There is a moment which comes at dawn when the lights which illuminate the path in the darkness no longer are needed and the streetlights which have shone so faithfully through the night, though they may continue to shine, no longer play such a critical role.
It is the same in our walk with Christ. Each of us begins from a place of not knowing Jesus personally. Our only sign of Him is in the lives of those around us who do.
God says we are here to be His ambassadors – to shine forth His glory (the majesty of all He is) to those around us. We cannot be everywhere at all times. Even Jesus while living in His physical body on earth was only in one place at a time. So like lamposts and streetlights most of us stand day by day in the same place, where we may not feel useful and fulfilled.
God knows. He sees. And we are not forgotten, but in His service.
Lamposts cannot move on their own. They are placed; they are moved when the Master Builder decides it is time. Know you are being used where you are though how things are may not be your choice. You are on assignment for the King.
And as those who walk along the lit path of which you are a part experience the dawn of the Son in their lives, then they too become lamposts and vessels through which His Light shines along the way for those still in darkness.
Selah! [Pause and calmly think of that!]
