning.  We can seek His Knowledge for understanding in the word of God, and then when the revelation comes, we share with those as the Lord gives us inspirations to share.

Then we learn more!  This is what is happening this morning.  And the inspiration is to share like this with you here at FGGAM, so that you can be a part of this Clear LIGHT with us in Jesus.

Jesus is the Christ, the True and Living Light!

Welcome to Hope in Today Ministries, Inc.

Daily Devotion to God’s Holy Word.

A Different Kind of Light Means There Is Something I Must Do, By Karen Rowe

In the Kingdom of God, there is only one light; and His Name is our Lord, Jesus the Christ.

In the earth, there is only one light; and its name is our sun.

Sometimes, we can see different kinds of light.   If a cloud goes over, the light gets dim.  The sun hasn’t changed, but when we see the cloud, the light is the same, but if it is cloudy, the cloud needs to move – not the sun.   In other words, when we don’t see clear light, we need to change something according to honoring who God is and of His Son, Jesus, who is the Word of God.


The sun is still giving its light.

If it is cloudy to us – like the clouds need to move, there is something we must do that is according to God’s Holy Word.  Faith moves according to what we believe honors God.  Then we see the light brighten!  The Light didn’t change – we did!


I had to ask God many questions yesterday! Part of my seeking was reading inspired word of God.  In other words, looking to read the verse God spoke to my heart.  I had to be still and wait.  Then, this morning God gave me and is continuing to give me my personal revelations; and it is my duty to share as God inspires me to share.  God loves you too!


I am sharing in part according to what I believe God is guiding me to share to be of a help to you too!  In the same way God has helped me, He will help you too!   God loves us this much!

Go deeper?


God’s Word is the Sword of the Spirit!

God’s Word is sharper than ANY  two-edged sword! (SEE Proverbs 5:3-13) (Anything that is alluring to human nature and that opposed God’s Word will cause harm to us.)

Did you catch that?  God’s Word is SHARPER THAN ANY two-edged sword!

God’s Word is a Sword! God’s Word is the Sword of the Spirit!


Take up God’s Sword (His Word) and make the change for Jesus.  Allow God to cut anything impure out of your heart.  And, Jesus will help you grow stronger to remove that sin from your life!

What is Life eternal?  Did you read that devotion?  Find out what Jesus said and Believe!  See John 17:3  … And this is life eternal, that they might know thee the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent.”

Go ahead and take time to mediate on this and look up the multitude of backup Scriptures for a deeper understanding *as the Holy Spirit speaks inspiration to your heart *in God’s thoughts.  God’s Word will help you discern your thoughts of God!

Please allow me time to finish this thought too.  And please go read the Hope in Today Devotions leading up to this Revelation!  I really believe if God leads you to it, He will be a help to you!  This is just what I believe inspired revelation that has helped me!

God’s Word will stay sharp!  No matter what we use our Sword of the Spirit (God’s Word) against, The Word of God will do what it says; and will remain sharp for anything we must use the Word of God against!  God’s Word is NEVER dull; and will never become dull!  God’s Word will do what God says it will do!

It comes back to our faith …

Now, Back to the LIGHT!

Hate is not of God.  Hate would dim your light.

Can you name something in your life that would dim your light?  God will help you if you ask Him.

Like a cloud goes over and the light gets dim … The light doesn’t change, but Hate, like a cloud would dim your light of God.

Pray, Lord I don’t see this clear.  God will work with us!  If you are willing to ask God for His help to change your mind about anything, God will work with you too!


God’s Wisdom doesn’t leave you dbl-minded about wanting to ask for His help to change your mind.  I have to change my mind all the time and every time God inspires me I am wrong.  God is always right!

Glory to God!  And, thank you Jesus!   When we get the true light, the light brightens for us to be the light of the world!  The world is in spiritual darkness (without the light of the knowledge of God), but the light has come for the world!


Do you know

and believe

in the love God has for you?

Do you know and believe in the love God has for you?  This is the 1st Miracle! When your heart hears the voice of the Lord whisper that thought to you that God loves you!  And you believe God!

Thank you Jesus for all you have done for us!  All because God so loved the world, he gave Jesus to be all anyone needs to see & know the light of God; and to be saved by grace through faith!  ***SEE:  Eph 2:8-9..

In Matthew 5:14-16, God’s Word says, “Ye are the light of the world…”

Is there any wonder why the Bible is so questioned without change?  The enemy of God doesn’t like the light, because the light exposes evil.  The light expose the enemy who comes to steal, kill and destroy.


Jesus tells us in John  10:10 why the devil comes and why Jesus come.

Let’s include that:

The Bible says in John 10:10, “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”


Thank you Jesus!  I believe!

Will you begin with opening your Bible to read Hebrews 4:12, which reads, “For the word of God is quick, and powerful and sharper than any twoedged sword, …. and is the discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.”


There is more!  Go get it!

Continuing on ….

Jesus is the Light of the world.  If there is any dim or darkness, it’s not Jesus.   We need to do a self-examination (each must say, I must examine myself) according to God’s Word to change something in our heart *whatever God wants to take out of us; God’s word is sharp enough to cut it (sin) out without harming us!

The Light doesn’t change.  God’s Word doesn’t change.  We must change.

God’s word has no blunt edge; it is sharp all the way and throughout; and able to cut out sin and doubt; fear; whatever God wants to take out of us.  God’s Word will not harm us; it is just that sharp!


When understanding becomes clear Light, it is the light in the darkness to know what we must do.  The Bible teaches us in the 119th Division of the Psalms and verses 105-112, “Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto my path….quicken me, O Lord, according to thy word …, and teach me thy judgments … my soul is continually in my hand:  yet do I not forget thy law …. err not from thy precepts …. thy testimonies …. are the rejoicing of my heart …. I have inclined mine heart to perform thy statutes alway, even unto the end”


Is there something you need to change to grow in the Light of Christ?

