Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. Isa 60:1
Arise: 2013 Lord want us to Arise from our slumber. Eph 5:14 says “This is why it is said: “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.”. Let us decide and be committed to stand upright in our spiritual life. We will walk in righteousness this soon coming year by His grace.
Shine: The words says in Luke 3:9 “The ax is already at the root of the trees, and every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire” But Lord has given us one more opportunity and one more year, let us be useful for the building of the Kingdom of God. And those who see us let them see Jesus.
Our Time: This year is our time; Lord has great hope on us. The word says 2 Cor 6:2 “I tell you, now is the time of God’s favour” Yes; the Lord is with us his favour is upon us, the promise says Isa 60:1b “the glory of the LORD rises upon you”. It is not in distinct future year, but it is this New Year on, and all resolution taken will be fulfilled.
Prayer: In the ink of honour shall our name be written. In the river of courage shall all our fears be drowned. From the cup of grace shall we shall sip favour… We will be blessed beyond measure! Lifted beyond reproach…We pray in mighty name of Jesus. Amen.
