“Lift up your eyes and look about you: All assemble and come to you; your sons come from afar, and your daughters are carried on the hip.” Isaiah 60:4 NIV
This scripture promises us that in our rising and shining we will see those we love gather around what we love and what God is building.
All assemble is like a congregating and a momentum building atmosphere around those who have felt afar. This could be loved ones who have misunderstood what is dear to you. Ones that have felt you move forward and left them behind.
The promise also shows the image of the Father of the Prodigal Son who watches constantly for his son to come HOME. So even when he was returning from far off he ran after him and covered his shame and guilt. This is the perfect image of what the Church can be.
You have sons and daughters returning home. This is for someone today in Jesus Name. You have the generations in the House. May this picture an image of the local church for our cities, provinces and nations.
