Arise! For your Light has come!

Lift up the feeble hands and strengthen the weak knees!  No matter what your circumstances today you have a purpose and hope if you are a true believer and follower of Jesus Christ.  
This is not the time to quit.  This is the day to overcome.  

sa 60:1  Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.
(this is saying our light, Jesus Christ has come and will be our truth. His Glory, His Light His truth is for you and on you!)

Isa 60:2  For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee.
(The darkness is the deceit and lies this world proclaims as a false truth. It covers the whole earth and is deep but GOD has arisen and His light is so bright you , called out ones, will be reflecting that light in your actions, thoughts, and speach.

Like a light house we are not the light, but are to reflect the light of God. A light reveals truth. It shows what is hidden in the dark.  You can walk in the light, but without light you stumble and fall.  Darkness conceals, light reveals!
God is speaking to us . Every day in every situation. Listen to hear what He is saying... ©salzano

I heard a question recently and wanted to add my thoughts on it. That one cannot grow in spiritual character growth unless they attend regularly to church.  
Since church is not a building but a group of people I disagree.  What about people in places where no "church" is.  Where the mention of God is condemned and you may be killed?  What about the person who cannot get out because of illness, or the wife of someone who does not allow them to go to church? Are they doomed to not grow in the grace and knowledge of our Savior Jesus Christ?  NO!  
God knows your situation, He knows where you are and in certain situations God will be your only teacher.  There are too many stories that show this is true.  Besides just knowing God as I do I know that if He wanted to make prophets rise from the stones He would.
God has many gardens where His called out ones are growing.  Do not judge where they are.  Do you think God can not handle the teaching of His children no matter where they are?  

If they currently do not fit in a standard down the street church who are we to judge them?  If they study the word of God and put into practice the things Jesus Christ taught are they not His children?  Will God not answer their daily fervent prayers to grow spiritually?  God is capable to do that and more!!

That said, many people need to be going to a church.  Most people most likely.  But in the days ahead church may not be as it is now.  Things are coming that will disrupt all things.  Beware of putting God in a box.  He is not thinking like a man and man does not understand God fully.  He is always going to do what is best for each of his children no matter where they are.   

Almighty God,
I pray for you to anoint your called out ones today.
Bless them with discernment, Godly boundaries, wisdom of the Spirit.
Give them the strength they need for this day.
Forgive them as they weep and cry out to you for help to overcome.

Correct in compassion the ones who need to understand better who they are in Christ.
finish what You have begun in us.
Protect our minds from lies, deceit from satan and evil

Let us go forth in Your Name
on the highways, in the work places in our homes.
For you see and know every thought.

In Jesus Name
