Isaiah 60:2 (KJV) For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
Many times Muna read the news, she was terrified by the proliferation of iniquity and the wantonness of the wicked. Everything seemed to be getting worse, not better.
She started to get really discouraged when the Lord comforted her by reminding her of today’s Bible verse. From that moment, she changed her view of life and determined that in spite of the fact that things were getting worse, she was getting better. From that time, she realized growth and increase in her life in every area. She also realized that the Lord promoted her and increased her level of influence when He got her to change her outlook on life. One of the disciplines the Lord taught her was to avoid complaining but learn to be thankful for her light in the midst of the darkness in this world.
As darkness covers the earth in these last days, God’s promise to His own is that His light will arise upon us and His glory will be seen in us. During these last days when there would be a great rebellion against God in the world(see 2 Thessalonians 2:3), there would be a great revival among God’s people. This revival would herald the preaching of the true gospel to the ends of the earth(Matthew 24:14). While gross darkness covers the people and they become more godless and wicked, God’s own people will become more godly and steadfast.
As you go into today, determine not to be fazed by the growing corruption and darkness in the world. Determine not to complain or allow the spirit of defeat in (that is the devil’s strategy to keep you down). Remember that in spite of the growing darkness in the world, God’s light shines brighter over and within you.
Confession: I arise and shine(Isaiah 60:1). I am God’s light in this world(Matthew 5:14). My life radiates the Lord’s glory and brings Him praise. In Jesus’ name.
