God Shines Over You
Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD shines over you. For look, darkness covers the earth, and total darkness the peoples, but the LORD will shine over you, and His glory will appear over you.
Then the LORD will appear over them, and His arrow will fly like lightning. The Lord GOD will sound the trumpet and advance with the southern storms.
If you feel as if you are in the midst of total darkness today, take heart. Indeed, when I watch the news, I can see just how dark this world has become, and it seems to be growing darker. What we must remember in these times is that when the evil rises, God’s glory also rises. God, shines over His people because He is at work in us. In the midst of darkness, look to see where God’s light is shining. A city on a hill cannot be hidden, and God makes Himself clearly seen in the midst of darkness to the discerning eye.
God still works in the lives of His people, and He is still at work in our country. Don’t believe for one moment the lie the enemy has stirred within our culture that God has abandoned this country or is punishing us. God’s purpose is always to grow us in our faith and never to destroy us. The devil’s plan is to destroy this country and God’s people with it. God is our light, and He still shines over His people to make us victorious. What we need individually and as a country is to see God’s glory revealed in the midst of our pain and struggles. As Zechariah illustrates in the verse above, we should expect God to counter the enemy’s attacks.
Yes, God still answers prayer. Yes, God still works wonders and performs miracles. Yes, God still advances His kingdom through mere men – and women. Ask Him for a revelation of His glory today. Expect some southern storms to emerge and wreak havoc on the enemy’s schemes. God is with you, and His light shines over you. You are destined for victory!
Have a blessed day!
