IT SHALL BE WELL VI
Scientists said that the moon does not have a light of its own; what is called moonlight is a reflection from the sun. The moon is properly positioned to reflect the light from the sun.
The Bible says that the moon has its own glory. I Corinthians 15:41. That means the glory of the moon is dependent on its alignment to the sun. If the moon (for whatever reason) loses its alignment to the sun; consequently, it loses its glory.
Jesus Christ is the Sun of righteousness. The Bible says:
“ For, behold, the day cometh, that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly, shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the LORD of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch. But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.” – Malachi 4:1-2
Every believer must constantly be in proper alignment with the Sun of righteousness to continue to reflect the ‘glory of righteousness’. What does this mean? The Sun of righteousness is also the Word of God. The Bible says:
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God…. And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” – John 1:1,14
Just like an airplane, the cardinal direction for a child of God is proper alignment with the Word of God at all times. Each time that there is a slight deviation the signal to reflect the glory of righteousness will be lost. Consequently the prophecy of “Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.” (Isaiah 3:10) may not work. We cannot deliberately go off course with the Word of God and expect the prophecy to work because our identity automatically changes when we lose our alignment with the Word of God. We must remember that the devil is the accuser of brethren. Revelation 12:10. We can always put him where he rightly belongs by staying on course with the Word of God because that is what underpins our righteousness. Consequently, we can declare that it shall be well with us.
If we look at our core text for this week “Say ye to the righteous, that it shall be well with him: for they shall eat the fruit of their doings.” (Isaiah 3:10). As long as the qualifications of righteousness have been met; an individual can “say” to him or herself “…it shall be well with me…” and God is under obligation to confirm the word. Therefore, you look at yourself in the mirror and declare to yourself that “it shall be well with me because I shall eat the fruit of my doings”.
If you are reading this and you are yet to accept Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior; don’t allow the devil to pitch you against God. Take a stand against the devil today and take a decision for God. Go to the salvation page on our website; pray the prayer there and be in church next Sunday to consolidate your decision. I can assure you that all shall be well with you.
Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, help me to walk in the light of Your Word at all times and in all areas of my life. Psalm 119:105
