STAY ATTENTION TO THE LIGHT OF AURORA
“If your heart is not righteous, ask God to touch you”
By: Apostle Valdemiro Santiago
Those who were friends in the past are no longer and the new ones, will they still be friends? But the Lord Jesus was, is and will always be your friend. Give Him your heart, your life, your ways. Proverbs 4:18 says that the path of the righteous is like the light of dawn that shines more and more until it is perfect. Vereda means a path that opens up, usually in the woods.
People without knowledge and resources know paths. Just is not necessarily the one who sins, because all have sinned, but the one who has a sense of justice and is inclined to the teachings of the Lord. The dawn is the period of the day between the end of the night and the beginning of daylight. The period that, when we wake up, is clearing and we do not see the sun, but even absent, we perceive the day. God says, through His servant, that my way is like the dawn. Even though it is still a little dark, I doubt anyone has any doubt that the day would be clear. Our path, our path, is like that light of dawn. Although there is no sun, it is already clear.
The point that God planned for us in Psalm 37 is our right to stand out like the midday sun. The higher the point of the sun, it is like the life that God wants to give to you and me. Sometimes we look at our life and don't see the sun, but the brightness of the sun, the strength of its light, has already made the darkness go away. You may not see the sun, but the dawn has already arrived for you, in a little while your life will be a perfect day. Even when we don't see the sun, we have to be confident that the day will be sunny. Where we are, the light already has effects. Perhaps in your life, you are in a phase where you realize the effects of the presence of the powerful God, aligning your path, but it still does not shine. Dawn is a quick moment, four in the morning you can still see stars, after five, you no longer need lights and, in a few moments, light is present, the sun fills the day. Life for those who fear and trust in God, wait and seek Him, who puts life in His hands, is like that. Satan wants to prove that the night is not over. Between night and day, there is the dawn, which is the certainty that the day is coming. Eventually, we have the impression that twelve o'clock at night is longer than twelve o'clock in the day. For some, life is already at the peak of noon, for others, night, for others, dawn. But for those who live at night, the dawn will arrive and it is a harbinger of the perfect day. The wicked are the most arrogant of men, because they imagine that they will not be caught, and with them there are those who feel untouchable, great. Everything belongs to God, nothing they do escapes His eyes. God's plan for man is for us to have a perfect day, but this is not mandatory, because it depends a lot on us. What often prevents us from receiving is thinking about small things and doubting what God gives us. We should be small, but not be concerned with small things. Saul worried about half a dozen donkeys while Samuel told him to worry about what God wanted for him, which was so great. And how many times are we concerned with things that are inferior, minuscule, close to what God has prepared for us. We must ask for a wise heart, of men and women of God, like the Lord's. We must ask God for a heart like Christ's. We must give our hearts to God every day and He will give us a new heart every day. Saul received the message given by God by Samuel and his heart was changed. All the signs appeared to him on the same day, because when our heart is changed, we see the signs of God at the same time. As verse 23 says, above all, we must guard our hearts. It means policing yourself, thinking good things and, when bad thoughts arise, cancel them out. The word says that if your eyes are good, your whole body will be luminous. All good things come from your heart. So don't want to judge or assume anything, just accept to shine, because what God offers is so much. Your success, your quality of life, basically depends on whether you trust it. That same Saul I mentioned earlier, when he received something from God, he swelled up and became someone who felt great and became so serious that he became the first suicide reported by the Bible. From a simple man, he became arrogant. This can happen to us, some kind of strange heart and the humble and understanding heart that we had, full of love and mercy, is taken away from us. God has a stock of hearts, if you ask for an understanding, humble heart, you receive it today. When you start to think you are bigger than another, you start looking up and down, you can ask God to change your heart fast. When you feel great and wronged, ask God to touch your heart. Sometimes we have reactions that are not pleasant for the Lord, so change the heart, which changed the heart, the thought changes and we see the
