When Lightning Strikes!

Facebook Twitter Pinterest Plusone Linkedin Stumbleupon


If you’ve ever experienced a lightning strike, you know that it is swift, powerful and very bright.  It’s quite an awesome sight to behold when a single lightning bolt releases several hundred million volts of electricity!    And when lightning strikes in your life it can feel almost as exhilarating and powerful, but with these added benefits:

It brings a flash of brilliance.  This often leads to an insight or breakthrough idea that had previously eluded you. This can lead to new approaches and innovative solutions.  In the same way that lightning shows up unexpectedly, these flashes of brilliance often show up when you least expect them.  Be sure to make notes of your ideas right away and commit to take action on them.

It ignites the moment of connection.  This is when things start to come together and God opens doors on your behalf.  Sometimes things just happen suddenly and unique God-opportunities are made available where previously there were none.  Many times these connections weren’t even on your radar and then you meet the right people at the right time and new resources become available.

It enlightens the path. Just as lightning can illuminate the darkest sky, clarity can be a beacon of light to a previously dark and confusing situation.  Sometimes it just takes that one split second and things come clearly into focus.  Clarity often calls for action, so be prepared to start moving forward with your new understanding and awareness.

It provides the spark of inspiration.  There may be an element of risk involved, but great ideas aren’t fodder for the fearful – they are fuel for the fearless.  Your inspiration might be too far outside of the box for some of those in your tribe, but there’s nothing inspiring about staying inside the box of comfort and familiarity all the time.  Don’t judge those who aren’t brave enough to go where you’re going.  Just keep reaching toward the fullness of your potential and you might end up being the inspiration for someone else, and that’s a good thing!

Spiritual Perspective:  David’s song of deliverance gives a clear picture of how God shows up on behalf of His people in 2 Samuel 22:13*, “Out of the brightness of His presence came flashes of lightning.” Your heavenly Father will come in a swift and powerful way to delivery you from the adversary of your soul.  God knows how to disperse the lies and confusion sent to entrap you and set you free to fulfill your purpose.
