Verse of the Day: October 26th — Isaiah 60:1
“Arise! Shine, for your light has come,
the glory of the Lord has dawned upon you.”
Jesus told you that He is the Light in the world; whoever follows Him (and not the ways of the worldly) will not walk in darkness … but in divine light that expels all shadows of wickedness (Jn 8:12). Today He is reminding you to Arise! Stand proud and firmly planted! Shoulders back; chin up; shine your light — because the light of the Lord is with you; the glory of God dawns upon you. No matter what comes against you, persevere steadfastly in faith and hope. You have all you need for today because your power and light is not from this world but from above.
“Lord Jesus, thank You for Your providence today; for casting Your heavenly light in the darkest of places. From seeds of dishonesty and depravity, You sow truth and righteousness; from corruption and decay a harvest of new life and morality. We know that all things work for good for those who love You, Lord; and therefore, we pray for the conversion of the most bitter and hardened of hearts. Help even the most faithful among us to stand courageously and unwaveringly in Your Light of all truth. It is only in Your good and Holy Name we pray, Amen.”
