Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. (Isaiah 60:1, NIV)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Are you going through a tough time today? Are you sitting on the sidelines of life? God is saying, Arise and get back in the game. If a friend betrayed you, dont go through life lonely. Go out and find some new friends. The right people are in your future. If you lost your job, dont sit around complaining. Go out and find another job. When one door closes, God will always open another door. If youre facing a health issue, fighting that sickness, dont give up on life and start planning your funeral. Arise from that discouragement!
When God sees you do your part, He will do His part. He will give you a new life. That means He will restore your health, give you new opportunities, new relationships. He will give you a new perspective. You will see that even though its painful, it is not the end. Even though it was unfair, it is not over. There is still life after the sickness, life after the divorce, life after the bad break. A full life is still in front of you. Today, arise and let Gods glory shine all over you!
A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for Your grace and mercy on my life. I choose to rise and put my trust in You. I choose to get back in the game. Thank You, Lord, for accomplishing Your purposes in my life in Jesus name. Amen.