The Light is the same, but if our sight becomes cloudy, we need to change something for the glory of God.


The Bible tells us what pleases God.

The Bible tells us what opposes God.

Jesus pleased God; and faith pleases God.  It is impossible to please God without faith.  And faith comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God. The Word of God will change our hearts.  And, when light comes in the darkness, we can know that darkness is just the absence of light.  And come to the life in the light of God.

Praise God!

Like a cloudy day, when the Holy Spirit moves in our hearts with the Word of God, it is active and effective! God word will do what it says.  Our faith trusts and believes to do as God’s Word says; and Jesus will strengthen your heart to accomplish God’s will be done in you too!

Who is the word, but Jesus; and how did the word become flesh for us, but of God!  Jesus never blamed us!  Jesus tells us in Christ, we are the Light of the world (Mt 5:14-16).  But how can we be a light, if the light is not in us?


Our circumstances don’t change God.

Doubts and fear cloud our Light.  But our doubts and fear cannot change God.

Ask Jesus to help you believe!

The Bible says in 2 Timothy Chapter 1 and Verse 7:”For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”

Believe God.

God’s Word is the Light to the lamp!  We are the lamp!  God’s Word is the fuel to the lamp!

Fuel up!  And, show Jesus how grateful you are to him, and for His sacrifice for you, and, be the light for God’s Love God has for the world!

God’s Word is not a form of religion.  God in us is the Word of Truth.  God in us is the Lamp.  God is the Light we shine for His Glory!


We are the lamp.  A lamp is born in us, like a baby is formed.  The egg is activated by the Word of God …There is an implantation, like when fertilization happens and a child is formed in a womb!  We are reborn in the spirit of Truth, when we believe the Word of God we hear.  The Word enters our heart and we believe God, become spiritually alive and begin to grow in our knowledge of Christ!   Knowing nothing to learning everything God knows we need to know.  In measure, not to harm, but to walk in life and live!   There is a food for nourishment …Jesus is the bread of Life; Jesus is the Word become flesh so you can overcome too!

God’s word is the Light.  We are the lamp for Jesus.  Let your lamp be trimmed and burning.  Clean out hatred; and whatever else God wants to take out of us, so that He can make us prepared for greater things that we can see.


God goes before us. God is with us!  Jesus loves us!

God is fueling our lamp.

*IF we don’t have God’s Word, we don’t have the power.


We hope this is a blessing to you and all who might read.


Love in Christ,
Karen Rowe

Meet Karen: Hi, I am blessed, by God's good grace and because I know Jesus, I am blessed. I choose to be blessed, because I have a choice set before me and I refuse to look down. I trust God and I know and believe in the love God has for us. I have overcome difficulties; and I am blessed by the grace of God alone. If I have written about it, then I have felt the pain of it in some way, and to some degree. Did you know that Jesus has felt your pain? This is why I write. By God's grace I can identify; and tell you honestly, yes there is hope in anything and everything that you are facing today! Jesus is our Hope! He is the Truth, the Way and the Life. I am married a wonderful man, Robert Rowe; I love my husband and he loves me; and we have been married for 28 years. Together, we have been blessed with a wonderful daughter, named Amanda who is college now; and a wonderful son, named Daniel who is growing up well and soon to graduate elementary school. We work together and by God's grace we run our own business called PSI. We have a pastor over our ministry and over our business and also we depend on him for advise in our family. We have 2 dogs, 4 horses, 2 cats and love to spend time outdoors by the water and by campfires ... that is it seems when we can find time away from life's busy schedule. I love to write because it helps me learn more about God. And, I am driven by a passion from a love that God has put in my heart to share from my experiences and struggles, as I gain understanding in God’s Word to know how effective and powerful God is over our every situation! I share with you so you can know that you are not alone in your struggles. The same God who helps me and my family, is your help and shield as well! Life is not always easy, but it is possible –I like to share the difference that following Jesus makes in my life. And, I love to share God's patience and mercy and love that is with me! I am not perfect, but am experiencing God sanctify me through and through with every mistake I make; and yes, overcome in Christ! Life is not just about the successes; life on this earth is also about the troubles we overcome to discover what God has hidden in our faith to find! Troubles are more a challenge to grow in our faith ... It is not easy, but in the end the grace of God we discover is worth experiencing God in the midst. By Grace, I have discovered Jesus is Peace and He is my Joy and Wisdom from Heaven. God is our Provider and Healer and Creator, who is our help and shield over all things. By grace, I have experienced a nearness to God through my faith in His Son! We are well forgiven by God; and well blessed when we know and believe the love that God has for us. To say, "all is well with my soul" is a powerful knowledge to understand and experience. I sense God's desire for you to know His love for you and how deep His love for you is that He has SO loved you; God gave you His Son. God loves you right now just as you are! There is so much to learn! I believe that as we learn from God, we are God’s gift to each other. It is all God’s story –and for His glory; and God has SO loved us. I love to paint the vision that God has given me about a Father’s love –that God wants you to dream again and visualize His love for you! In God’s eyes, there’s more to life than we see; and in a world that sometimes misrepresents and misunderstands God and love; God wants you to have the courage to dream His dream and see His vision of a Father’s love for you! Many years ago, I prayed to God, “How can I tell a million people what I know about Your Son?” God showed me I had a gift of a ministry about God's Love; and He called it Hope in Today! I write to please God and I write to encourage you; and I write to spend quiet time with God. All because of this love that God has first shown me! I need Jesus –and my life is about my relationship with God. And, every blessing begins with Him! Love in Christ, Karen Rowe, Director Hope in Today Ministries, Inc.
