Dear Precious Friends,
I love this scripture and can remember singing my son Branson this song " Rise and Shine and give God the glory glory"... This scripture is our wake up call literally!
How are we letting His light shine in the midst of the darkness that surrounds us? Are we showing the hope we have in Him?
Jesus died and rose again to make this happen here and now! What purpose does light have if not to dispel the darkness? This is our calling. This is how the world will know that God is God. We are the light that leads the lost back home! We aren't supposed to wait until Jesus returns, because then it will be too late. We are to take hold of our birthright as sons and daughters of the Living God! Arise, and shine!
I love these words from Susie Larson:
"May the wonder of His love and the miracle of His redemption sweep us off your feet and ignite our faith once again. May we dare to look away from your discouragements and look toward your Deliverer who truly makes all things new. May your heart of faith beat once again for the promises God has made to you. May you pick up the cause of faith and march forward knowing God has your back, He's gone before you, and He's placed His hand of blessing upon your head (Psalm 139:5). Awaken to joy today! Embrace faith today! Pray like you have a God in heaven who hears you and moves when you pray...because you do! A blessed and beautiful day to you this day! "
Heavenly Father, thank You for sending Your Son to light my way and Your Spirit to shine within me! Fill me, Lord, that Your light may ever be seen in me. Guide my words and ways, that it may never dim! May others see you when they see me and what the incredible gift we have of Jesus.
In Jesus’ name, Amen!
Have a victorious day in the Lord!
