Isaiah 40:31  says: “But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint”.

Now when you look at the second part of the scripture above, it sounds like a contradiction. When you RUN, you dissipate energy, you use up your strength and the tendency is that one is weakened or weary. When one walks also the human body may get tired or faint. But there is something about the Spirit of God in the life of a man which makes one defy common logic or common sense.


Job 14: 7-9 says “For there is hope of a tree, if it be cut down, that it will sprout again, and that the tender branch thereof will not cease. Though the root thereof wax old in the earth, and the stock thereof die in the ground; Yet through the scent of water it will bud, and bring forth boughs like a plant”.

It does not matter if you think your root is waxing old in the earth: Behold the scent of the waters is upon you. You  will spring forth in Jesus name.

FLOURISH means to prosper, thrive in growth, to  produce and develop.

When circumstances look bleak in the physical, you have to see beyond the dark clouds. You need to SEE and not just LOOK. God is about to do a new thing in your life. It is spring, it’s time to blossom, it’s time to flourish.

‘It’s not by power, it’s not by might, but by My Spirit’, says the Lord. Tap into the outpouring of God’s Spirit and you will see your life, vision, calling, family flourish.

For you to flourish, you need to arise, so you can shine. Arise out of rejection, failure, depression, pain and regrets. Step forward into the limelight of God’s Spirit and begin to shine unto favour, unto progress, and unto advancement. FLOURISH.
