I sometimes settle too easily for “borrowed light” positioning myself in the shadow cast by another’s revelation. But living from borrowed light is less than God intended because borrowed light casts a shadow offering partial not personal revelation. This undermines the journey of discovery and can’t offer authentic authority and personal victory. I must behold Him if I am ever to be like Him. I must abide in and live from the revelation He has strategically invited me to. Personal revelation offers heavenly wisdom that supersedes human capacity and lifts us to a higher realm of affection and authority. Without it we are easily seduced by lesser voices and sadly sometimes just an echo.
Ez 43v2 And behold, the glory of the God of Israel came from the way of the east. His voice was like the sound of many waters; and the earth shone with His glory
