When darkness overtakes the godly, light will come bursting in. (Psalm 112:4, NLT)
Everyone goes through seasons of difficulty or times when things just seem dark. During these challenging times, know that you are not alone. God has a plan to drive out the darkness—He will flood you with His light! Notice that in today’s verse it doesn’t say, “The light will come trickling in.” No, it says that the light will come bursting in! That means suddenly, you will see God’s goodness. Suddenly, you’ll be promoted. Suddenly, the answer will come!
If you’ve been going through a difficult time, get ready for the goodness of God in a new way. Know that His light is about to come bursting in! Get ready for breakthroughs. Get ready for promotion. Get ready for restoration. You may have had that problem for a long, long time, but today could be the day that it turns around. Suddenly, things can change! God wants His glory to be seen on you. He wants you to stand out in the crowd. He wants you to be so blessed that everyone around you can see His goodness on you! So keep standing, keep believing, keep hoping and keep declaring His Word because His light is going to come bursting in!
When I was 17, I didn’t get a chance to go to my own prom but that same year I was at an Essence event and this tall good looking guy comes up to me and goes “Oh my god, I’m a big fan of yours, you should go with me to prom.” ‘Dude, first of all like, who are you?’ We went through a whole resume. “I’m the number one high school basketball player in the world, my name is Kobe Bryant”. I still didn’t know who he was because [back] then I didn’t know much about basketball. I knew who Michael Jordan was but that was about it.
Next thing you know, Kobe flew my mom and I out. Made me feel like a queen. It was like royal treatment and then we went to prom. I just felt like a normal 17-year-old, it was so much fun, although it was cameras and media there, it still felt normal to be in a school with kids my age. We were dancing; it just felt real. I needed that..I really needed to experience that and I wouldn’t if Kobe never asked me.
