“Arise [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you – rise to a new life]! Shine (be radiant with the Glory of the Lord), for your light has come, and the Glory of the Lord has risen upon you”! Isaiah 60:1
Let’s not sugar coat it – life does get tough. Sometimes tougher than we expect. Sometimes (I mean most times), our breakthroughs don’t happen on our timetable 😩. The result of that for most of us – despair, prostration and hopelessness.
This is the period where we begin to wonder if we’re doing everything right, why does it have to be us every time sef .
And yes, when all these happen it becomes easier to back slide. Skip church, skip Bible study — because what is the use, really? We wonder .
If you’re at this point today, I’d encourage you to take heart. I’d also like to remind you that God is aware of your situation and He’s got good plans for you, but first, He’s asking you to “Arise [from the depression and prostration in which circumstances have kept you – rise to a new life]”. You should bookmark this page as “good news” because “…your light has come, and the Glory of the Lord has risen upon you”! Isaiah 60:1
P.S: that verse deserves more than one-time reading so much so that if it were ever listed on the stock exchange, I’d put my money on it. For real . That verse is life-changing, depression-crushing and — there’s definitely more to it than meet the eye. I recommend we all ask God to open the eyes of our understanding to the truth in it .
