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.

Prayer:
• 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’.

The Danger of Spiritual Infancy (Hebrews 5:11 - 6:12)

Have you met people who refuse to grow up? There are some adults who prefer to remain as children because they do not want to take on adult responsibilities. Not only is immature behaviour unpleasant to observe or deal with, the consequences are often destructive. In Hebrews 5:11-14, the writer expresses his frustration that some members of the church were refusing to grow into spiritual maturity. They were no longer trying to understand God’s word (v 11). Instead of taking on the responsibility of teaching others as they themselves had been taught, they needed to be taught the basics all over again (v12). Therefore, they were unable to take on “solid food” which is for mature Christians, and they were not able to distinguish good from evil (v14) or to understand teaching about righteousness (v13). Spiritual maturity is a necessary part of our walk with God. Remaining as a spiritual infant means that you are not good at discerning right from wrong and you will have a hard time maintain

A prophet prophesies and the church fully obeys (Acts 11:27- 12:4)

During this time some prophets came down from Jerusalem to Antioch. 28 One of them, named Agabus, stood up and through the Spirit predicted that a severe famine would spread over the entire Roman world. (This happened during the reign of Claudius.) 29 The disciples, as each one was able, decided to provide help for the brothers and sisters living in Judea. 30 This they did, sending their gift to the elders by Barnabas and Saul. 12 It was about this time that King Herod arrested some who belonged to the church, intending to persecute them. 2 He had James, the brother of John, put to death with the sword. 3 When he saw that this met with approval among the Jews, he proceeded to seize Peter also. This happened during the Festival of Unleavened Bread. 4 After arresting him, he put him in prison, handing him over to be guarded by four squads of four soldiers each. Herod intended to bring him out for public trial after the Passover. When Jewish believers from Cyprus (Europe) and Cyrene (Liby

THE BLESSINGS OF HIS NAME (Numbers 6:22 - 27

I find this interesting because I remember listening to Pastor Betty’s message for 2021, and it was on the same Benediction Blessing verses. And today’s Scripture reading is exactly the same, and I am sure the Holy Spirit wants to remind us of “The Blessings of His Name” for 2022. Today, our mobile phones are loaded with New Year wishes, TV and radio personalities wish into microphones and cameras – we hear them from so many different sources. Carefully note what God tells us: “Tell Aaron and his sons, ‘This is how you are to bless the Israelites. Say to them, The LORD bless you and keep you; The LORD make His face shine upon you and be gracious unto you; The LORD turn His face toward you and give you peace.’ So, they will put My name on the Israelites, and I will bless them.” (Numbers 6:23-27) In this way, God places His all-important NAME on us, His people. A comparison would be that of signing on a cheque. An unsigned check is void and worthless until the owner ‘s “name” has been pl
