Topic: Your Light Has Come [TREM Devotional 14 October 2019]
“Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you.” – Isaiah 60:1 NKJV
There is going to be a lot of conflicts, confusion, pressure and stress as we climax the age. But they will not come near you. Darkness shall cover the earth and gross darkness the people. People are going to get more evil! They are going to get into all kinds of things like we have never seen before. But your case is different because of the Light you carry.
The problem is that we have not leveraged on what God gave to us. Beloved, your salvation is a defence. Your salvation is a guarantee that all is well. It is a guarantee that you are not going to be stranded, no matter what. And all you are required to do is believe. All things are possible to him that believes.
The glory of the Lord is risen upon you. Darkness shall cover the people but you are not part of the people. You are a saint! “The Lord will arise over you. And His glory will be seen upon you” (Isaiah 60:2 NKJV) You know that the gentiles (the world) do not know spiritual things. The only way that they identify that God is with you is by what is happening around you.
Where there was no way, there will be a way. Where you failed before, you will succeed. Where doors had been shut before, they will be opened for you. Gentiles shall come to your light. You will not see reproach, shame or disgrace. You will not be embarrassed and you will not be ridiculed. The devil will not constrain you to the corner. Kings shall come to the brightness of your glory. The people you wanted to be introduced to will come by themselves to be introduced to you. Don’t worry! Others may be faster than you, that does not stop you. Others may have gone ahead of you, it will not stop you. No power will abort what God has said about you.
