Light arises in the darkness . . .

“Light dawns in the darkness for the upright; He is gracious, merciful, and righteous.” (Psalm 112:4)

“I am the light of the world. Whoever follows Me will not walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.” — Jesus Christ, in John 8:12

Just as the dawn brings the light of a new day (I must begin to welcome the dawn — by listening, watching, anticipating, meeting My Lord as the day breaks), so the light (Jesus said, “I am the light of the world.”) arises in my darkness.

Darkness is not permanent. The darkness of suffering, sorrow, sickness, sin is not forever. Christ’s light breaks through and shines on my darkness. This is true for every believer.

I must welcome the light of each new dawn, thus enabling myself to see Jesus’ light in my darkness.

Gracious Lord!

Merciful Father!

Upright God!

Shine Your light on the darkness of all Your children today.
