“And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: And I will give him the morning star.” (Revelation 2: 26, 28)
With persistence and by our progressive triumphs, we gain dominion over our experience, influence in the world, and the very “morning star.” It is by our constancy with God, our devotion to the pursuit of good and life and love, that we are able to claim that true power that is ours by divine inheritance.
We can’t truly claim and feel the glow of that “morning star,” the very light of our day and control over experience, without that humble yearning, that overcoming that comes of seeing through the evils that would bring darkness, and utilizing the brilliant light that is God alone. Divine Love enforces its ideals, requires our obedience, and the very trials that would beset us are the victories, the wisdom gained, that gives us access to the morning star, the dawn breaking on our true and immortal life.
That light of Christ is ours as we patiently trust, loving our God and His good no matter what presentations the devil would try to build up before us. We gain our heavenly perspective by spiritual growth, by a willingness to lose our personal and willful sense of dominion, for that great control and security and power that comes of leaving life and its appearances to Mind and to the healthy sunlight of Truth. Stay honest and true. Stay faithful and expectant, and open up your heart to receive the morning star!
