Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you. Isaiah 60:1 The pronouncement of God is to arise above the circumstances and above all that was previously seen.

When we participate with Him in His work, we discover that His yoke is easy and His burdens are light.
