“Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon you.”
Isaiah 60:1, NIV
Today, God wants to exceed your expectations! He has amazing things in store for you. He wants to take you places that you’ve never dreamed and do things in your life that you’ve never imagined. His glory is rising upon His people which means things are going to fall into place so that you can accomplish what He has placed in your heart. Even the hidden dreams that you’ve given up on, God has not given up on. He is going to do exceedingly abundantly above and beyond all you could ask, think or imagine. Now is the time to arise and shine in Him.
Be aware, your mind may try to talk you out of it, but if you’ll listen with your heart, this truth will resonate on the inside of you. Don’t let discouragement hold you back or keep you down. Rise up every morning and declare, “Today is the day that the Lord has made.” Choose to rejoice in Him. Choose to expect His goodness. Choose to arise and shine and receive every spiritual blessing He has in store for you!
Prayer for Today:
“Father, I come to You today with an open and humble heart. Thank You for choosing me and for preparing a bright future for me. I will arise and shine. Let everything I do bring honor to You. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.”
