We all have a sphere of Light in that we are required to walk in that has been illuminated by Holy Spirit as God’s perfect will for our life, and we are not to try to illumine another’s walk by the light God gives us.
If one who has become affected by our light because God called them to walk in it that is God’s responsibility and not ours. We can never become another man’s Holy Spirit.
It is our place to walk in love balanced with grace and truth. If our “light” does not promote love, then it is not from the Spirit of God, but is a counterfeit, a religious spirit. Yes, they can tell you by your love. You are only required to walk in the light God gives you and in His perfect timing to receive it.
Many have destroyed other’s lives by trying to push their light upon others outside of His timing to do it. And the spirit behind that caused others to feel compelled either out of control or condemnation to walk in it. They didn’t have the faith or the maturity to receive that light, and many have even fallen away from the Lord because of it.
We must beware of the strategies of the enemy to steal, kill and destroy. Yes, he comes to rob our joy and peace and bring us under bondage of the law and legalism. What might be light for one might be just their own personal conviction that they are trying to push upon others.
We are only responsible to walk in the light God gives us and if we walk in grace, others will be able to partake of that light and grow.
Yes, grace is what enables us to walk in light. If we do it in our own strength, it becomes religion, filthy rags, that bring death. Walk in the light that Jesus brings for it will fulfill your life with His love and all the fruit of love that is peace, joy, gentleness, goodness, self control, patience, kindness, and faithfulness.
Without having faithfulness to walk in His love, we will never be able to please Him. Yes, we are only to walk in His “love light”.
“Walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, as an offering and sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma,” Ephesians 5:2.
“For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light for the fruit of the Spirit is in all goodness, righteousness and truth,” Ephesians 5:8-9.

Yolanda Ballard of At The Father’s Feet website, shares with you, the body of Christ, the words she’s received quietly sitting at the Father’s feet. I believe Jesus set the example for us to follow. Whenever He could He would come apart from the busyness of the world so that He could quiet Himself before the Father, for that is where He received direction and strength to carry out His will.
