60 “Arise, shine; for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord has risen upon you. 2 For behold, darkness will cover the earth and deep darkness the peoples; but the Lord will rise upon you and His glory will appear upon you. 3 Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. Isaiah 60:1-3
This whole world was subjected to the power of darkness until Jesus came. Since His arrival, light has appeared to all people. Many were downtrodden in darkness, not knowing what to do with their lives until the Lord came into the world.
Having received light from Christ Jesus, it is time to arise and walk in the glory of your Father. You cannot continue in the life of darkness as before. Jesus brought an end to the power of darkness over man. The quality of life that He brought was aimed at washing and polishing us to the glory of the Father.
16 The people who were sitting in darkness saw a great Light, and those who were sitting in the land and shadow of death, upon them a Light dawned.” Matthew 4:16
Every believer must live in joy. The prophet Isaiah spoke so powerfully concerning the light that God sent through Jesus into the world. Darkness resulted in many living their lives in poverty, sickness, and diseases, death, and shame. God created man with glory and honor until sin introduced a life that wasn’t of God’s plan for mankind.
We discover our true identity and worth in God’s light. The Father gave you a life of dignity and honor in His light. You may have been knocked down by the forces of darkness through deception, but, Jesus is saying to you, arise – your light has come – your glory is revealed. Arise, for, in Christ Jesus God has given you the light needed to walk out of the darkness.
God Is Light and In Him There Is No Darkness
For anyone to be in Christ, that person needs to be birthed by God. If you came out of God then you also came with the light.
5 This is the message we have heard from Him and announce to you, that God is Light, and in Him there is no darkness at all. 1 John 1:5
The nature of God is such that light hails from Him. It is how He expresses His glory. When the first man fell, he lost the light God gave him from the beginning. In the dark, there is no beauty. No wonder most of the things you see in the lives of those in the dark are not beautiful.
Just look at the expanse glory of the handiwork of God in the universe – His works are very beautiful because everything was done in the light. What you need to navigate this dark world is the light of God. Every child of God is in the world not to walk in darkness but to glorify God in His light Father. Jesus came and healed many of their afflictions because He operated in the light.
Refuse to walk anymore in the dark. Darkness can never have power over light. When you turn your light off, darkness automatically takes over. But today, I declare that your light will not be hidden. May you rise and walk in the glory of your light. Stay blessed
