What amazing days to be living in! I do not say that with eyes closed to some harsh realities of life. But Isa 60:1-2 (my paraphrase) says that it’s time for us to shine because the glory of God has risen upon us in the midst of deep darkness! It’s in the midst of deep darkness that our light is so radiant. In eternity ‘this little light of mine’ won’t be seen because of the blinding brightness of God’s glory that will illuminate the heavens. It’s only in ‘deep darkness’ or on this earth that His light on us will be so evident and radiant! What an opportunity we have in this life! We are that bright city set on a hill, blazing for all to see the hope of Jesus!
So do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good. Be encouraged and strengthened by His might! Keep running your race with eyes wide open. See the harvest fields that are ripe and hear his voice beckoning you into them! God is moving! There have never been more ‘born again’ believers on planet earth than there is today!
Rise and shine! Your light has come! And the glory of the Lord has risen upon you!
