Light shines the brightest when it’s dark!
In the middle of a crisis it can be tempting to hold back. It can be tempting to stay silent. It can be tempting to get so caught up in the news, and everything going on around us that we push purpose aside. It can be tempting to wait until everything’s calm, and the darkness subsides to do what the LORD is calling you to do
but today, I believe the LORD is saying…..
Arise daughter, arise son! SHINE. Go where you’ve never been. Do what you’ve never done. For even in the darkness I’m STILL the GOD who shines bright. I’m STIll the God who takes care of you. I’m STILL the GOD of peace. I’m still the GOD who gives joy in what seems like a hard situation. I’m STILL the God who gives comfort. I’m STILL the God who delivers. I’m STILL the GOD who reigns!
For even in the darkness, yes, I’M STILL HE! The one who answers! The one who hears you when you call on me. Lift up your eyes to me! The one who WAS, IS, AND IS TO COME! It’s settled! The case has been closed! Besides me there is NO OTHER!
NOW IS THE TIME TO DO IT!
NOW IS THE TIME TO BELIEVE FOR IT!
NOW IS THE TIME TO WALK INTO IT!
For now is NOT the time to shrink back, but NOW, says the LORD, is the time to GO FORTH!
GO FORTH IN POWER
GO FORTH IN LOVE
GO FORTH IN PEACE!
BE NOT AFRAID!
