And there will be no night there—no need for lamps or sun—for the Lord God will shine on them. And they will reign forever and ever.
—Revelation 22:5 NLT
No more night.
No more struggle.
No more pain.
No more fear.
No more need for light to dispel the darkness, because there is no darkness.
He shines when selfishness is no more.
He shines without the world’s tarnish—when there is nothing to dispel His brilliance.
This is not only for then. This is His wish for me now.
If I allow.
The veil has been removed.
The Lord shines always, but I receive what I allow.
His glory is not only for then, but also for now.
From glory to glory, He calls me.
So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image.
—2 Corinthians 3:18 NLT
