Reading: Isaiah 60
God’s word is alive! This is an exciting chapter to write about because I also believe it is a prophetic word for us in this season. I believe God showed me at the end of last year that we are entering into a time of harvest.
‘Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.’Did you know the moon doesn’t shine? It actually reflects the light of the sun. God is positioning us to reflect His glory and people are drawn to Him as He works in us and through us. We are His light in the darkness (Matt 14:16).
‘Lift up your eyes and look about you.’ We are called to watch and pray and develop spiritual sensitivity to what is happening. As Mary sat at the feet of Jesus, we, too, need to make that time and listen to what He is telling us. Listening to the Holy Spirit is a 24/7 activity and it takes practice and intentionality.
The last verse also stood out to me. ‘The least of you will become a thousand, the smallest of you a mighty nation. I am the LORD. In its time I will do this swiftly.’ You may have heard the saying ‘A journey of a thousand miles starts with one step’. God always meets us where we are at: we don’t have to reach a level of spirituality for Him to use us. Be expectant. Be watchful. Be thankful. Be believing.
• Thank God for where He is at work in your life
• Ask Him to open your eyes to what is happening in the spiritual realm and give you an understanding of where you have influence and authority
• Ask God to put someone on your heart and pray for them, even if it is just one minute and most of it is praying in tongues!
Spending time intentionally, daily, will increase your ability to hear from God. This is vital to our success ‘in the race’.
