“Those who wait on the Lord, they shall inherit the earth.” (Psalm 27:9 NKJV)
“Those who trust in the Lord will possess the land.” (Psalm 27:9 NLT)
“Those who trust in the Lord will live safe and sound with blessings overflowing.” (Psalm TPT)
“Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the LORD will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you.” (Isaiah 60:1-2 NKJV)
The very reason why we can ARISE and SHINE is because HE IS RISEN!
“But if the Spirit of Him who raised Jesus from the dead dwells in you, He who raised Christ from the dead will also give life to your mortal bodies through His Spirit who dwells in you.” (Romans 8:11 NKJV)

The interview was like a game where Steven Furtick gave Bishop TD Jakes a song title from Hamilton The Musical. Without much time to think and ponder, he was asked to preach a one-minute sermon on that particular song title with a text. There were a few song titles that were mentioned along with the sermons, but this one caught my attention.
