Year of Light:
Year of light is what 2021 should be christened. The notion behind tagging 2021 the year of light is apposite and should be accepted to be so! This is coming from the backdrop of the monumental damage the previous year (2020) has caused in the world. It is obvious that people’s life was affected negatively in their businesses, family structures, national policies etc. There was so much pandemonium and confusion in the world. Instantly there was lack of direction in the scheme and system of the world. The implication of this is that darkness has besieged the world. Surely, in the presence of darkness, no one has direction and nothing started will be completed.
The reality that stirred on the surface is that no nation of the world recorded any meaningful progress economically and hence it also affected them politically. Therefore, it could be apposite to call the year 2020 the year of darkness besieged the world. Apparently, the cure for darkness is nothing but light. In the presence of light or the arrival of light terminates the existence of darkness. We should from the spiritual perspective call out light to come into existence and cause the darkness of 2020 to vanish. The bible puts it this way:
“Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee: and the light shall shine upon thy ways.”
Year of Light Establish In Christ:
The above quotation says we should decree a thing, and the resultant effect is that light will shine on our way. So in the presence of darkness we call forth light and it will shine. Therefore, 2021 is the year of light and in the year of light, every unfruitful works of darkness is exterminated. Let’s see how Apostle Paul puts it in the book of Ephesians below.
“For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light: (For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;) Proving what is acceptable unto the Lord. And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”
Notice that 2021 cannot be the year of light if we refuse to pronounce it so. The only way to pronounce and establish 2021 as the year of light is by declaring the word of God over it. The bible puts it this way in the book psalms below:
“The entrance of thy words giveth light; it giveth understanding unto the simple.”
The word of God to declare is nothing but Jesus Christ. It is only from Jesus that light can emanate and if light does not emanate it means Jesus is not there. Let’s see what Jesus declared about Himself below:
“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”
Jesus Is That Light:
Jesus said He is the Light of the world. It implies that light will only shine in the world if Jesus is there and His absence means the absence of light. However, if there is darkness and there are people who are Christ, it means that light will shine through them to the world. No matter how thick the darkness, those who are Christ will not stumble in darkness because they are light carriers. This is factual because, those in Christ always walk in the Light and as a result they do not lack direction. Let’s see the book psalms below:
“I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.”
Also let’s see Isaiah below;
“And thine ears shall hear a word behind thee, saying, This is the way, walk ye in it, when ye turn to the right hand, and when ye turn to the left.”
The above quotations are full assurance to the man that is in Christ that he or she lacks no direction even in the presence of darkness in the world. Why the believers should declare and make 2021 year of light is because of the benefits of the presence of light. If 2021 is the year of light it means the following will become the order of the day in it.
“(For the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness and righteousness and truth;)”
The fruit of light which is the spirit is in all goodness, and righteousness and truth. It means the presence of light brings in goodness, righteousness and truth. Therefore, we implore you to kindly join us to declare 2021 the year of light!
