Rise and SHINE

There is work to be done…
sitting idly by is not an option…
if you are a child of God.

You are going to encounter the enemy…why not be working for HIM when it happens?

Doing what HE has laid on your heart…

afraid?  I’ve been there…still visit–but I determine not to stay.

He won’t ask of us anything that HE can’t or won’t equip us to do.

Isaiah 59:19(b)-21; 60:2 “When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the LORD shall lift up a standard against him.  And the Redeemer shall come to Zion, and unto them that turn from transgression in Jacob, saith the LORD.  As for me, this is my covenant with them, saith the LORD; My spirit that is upon thee, and my words which I have put in thy mouth, shall not depart out of thy mouth, nor out of the mouth of thy seed’s seed, saith the LORD, from henceforth and forever.  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.”

When you think…something is beyond you….remember WHO is going to shine….not you…but HIM!  It’s not beyond HIM.  The GLORY OF THE LORD will shine upon YOU!  Don’t fear….

Settle it.  Once and for all.  Take His hand.  Shake off the feelings of “I can’t”…and set your jaw…gather up your courage….and follow after Him.

THROUGH His power and strength—(remember the previous blog?) WE CAN DO ALL THINGS that HE has called us to do!

One response to “Rise and SHINE

  • Karen

    Amen! Too many times I have “set my jaw” in stubbornness…and not the good kind, either, so I thank you for this powerful reminder of working for Him while the day is still light…

    And every time I see or hear Isaiah 59:19, I have to share what a pastor told a while back…

    One of his professors had told him that is was discovered that in the original manuscript of this scripture, the “comma” was misplaced in the first line. Instead of coming after the word “flood”, it originally was between “in” and “like”…and then the pastor read the scripture that way…

    When the enemy shall come in…like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him……the NIRV version says it this way: “The Lord will come like a rushing river that was held back”…Hallelujah!

    I don't even need to tell you that when the preacher said these words…the Spirit fell and we just had ourselves a “good old time” worhshipping God!

    Love you, Angie! May the Lord continue to bless you and Jeff!
