"A Light in a Dark Place"

For some reason this morning I was led to paint a black background instead of working on the usual white canvas.  As I was laying and spraying colours onto the background I knew that this painting was to be called "A Light in a Dark Place".  Immediately I thought of the scripture in 2 Peter 1:19
And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts(NKJV)

The prophetic word shines light.  Jesus, the day star is arising in the hearts of His people.  God is causing us to bud and blossom like the lily.  I hear him saying "lift up your heads like the blossom reaches toward the sun".  His light shines like a lamp in a dark place and he is infilling us with His marvellous light.  Jesus is arising in our hearts and we can rejoice.   These two following scriptures speaks to me about the restoration of His people with fruitfulness.
Hosea 14:5
I will be like the dew to Israel;
He shall grow like the lily,
And lengthen his roots like Lebanon
Malachi 4:2. 
But to you who fear My name
The Sun of Righteousness shall arise
With healing in His wings;
And you shall go out
And grow fat like stall-fed calves(NKJV)

Jesus the "Sun of Righteousness" is restoring His people and He is revealing His glory.  The Lily's beauty and aroma exemplifies Christ.  He is that sweet smelling aroma and he desires for us to become the fragrance. 
By the way when I photographed the painting this morning I was amazed that the sunlight shined upon it for a split second and it was illuminated.  It became brighter than it actually is for a moment and I knew God was showing me a special sign. 
Love and blessings
