Awaken To Your Light
“Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee” (Isaiah 60: 1).
Precious saint, in this month of Light and Dominion, by now you may have known that God is light and in Him, there is no darkness at all (1 John 1: 5). You have known also that Christ Jesus is your light who has come as was prophesied by Isaiah (Isaiah 60: 1). Christ introduced Himself to Saul of Tarsus in a blinding light on Saul’s way to Damascus (Acts 9: 3 – 4). Now Christ has made us the light of the world as we saw last week (Matthew 5: 14). All we need is to arise and shine for the glory of God to be seen upon us. Glory is a good thing; the Hebrew word interpreted as glory is “kabowd” and it means honour, abundance, riches, splendour, dignity, reputation and reverence. All these glorious things are in Christ and in His light. By awakening to your light who is Christ Jesus, these glorious things are bestowed upon you. My drive and passion is to see these things manifest upon believers in Christ in this generation. This is why I am so passionate about awakening us to our Light – Christ the King, become light in Him and shine in our world to transform it and make it a glorious place for His glory to be seen by the world around us and be attracted to Him.
See, darkness and its activities are the bane of our world today. Isaiah had prophesied saying, “For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and His glory shall be seen upon thee” (Isaiah 60: 2). Darkness has nothing good to offer you: many believers are seeking the glory in darkness. Why do you seek for the living among the dead? (Luke 24: 5). Why do you seek for the glory in darkness? Glory is not a product of darkness but a product of light and Christ is your light. Arise and seek Christ Jesus in prayer and live by His word, you will find glory abundantly bestowed upon you. It is written, “I heard the voice of many angels … Saying with a loud voice, Worthy is the Lamb that was slain to receive power, and riches, and wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing” (Rev 5: 11 – 12). Only Christ Jesus has been found worthy to receive all these things that the world is looking for. Satan the devil and his darkness have no idea of what glory is about, hence, they cannot offer you any. Do not seek for the living among the dead, you will not find Him there, for He is risen. Now arise with Him and certainly, His glory shall rest upon you, in Jesus’ name.
POINT OF ACTION FOR DEVOTION
May the Lord brighten your month and give you dominion over the challenges of this time as you are spiritually awakened to shine your light brighter and brighter in Christ Jesus: start with prayers and dig deeper in the word of God to see what Christ our example did as the Light of the world when He was here.
