Time to rise up . . .



Let the Abraham inside of you arise!

Grab hold of the heavenly vision and walk in it.  Do not look to the left or the right for confirmation.  Do not look back, look ahead, and dare not even a glance over your shoulder to see if it is coming forth. 


Let the Moses inside of you arise!

Stand up and resist.  Refuse to let the world enamor you through worldly accomplishments and recognition.  Refuse to be enslaved.  Rise up to lead in word and deed. 


Let the Daniel inside of you arise! 

Maintain your alien identity.  Cling to your allegiance to a King that is foreign to this land.  Refuse to bow a knee to this world’s idolatries, no matter how seemingly legitimate it dresses them. 


Let the Esther inside of you arise! 

Recognize that you are here for such a time as this.  Refuse to consider your own interests and comforts first.  Take hold of the authority given to you and exercise it against all that seeks to destroy His people.


Consider those who came before you.  Consider Abraham, Moses, Daniel, and Esther, the champions of the faith that paved the way for other champions and pioneers of the faith . . .


All these people were still living by faith when they died.  They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance, admitting that they were foreigners and strangers on earth.i


Seriously consider the words above.  The great men and women of faith saw the heavenly reality from afar.  Where is your vision? 

Heavenly vision has the power to take you through to the end.  It empowers.  It takes ordinary men and women and makes them fearlessly confident.

Don’t count yourself out.  You are the next generation of the Abrahams’, the Moses’, the Daniel’s, and the Esther’s. 

Your generation is counting on you!  You are the heroes of the faith for them!  Press on in faith trusting Him who is able to keep you from falling …


Let your heart resound with the call!  It does not matter where your state in life finds you.  The heart of God for you is what will empower you.

All that is required is that you persevere, refusing to quit.  Set your feet, determine your stand, and trust in the Lord.  He will bring you and all that will benefit from your perseverance, through to the end…  Victory!


Time to rise up!
