Isaiah 60:1-2 “Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the LORD will arise over you, and HIS glory will be seen upon you.”
HOW GREAT IS THIS VERSE! This is for NOW – June 2009, when so many people are experience deep darkness & the earth is feeling the effect of global recession. Interesting that the prophet needed to tell them that their light ‘had’ c0me. They couldn’t see it – Tell people they’ve got vbictory even when they can’t see it!
Now is the time for us to ‘think’ higher. Have ‘higher’, ‘nobler’ attitudes, to become positive in a negative world. When everyone is facing darkness we need to have a face of glory. People will see the glory of God upon those who decide to ‘Rise & Shine’.
We get energy & renewal from “doing”, not, not doing. But it’s not about doing just anything. It’s about doing the will of God. You know what it is because you love doing it. Fatigue comes from doing what you’re not called to do – you have no annointing for it. It drains you.
Our nourishment & health, vigour & strength comes when we do our gift. Some people are energized when couselling people, others fatigued. Some are energised ministering to children, others are not etc.
We are fatigued when we live with unfinished, unresolved projects & problems. We are engergized when we finish what we started. It’s important to only start things we know we can finish & once we start, go to the finish.
When we know we have been Sent by God to do what we do & to be where we are meant to be we will always be energized, even when we are tired, we still have HIS SENDING motivation within!
