Sure to shine

Dear friend, the promise for today is from Isaiah 60:1, “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you.” When the Lord comes into each and every one of our lives we are sure to shine bright. When the Holy Spirit comes into our lives, when we accept the Lord Jesus as our Saviour the Lord will make us shine for Him. But the main thing in this verse is about how we should arise and shine. Always remember that we have to do our part, only then God will do His part. When we work hard and give our full effort, as something that we are doing for the Lord, the Lord will do His part and cause you to shine bright.

I have read a phrase which says, ‘Your talent is God’s gift to you and what you do with your talent is your gift back to God.’ So always use your talents for God. Do your best for God. Jesus says in Matthew 5:16, “In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” When we do good works and people recognize it we bring glory to God’s name. People from around the world will say, “Yes, this person is different because he/she belongs to the Most High God and they will glorify the Father in Heaven.” So always remember the Lord in whatever you do and do your best for the Lord.
Even in the Bible we see the life of Daniel. He was a young man taken as a captive to Babylon. He had to face temptations of eating royal food. Yet he chose to follow God’s laws. He also prayed to God three times a day. Though he had to face the jealousy of people in everything God made him stand out and be distinguished as the man of God. His good works brought praise to the Living God in a land where people did not know the Lord. That is how God wants us to shine and make a difference in everything we do. People who see us will surely see God in us when we do good deeds. From today, make it a point to pause and consider if what you do will glorify God and then do it. Let God’s name be lifted high through you.
Lord Jesus,

Make me shine for You. Help me to use my talents for Your glory. Let me shine in each field I set my foot. Let all my efforts be blessed. Make me work hard for You. Give me grace to give my best for You. Let my good works bring You praise.

In Your precious name, I pray. Amen.
