Arise, shine; for your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. (Isaiah 60:1, NKJV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Notice that todays verse doesnt say that the glory of the Lord is going to come on you one day. It doesnt say, Maybe when the economy gets better, when you graduate from college, or when you get that good break. No, it says Gods glory is already on you!
The word glory in the original language indicates that Gods favor, blessing and splendor is on you in a heavy way. Its something that is tangible and has weight. Think about it this way: You are not less than, intimidated or weak; you are heavy with Gods favor. You are dripping with Gods goodness. Your attitude should be, Theres no telling whats in my future! I am weighted down, not with burdens, not with problems. I am weighted down with the favor of God.
When you really understand that you are heavy with favor, then its easy to be heavy with expectation. Its easy to believe for big things when you know God has favored you in a big way. Its time for you to arise. Its time for you to shine. Let that sink down into your spirit today because its time for you to arise and shine because His glory, His favor is heavy upon you!
A Prayer for Today
Heavenly Father, I come to You today with an open and humble heart. I know that Your glory is upon me. I thank You for Your favor upon me, and I thank You for Your anointing power which breaks every yoke and moves me into freedom and blessing in Jesus name. Amen.
