Your Light Has Come
Isaiah 60:1 KJV Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee.
Every time the sun rises, it gives a reflective door, reflective windows, houses with reflective accessories and any reflective materials the opportunity to glow. Beautiful scenery is created because of these reflections with sparkles everywhere.
An encounter with the glory of God changes whoever it comes in contact with.
Moses was veiled because they couldn’t look into his shinning face as a result of his contact with the glory of God (Ex. 34:29-35).
Saul had an encounter with God’s glory and that was the beginning of his turnaround. Acts 9:3 KJV And as he journeyed, he came near Damascus: and suddenly there shined round about him a light from heaven:
Isaiah 60 verse 1a; Arise, shine; for thy light is come. “Thy light” here means that a light is peculiar to each person to reflect even though the sun of righteousness (glory of God) has risen for us all.
Reading further to verse 7 of Acts 9. The man who was journeying with him heard the voice but didn’t see the light. This is because the light was Paul’s light and not the other man’s. That’s why two friends will be in church and hear the same preaching but one will be converted and the other won’t. Many will be in the church and there will be a prophetic declaration claimed by all with a resounding “Amen”. And on the following Sunday, only one person will be the testifier for the prophetic declaration.
The glory of God isn’t like the sun that rises in the morning to set at night. It has risen to set no more. But the individual light comes at a God given time and by strategic spiritual positioning like he did for Isaac in Genesis 26:2. He also told Abraham to adjust himself by being blameless before Him.
Strategic Spiritual Positioning is key to Arise and Shine.
Let us pray: Father, position me for me to Shine.
