Have you ever felt insecure?
I just always felt afraid, that if someone did not approve of me, I would lose their friendship and they would shun me. I always feared that with my family, my friends, and even my dance teachers. I’ve always kind of worshipped so people would think that I was totally confident, and I knew that God was inside me like fire! But, no. When I was at worship night on a mission trip with my dance company, I always felt afraid. So I started worshipping and I saw these two girls on the ground, crying. “Okay,” I thought, “I’m just going to pray over them.” I usually thought about what I was going to pray before I prayed it. But, that night, I said to myself, I’m just going to pray over them like God designed it to be. So, I began. I heard myself say, “God’s love is like a waterfall. We are in the waterfall and his water is drenching us. Even if we don’t want him, he is still loving us.” Even though I was praying that over them, it felt like God was praying it over me, too. It stuck with me. It’s been a year now and I still think about God’s love pouring over me like a waterfall.
I stumbled upon this Bible verse—it says, “You are the light of the world. You are a city situated on a hill that cannot be hidden.” (Matthew 5:14, HCSB) I was like, “Okay, God, you put that Bible verse in my life for a reason. I’m the light of the world. I cannot be hidden by satan. . .by anyone.”
And so are you. If you let God into your life, you will be a light. I mean, no weapon formed against you can prosper against God because He is living inside you. ( Isaiah 54:17, HCSB) So let your light shine!
