“Arise, Jerusalem! Let your light shine for all to see. For the glory of the Lord rises to shine on you.” Isaiah 60:1
What is it that distinguishes the children of God from the children of the world? It is the glory of their God that is risen upon them. Once you have experienced God’s glory, you cannot be the same. It releases you from every bond and every chain that entangles you.
When you experience God’s glory, you must arise. You must arise above every spirit of fear, anger, unforgiveness, jealousy, envy, malice and the like. The enemy has no hold on a child of God who has experienced His glory.
God’s glory enables you to shine for Him everywhere you go so that men would know who Jesus is. Each person experiences the glory of God in a unique and different way. Your experience with God will allow your light to come to you in a way that is tailor-made for you. Don’t miss ‘your’ light. Jesus is the Light of the world but He is also your personal light. Allow Him to come to you and as He comes, He brings His glory.
In His glory there is everything you need to live the life of Christ. Let Him come in. Let Him cover you with His glory. Then and only then, will you be able to arise and shine in this dark world.
Lord, I need to shine for You more. Please visit me today and touch my heart so that I can experience Your glory in a new way. Thank You, Lord, for making provision for me to receive You into my life on a continuous basis. I love You Lord and I will let Your glory be risen on me today. Amen.
