”Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.
For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee”. (Isa 60: 1-2)
Notice that ”arise” is a command. In this context it means:
(i) To deal with sin. (Rom. 3:23; Rom.6:23) Sin cuts the glory short.
(ii) To awake (Isa 52:1)
(iii) To put on strength (Psa. 93:1)
(iv) To put on the whole armour of God (Eph. 6:11)
(v) To deal with dust (defilement) (Zech.13:1)
((vi) To deal with every bondage of captivity (Zech. 9:11)
(vii) To deal with dross (Prov. 25:4)
(viii) To be noised abroad (Isa. 52:15)
(ix) To position for supernatural abundance. (Isa. 60:5)
Let me say inter alia that things are not going to get better in the world, but they can get better for you. Jesus says:
”Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid”.(Matt. 5:14)
Stop procrastinating! The world is waiting for your manifestation. Arise shine!
Heavenly father, I thank you for the generous provisions you have made for my well-being here and hereafter. I appropriate the cleansing ministry of the blood of Jesus Christ God’s Son upon every facet of my life and receive forgiveness through the riches of His grace. Thank you so much Jesus.
Father, help me to be a true and worthy ambassador of Jesus Christ anywhere I go. Let your glory shine through me in Jesus Name.
I declare, by faithin the finished work of Jesus Christ that there is not enough darkness in the world to stop the glory of God from shining through you. Arise, shine, your light has come! Amen
