Shining As Stars

Key Verse

And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.” Daniel 12:3

Text — Daniel 12:1-3


Stars are natural lights that God has blessed us with. The star is like a diamond that glitters. The stars are so many that it is impossible to count them. Yet God knows the number of the stars because He made them all. Stars are made to shine and since creation they have been shining at night, even to give light in darkness. Like the stars, God has made you to shine in every area of your life.

Spiritually – You are called to surrender your life to Jesus and stand out in the midst of the corruption and darkness in the world. You are also to save souls so as to shine as stars and also receive crowns with stars at the end.

Academically – God has designed you to excel, be above only and enjoy good success.

Socially – It is the desire of God that you become a shining example for others to see and glorify God. It is in your hand to enjoy all that God has provided for you. Surrender your life to Christ, trust Him and obey His word. Your life will shine as stars forever.
