The Glory of the Lord Has Risen
August 7, 2020
Sometimes when I wake up in the morning there is a song that keeps playing over and over again in my head. This morning I heard this song:
"Arise, shine for your light has come, And the Glory of the Lord has risen upon you. For darkness has covered the earth, And darkness has covered the people. But the Lord will rise upon you, For the Lord has risen upon you, And you shall wear His Glory, And you shall bear His Light. Arise, shine."
The words for this song come out of Isaiah 60:1-19.
John 8:12 (KJV)
12 "Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, I am the light of the world: he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life."
When you receive Jesus into your heart, the light of Christ shines into the darkness of your soul. It is then that you can finally get this clear view, or receive a vision, of who you really are now that you are a child of God. You find purpose for your life. You find true peace in your life. You really begin to live life to its fullest.
1 John 1:5-7 KJV
5 "This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.
6 "If we say that we have fellowship with him, and walk in darkness, we lie, and do not the truth:
7 "But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the blood of Jesus Christ his Son cleanseth us from all sin."
Father, as we walk through this year of 2020, and as everything is coming into the light and being exposed, or become visible out of outer darkness, let Your glory shine upon us as we give You praise. In Jesus' name, Amen.
Blessings on the journey, and remember the best it yet to come.
