A Month to Arise & Shine

Friend, praise the Name of The Lord Jesus Christ. I know it is well with you and even that which seems not to be in alignment, God will do it for you in Jesus Mighty name, Amen. My wife and I are doing well and are thankful to the Lord for His continued faithfulness towards us.
This month, is “A Month to Arise and Shine”
The Bible says in Isaiah 60:1-2 “Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.....
Friend, the word ARISE means “to get up or to stand up as from a lying or sitting position”, “to come into notice”,“to be recognized”, “to ascend”. What this means is that you should expect to get up, stand up, ascend and come into notice (be recognized) during this month. To "Arise" also means to move on to the next level, a higher level. You do not arise downward, you arise upward. Many issues may have tied you down, many burdens and yokes may be pulling you down, perhaps its debt or sickness, friend, expect to get up. The God of the Breakthrough, the Creator of the Universe, The One who holds the whole world in His hands says “ARISE”, stand up. Friend, expect to ascend to greater heights because the LORD, the Burden Remover, will destroy every yoke that is holding you down in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
You are arising for various reasons:-
Arising for Possession
In Genesis 13:17 we see God speaking to Abram “Arise, walk through the land in the length of it and in the breadth of it; for I will give it unto thee.” In Joshua 8:1 we read God’s command to Joshua “…..arise, go up to Ai: see, I have given into thy hand the king of Ai, and his people, and his city, and his land:” Friend, God is commanding you to arise for there is much possession that He wants you to have in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen. Friend, I decree you will arise to possess all that God has ordained for you in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen. Arise & Possess!
Arising to worship
In Genesis 35:3 we read about Jacob and he says to his family “…let us arise, and go up to Bethel; and I will make there an altar unto God, who answered me in the day of my distress, and was with me in the way which I went.” I see you arising to worship. I see God filling your mouth with songs of worship. I see you offering unto God sweet sacrifices. I see your praise life changing. I see you arising to set up family alters that glorify God. I see you receiving a spirit of gratitude, a thankful spirit that will cause you to glorify God in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen. Arise to worship in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
Arising for much more…
Friend, you are arising for much more. We could write but never exhaust what God desires for you. Take time and meditate on this. I see you arising to Leadership (Joshua 1:2), arising to build (Nehemiah 2:17-20), arising for Intercession (Isaiah 21:5-6), arising to rescue (Deuteronomy 9:12) and also you are arising for restoration (Genesis 31:13, Luke 15:18). Friend, your enemies may have laughed at you but in Micah 7:8 the Bible says “Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me.
Arising to Shine
You are arising to shine. To “shine” means to be visible, to bloom. It means to come out of darkness, out of hiding and to be seen. Friend, I see you shinning in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen. Where many had left you, ignored you, overlooked you; trampled on you, all that is changing because He who makes people shine says “Arise, Shine”. In Matthew 5:14-16 we read, “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” It is your turn, Arise & Shine in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
No More Hiding
Friend, your time of being hidden is over. You have been in the closet too long, God is going to push you to a hill that your light may shine to many. Fear is being destroyed. No longer will God let you be left hidden. Your ministry is going to bloom; on your job you are going to be pushed to positions where you will have to be listened to. It does not matter where you have been or where you are, Joseph was in a jail but when the time to arise and shine came, he was catapulted to the palace. You may be an orphan like Esther, or a shepherd boy like David but when God decides that it is time to come into the palace, nothing can stop it.
Shinning to Influence
Friend, get ready for your words of wisdom will be cherished. God will fill your mouth with wisdom. In fact in Ecclesiastes 8:1 the Bible says “… A man's wisdom maketh his face to shine,...” Friend, I see God filling you with uncommon wisdom that will make you shine. As you arise, expect wisdom in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen. The Bible also says in Daniel 12:3 “And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.” Your shinning will cause you to be influential. You will affect lives. You will lead many to the true light as you shine. As you “shine”, darkness will be scattered and rendered ineffective. In John 1:5 we read “And the light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.” Friend, you will not be stopped by any darkness as you step into your season of arising and shinning. The witches and the sorcerers and all forms of darkness will not prevail over that which God has destined for you in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen.
A time for everything, A time to Arise and Shine
Finally friend, as we arise and shine, we will see the glory of the Lord. The Bible says in Isaiah 60:1 “….and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee.....” Get ready for the glory of God. In Ecclesiastes 3:1,4, the Bible says, “To everything there is a season, A time for every purpose under heaven….A time to weep, and a time to laugh; A time to mourn, and A time to dance”. This is your time to Arise and Shine in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen. May laughter and dancing fill your courts, may your chains be destroyed, and may every scheme of darkness planned by the enemy against you be destroyed in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen
Friend, “Arise, shine for light has come and the glory of the Lord is risen upon thee…”
Have a blessed month,
Bro Chester
