This morning in church, I notice the verb God uses when he speaks to reluctant prophets. He says: arise.
I can’t stop thinking about this verb. Arise! Arise and go!
It’s such an interesting command. I learn that arise literally means to come into being, to emerge, to move upward.
Arise! Come into the calling I have for you! Emerge out of whatever darkness you’re in!
He takes us by the hand and invites us to arise and go.
