Raising a people of purpose


Psalm 68: 1
The Word: Psalm 68: 1 (KJV)

Let God arise, let his enemies be scattered: let them also that hate him flee before him.

Dig Deeper:
Psalm 7: 6  

Arise, O LORD, in Your anger; Lift up Yourself against the rage of my adversaries, And arouse Yourself for me; You have appointed judgment.

Think about it


To arise is to:
– Stand up, get to one’s feet, jump or leap up or become erect. 

When you are standing, there is likely to be more alertness and concentration than when you are sitting down. In a law court both when the Judge comes in to the court room and when he finishes to leave, the entire court arises as a show of respect. For the creator of the heavens and earth to arise is not a small thing. When he arises, it means he is giving undiluted attention to that case. When God arises, 4 things are automatic:

1 – The whole host of heaven arises with him. He can’t be on his feet while they are seated.
2 – He gives attention to that issue
3 – His enemies are scattered
4 – Then end of that case has come. Be it barrenness, cancer, sicknesses or problems, when God arises on a case, the end has come for that case……
