We must work the works of Him Who sent Me and be busy with His business while it is daylight; night is coming on, when no man can work. John 9:4
It’s so good to see dawn breaking forth to usher in a new day. Daylight brings with it the sense of newness. New beginnings, new start, new opportunities, new strength, new ideas, new focus, new hope, new thoughts, new purpose, new mercy, new perspective, new passion, new vision, new genesis.
It’s a new day and new blessings are coming my way!
Jesus said, in the scripture reference above, that day provided an opportunity for us to work. An opportunity that we no longer possessed when the night came. He said we must work while it is day, meaning, this opening of time would not always be available for us. This scripture reminds us that something’s are under time restraint. If we walk away from our work today with an attitude of “I will get to that tomorrow,” we may be surprised to find out that while we hesitated and procrastinated the night came. The window of opportunity open to you today may not be available tomorrow.
Daylight is synonymous with vision or sight. Daylight has a certain positive ambience about it. It provides a true picture of what’s before us. When light is available we can work more proficient and efficient on the task at hand. God created the light and commissioned it to break forth in the midst of darkness. He needed light to be available while He worked on the rest of creation. God worked in the light, creating all manner of good things for His glory!
Work implies effort.
· Activity in which one exerts strength or faculties to do or perform something.
Jesus instructed us that we cannot work in the night but only in the day. Our efforts are only effective when we exert them according to His will and His way. Whatever God has called you to do you must remember to do it while it is still day. Don’t let the Night fall on your Day. Don’t let the night breakthrough and have its way. You are the light shining bright, don’t let the night leap forward and block you way. There is much work in the Kingdom still needing to be done let’s recognize the time we have been allotted and work while the light is still on!
