Arise & Shine – It’s Time!

Arise, shine, pray, speak and believe 

together with a spirit of boldness and 

humility.

It’s not for a show;

It’s for the One we know in intimacy.

Break off the fear of man

and step out in obedience to Me.

As you are led by My Spirit in full 

surrender, you will go forth in joy, peace 

and power for My honor, reverence, 

and glory.

Those who are led by My Spirit are those 

who are walking in step with Me.

Arise and shine my covenant sons and 

daughters. 

You were born for such a time 

as this

to shine My light for all to see.

“…so that no one can criticize you. Live clean, innocent lives as children of God, shining like bright lights in a world full of crooked and perverse people.” (Philippians 2:15)

 

“You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.” (Words of Jesus, Matthew 5:14-16)

 

“Obviously, I’m not trying to win the approval of people, but of God.  If pleasing people were my goal, I would not be Christ’s servant.  Galatians 1:10
