We are serving a great God that creates an opportunity for those who serve Him with the heart. One thing about God is that He´s a reward.
Isaiah 52:1-2 ¨Awake, awake,Zion, clothe yourself with strength! Put on your garments of splendor, Jerusalem, the holy city. The uncircumcisedand defiled will not enter you again. Shake off your dust; rise up,sit enthroned, Jerusalem. Free yourself from the chains on your neck, Daughter Zion,now a captive.¨
Isaiah 60:1-7 ¨Arise,shine, for your lighthas come, and the gloryof theLordrises upon you. 2 See, darknesscovers the earth and thick darknessis over the peoples, but theLordrises upon youand his glory appears over you. 3 Nationswill come to your light, and kingsto the brightness of your dawn. 4 “Lift up your eyes and look about you: All assembleand come to you; your sons come from afar, and your daughtersare carried on the hip. 5 Then you will look and be radiant, your heart will throb and swell with joy; the wealthon the seas will be brought to you, to you the riches of the nations will come. 6 Herds of camelswill cover your land, young camels of Midianand Ephah. And all from Shebawill come, bearing gold and incense and proclaiming the praiseof theLord. 7 All Kedar’sflocks will be gathered to you, the rams of Nebaioth will serve you; they will be accepted as offeringson my altar, and I will adorn my glorious temple.
These two scriptures show the covenant of God for us and the position we ought to be in life. Many are still not to the standard of Heaven. The positions of Christian on earth are still been occupied by the unbeliever: this is why they still mocked our God. Beloved, it´s high time for you and l to arise and shine wherever go.
When the Bible says Arise and shine it means
1.You are sitting down at satanic bus stop.
2.You are Stagnant instead of flourishing.
3.You are operating unprofitable business while the unbelievers are earning the gains.
4. Christian are sleeping and wasting away while the opportunities before them are getting away.
5.Some are crying rather than laughing.
6.Something that supposes to be a light is becoming dark.
7.Stars that are not shinning.
8.Givers turning to beggars
9.Light that has been quenched.
Unfortunately, only few know the ability of their God. The same God that wrath signs and wonders in the Old Testament is still alive; He promised that greater miracle we shall experience in our time.
The heart of God cannot be compare to human´s heart; that is why when God says Shine it means various things,
1.Refused to be demoted.
2.To breakthrough from darkness to light.
3.Be a man or woman of distinction to your generation.
4.To be a royal model or an example to other.
5.To reject to accept poverty.
6.To break the agenda of limitation.
7.To be lifted up above the unbelievers around you.
8.That God divine goal inside you must not die.
9.To deliver your star from the hands of destiny hijackers.
10.Create a channel or a pattern of blessings for yourself.
11.To be a light to those living in the darkness.
12.Many are compromising their faith because of invaluable things.
13.Many are cooperating with their enemy to destroy their destiny, marriage, business etc.
14.Glorious destiny is diverted from achieving his original goals.
15.Stand out to take responsibility.
16.Be the one that will testify to the goodness of God each day of your life.

Job 22:28¨What you decide on will be done,and lightwill shine on your ways.¨ Isaiah 40:29-31 He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless. Even youths will become weak and tired, and young men will fall in exhaustion. But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles.
