You Are Arising and Shining This Year

JAN. 13


Matthew 5:14-16 (GNB), Isaiah 60:1 (NKJV)
 "You are like light for the whole world. A city built on a hill cannot be hid. No one lights a lamp and puts it under a bowl; instead it is put on the lampstand, where it gives light for everyone in the house. In the same way your light must shine before people, so that they will see the good things you do and praise your Father in heaven. *Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.

Author PhotoIt is impossible to light a candle and hide it under a bowl. The candle will either burn through the bowl or the bowl will put out the candle. When you light a candle, you immediately look for a position to place it so that it can provide the light or impact that it was intended to provide. Child of God, the reason that many believers remain afraid and hide, instead of arising and shining, is because they are unaware of the fact that their candles have already been lit by God. They are ignorant of the fact that God has given them the light that their environment and every life and situation around them needs. All good and perfect gifts come from God, the Father of Lights (James 1:17). This same God confirms that He has given you light, gifts and abilities. He has strategically positioned you to shine. Take your rightful position as the light. You have all that it takes to bring hope, joy and solutions to the lives and situations around you. Once this realization dawns on you, it will cause you to launch forward by faith and begin to bring light, strength and solutions all around you.

This year, you must realize what you have and realize who you are in God. You have light and you are light. You are the hope. You are the carrier of the solution and you are the solution. The life of Christ in you is the light that men are looking for, John 1:4. Manifest the life of Christ that is in you. The sooner you realize who you are and what you have, the more you will arise and shine this year. This year, men will see your good works like never before and they will thank God because of you. Your light will shine like never before.

FAITH DECLARATION: Christ's life in me has given me the light that my world needs. This year, I am arising and shining and doing exploits.
