Arise, Shine

January 20, 2021

Isaiah 60:1-5 (ESV)

1 "Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.

2 "For behold, darkness shall cover the earth, and thick darkness the peoples; but the Lord will arise upon you, and his glory will be seen upon you.

3 "And nations shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.

4 "Lift up your eyes all around, and see; they all gather together, they come to you; your sons shall come from afar, and your daughters shall be carried on the hip.

5 "Then you shall see and be radiant; your heart shall thrill and exult, because the abundance of the sea shall be turned to you, the wealth of the nations shall come to you..."

When it’s really the darkest then the glory of Gods light shines the brightest. We have talked to several friends over the last few days and found that a lot of them are in total fear about what they think tomorrow is going bring. Let me say this to you, just the mention of Jesus's name can bring a calmness into the middle of a raging storm.

Testimony: My two brothers and I were caught up in a hurricane at Mertle Beach, South Carolina once. During the storm we were cooking steaks on the grill with no wind at all blowing across the back yard, but in the front yard trees were being blown over on top of cars. We were the only house in that whole subdivision that still had power throughout the entire storm.

We watched the "Back to the Future" series (1-3) as we joked about eating our Passover meal. The Lord's presence gave us peace, hope, and confidence that He was covering us with His hand of mercy.

Thank You, Father, for watching over us with Your favor and grace. Let Your glory, O Lord, rise among us. We ask this in Jesus's name, Amen.

Blessings on the journey, and remember the best is yet to come.
