Seek ye the Lord, all ye meek of the earth, which have wrought his judgment; seek righteousness, seek meekness: it may be ye shall be hid in the day of the Lord’s anger. Zephaniah 2:3.

The tempest is coming, and we must get ready for its fury by having repentance toward God and faith toward our Lord Jesus Christ. The Lord will arise to shake terribly the earth. We shall see troubles on all sides. Thousands of ships will be hurled into the depths of the sea. Navies will go down, and human lives will be sacrificed by millions. Fires will break out unexpectedly, and no human effort will be able to quench them. The palaces of earth will be swept away in the fury of the flames.

Disasters by rail will become more and more frequent; confusion, collision, and death without a moment’s warning will occur on the great lines of travel. The end is near, probation is closing. Oh, let us seek God while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near!—Messages to Young People, 89.

God forbid, that I should cease to warn you. Young friends, seek the Lord with all your heart. Come with zeal, and when you sincerely feel that without the help of God you perish, when you pant after Him as the hart panteth after the water-brooks, then will the Lord strengthen you speedily. Then will your peace pass all understanding. If you expect salvation, you must pray. Take time. Be not hurried and careless in your prayers. Beg of God to work in you a thorough reformation, that the fruits of His Spirit may dwell in you, and you shine as lights in the world. Be not a hindrance or curse to the cause of God; you can be a help, a blessing. Does Satan tell you that you cannot enjoy salvation, full and free? Believe him not.—Testimonies for the Church 1:159.

She has so much anxiety right now, but I and many of her other friends keep telling her we have a God that is still in the miracle-working business.

Dear Friends,

I was thinking about a little toy that Ronnie Jay had as a child and asked him if he still had it. He does. It was a globug that had given him so much pleasure when he was a little boy. Sure enough! That little globug still glows. It is amazing that it has kept its phosphorescence all those years.

Just as that toy globug is still glowing, so we are to do the same. Whatever our circumstances, we have the privilege of shining for Jesus. “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” Matt 5:14-16

The Great Light of the World desires us to reflect His Light to those around us who are in darkness. Isaiah prophesied, “For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.” Isa 60:2 Solomon observed, “the path of the just is as the shining light, that shineth more and more unto the perfect day. The way of the wicked is as darkness: they know not at what they stumble.” Prov 4:18, 19

That old song by Mary Bernstecher reminds us of our duty.
Send out a light as you go your way, A beacon of hope when shadows are gray; Send out a light that for Jesus will shine, Proving to others God’s mercy divine.
Send out a light, a radiant light, That will pierce thro’ the gloom Of someone’s dark night, Send out a light, a bright beaming light, Send out a light for Jesus.
Send out a light when your burdens press, And show to the world that Jesus will bless; Thro’ darkest sorrows and bitterest pain, Send out a light—it will not shine in vain.
Send out a light, a radiant light, That will pierce thro’ the gloom Of someone’s dark night, Send out a light, a bright beaming light, Send out a light for Jesus.
Send out a light unto those who stray, All heedless along destruction’s highway; Point them to pathways of purer delight, And let your life daily send out a light.
Send out a light, a radiant light, That will pierce thro’ the gloom Of someone’s dark night, Send out a light, a bright beaming light, Send out a light for Jesus.

May we put into practice Paul’s words, “That ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; Holding forth the word of life.” “For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk as children of light.” Phil 2:15, 16; Eph 5:8 May we always shine for Jesus is my prayer.
