Arise and shine brightly today, child of the living God! Just as the stars in the heavens above were created to shine and declare the glory of God, so you also were created to shine and be a declaration of God’s glory. Do not let the clouds of circumstance dictate your internal ‘weather patterns’ today – it’s not a day for black moods or damp thinking. Instead allow the Holy Spirit within you to explode like a glorious sun, rising in the midst of you. Let Him shine His rays through you and through what you think, do and say.
The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. Day after day they pour forth speech; night after night they reveal knowledge. They have no speech, they use no words; no sound is heard from them. Yet their voice goes out into all the earth, their words to the ends of the world. In the heavens God has pitched a tent for the sun. It is like a bridegroom coming out of his chamber, like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
