During this season of trials, both personal and global, when even our country seems to have slipped down into the confusing darkness, we have this promise:
Arise, shine, for YOUR light has come, and the glory of the Lord rises upon YOU. See, darkness covers the earth and thick darkness is over the peoples, but the Lord rises upon YOU and his glory appears over YOU. Nations will come to YOUR light, and kings to the brightness of YOUR dawn. Isaiah 60:1-3 NIV
Yes, for a season of despair you have laid upon your bed of languishing,
Cursing the darkness.
But God calls out:
Arise! Wake up o’ Sleeper!
His Glory rises like the dawn, rays reach out and unlock your slumbering heart.
Though choking darkness smothers the earth,
A spark ignites.
Holy breath fans the tinder of your parched heart into a flaming torch.
Yes, your own heart,
Illuminates the fearful blackness.
Awake o’ sleepers, arise from the the dead, and break your earthen jars.
Let your lights shine
And the signal fires blaze;
Drive darkness into despair.
And the people walking in darkness will see the great light
As the Light Bearers unite.
On the land of deep darkness dwellers
The light has dawned.
Interestingly, the day after I wrote this I read Lana Vawser’s prophecy, which you can read for yourself. http://www.elijahlist.com/words/html/textonly-032116-Vawser.html
