Topic: Arise And Shine [December 13, 2016]
For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, that the tender branch thereof will not cease, (Job 14:7)
To arise means to get up, stand up, rise up while to shine means to reflect the glory of God in your life.
Sometimes, the troubles of life throw you to the ground. It may even result to becoming a mockery. But child of God, if troubles of life have tossed you and thrown you to the ground, there is a divine mandate to you today, to stand up and get up from the down side of life. Do not remain there.
For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, it will sprout again, that the tender branch thereof will not cease, (Job 14:7). Rise up from your distress, pain, dejection and rejection. Get up. Refuse to remain on the ground! It is your time to shine. It is your new season.
Do not give up. Do you know that the best is within the worst? Do you know that your light shines brightest when the night is darkest? No matter how dark your night is, your dawn must break. Arise, shine!
