God Shines on You

All nations will come to your light; mighty kings will come to see your radiance.

Isaiah 60:3 NLT

https://bible.com/bible/116/isa.60.3.NLT

 Do you wait with a sense of longing for God to restore and make things right? Do you long for others to show appreciation and value to you and yours? Do you desire God’s abundant presence and blessing in your life?

At face value, this verse of scripture seems to be written about God and His radiance. The truth is, this verse is written about the light and radiance of the people of Israel. The days of oppression are over. God has come to restore and renew. People are gathering from all over the world.

God says powerful things through Isaiah: “Your bronze will be exchanged for gold. Your sons and daughters will return home. Leaders from all around the world will bring you abundance.” God says He will be the everlasting light. The sun and moon will no longer need to set or rise.

God’s abundance is on display. He draws people and resources to accomplish what He wants done. God lifts us up out of oppression. He does make things right. There is a time where He will reveal understanding and appreciation to others of living faithfully for Him. His presence provides an abundance that is spiritual, physical and material.

Recently I was visiting with a young couple who have given this season of their life to the Lord in full time ministry. There isn’t much money in what they have chosen to do. Yet, God consistently provides for them in ways that surprise and bless them. His presence is evident in their lives. His abundance is shining upon them. He is lifting them up.

Encouragement: What God said to Israel through Isaiah holds true for us today. Keep following God. Watch for the abundance of His presence in your life with great expectation.

Prayer: Dear God, thank You for coming and lifting us up out of oppression. Thank You for shining Your presence on our lives. Thank You for not only restoring us, but also lavishing on us far beyond anything we deserve. May we embrace the shining of Your light through our lives in this world today because of You and your incredible generosity.

In Jesus name, Amen
