I would encourage you today that the coming days in the Lord are the finest hours of the church of Jesus Christ. He is calling and empowering His glorious church to AWAKEN, to ARISE, AND TO SHINE in this world with the GLORY OF THE LORD. That GLORY is CHRIST FULLY ALIVE IN YOU.
Yes, great darkness will increase but much more will the grace and glory of the Lord abound. His church will shine brighter than ever with His great love and power. The world will know we are genuine Christ followers by our fervent love and kindness for one another. The Kingdom will come through us, His people. Heaven will come to earth through us, His church. His Divine plan will be done among all nations and people, through us, His body on the earth. The whole creation is groaning now waiting for the manifestation of the Sons of God. Those who are lead by His Spirit are the Sons of God.
Because of His great love for us we are being shaken so that what remains is truly of His Kingdom and we can come into the fullness of the stature of Christ on the earth. The Kingdom of God is not shaken, not lacking, and will endure forever. It is the Fathers good pleasure to give us the Kingdom.
Therefore church, we must stand only in His righteousness freely God-given to us by faith in Christ. There is power released in His righteousness. We must encourage ourselves and pursue to live inwardly in His rest and peace. The promise to us is that the joy of His presence will always be our strength. We can always experience His power through praise and thankfulness in all things. There is a truth we secure deep within that ALL things are working together for us to be conformed into His image. We determine to keep the faith knowing it is a good fight with present and eternal rewards.
We are called to AWAKE to God’s vision that the knowledge of the Lord will cover the whole earth as the waters cover the seas. Know and see that you are a chosen people, a love gift to Jesus, a treasure of God, and a joint heir with Christ, who has been given a seat with Him now in heaven, that you might experience His authority and power over all the power of the enemy. You have an indwelling eternal HOPE that anchors you into His safe harbor to ARISE and SHINE through any storms you face.
Position yourself now for a great outpouring of God’s fire and glory, which will flow with rivers of great favor, abilities, strategies, special empowerments, assignments of supernatural results, and miraculous provisions. Move against all odds for God is with you. Stand courageously in the face of the giants that oppose you and proclaim that you will take the land for God. Pray with no doubt that all heaven is coming to answer your prayers. Know you have been rescued from the powers of darkness. They have already lost and you are more than a conqueror as you rest in the presence of the Lord. In His presence is where your will receive heavenly wisdom to build His Kingdom and the revelation of who He is for your situation which will defeat your enemy.
As we “Behold Him” by keeping ourselves in the mirror of His word and communing intimately with Him, He will transform us from faith to more faith, and glory to more glory. God will cause us to AWAKEN to His heart. He will give us the ARISE within, and He will cause us to SHINE. It is a season of a special visitation from the Lord. He is very near! Turn your eyes upon Jesus, and let the things of this world grow dim.
Our great God is in complete control of this world that He loves. His eye keeps watch over this nation and over His beloved.
His eyes are toward you and open to your cry (Ps 34:15).
He rules by His might forever; “His eyes keep watch” on the nations; Let not the rebellious exalt themselves. Selah. (Psalms 66:7)
