Verse Of The Day : And the Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. Isaiah 60:3
Thought of The Day : Stop chasing after what God wants to bring your way and begin to seek after His kingdom purpose instead.
LISTEN : Light subdues darkness, just as grace subdues labour. Where light is, darkness vanishes, and when grace speaks unfruitful labour ends. Having been through a lot in the hands of different nations, God promised to uplift His people (Israel) no matter their predicaments. However, He wants them to think like winners and not losers; like victors and not victims. He wants them to acknowledge Him as their help in midst of troubles. He wants them to see beyond their present predicaments and rely on His grace. Firstl, He urged them to arise! That is, to rise; to stand, to be fixed and established. Secondly, He urged them shine! That is, to become light; to shine. The Bible says, “Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD has risen upon you.“ (Isaiah 60:1). They have been intimidated, mocked, humiliated and oppressed for so long, and God asked them to enforce their freedom and victory through Him. Therefore, they must stand above their dark moments and beam the light of the glory of God because He is on their side. And until then, they will keep chasing what God wants to freely give to them. As a matter of fact, where light refuses to shine darkness will dominate; and where darkness dominates pains would abound. My dear, shine the light! When God’s light in you is on, people would come to you; you would make a little effort with enormous results. You won’t chase goodness and mercy, instead, they will follow you naturally (Psalms 23:6). Our verse of the day says, “And the Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising.“ (Isaiah 60:3). Beloved, there is only one way to this, that is, to pursue after God (Matthew 6:33). Stop chasing things God wants to bring to you and begin to chase His will for your life intead. Be wise!
