The Lord’s Light Dawns for the Upright – Psalm 112:4
Even in darkness [the] Light dawns for the upright,
for those who are gracious and compassionate and righteous.
Have you ever lied awake at night feeling restless? The early morning hours can be an anxious time to be awake, bringing with it irrational fears of the future, disturbing thoughts or a disquieted spirit. In contrast, the first rays of light in the morning bring with it peace, hope and joy.
The reality is, life will not always feel peaceful or full of joy or hope — especially when we are traveling through a difficult and uncertain season of life. But God’s truth is that even in our darkest moments, His Light illuminates our lives like the dawn. During the day or in the still of the night, the Lord’s light covers the upright in spirit. His grace, compassion, and righteousness are promised to those who allow Him to shine His virtues into theirs. So today, invite Him in. Grab hold of His hand, walk in His ways and bask in the glory of His impenetrable Light.
Jesus, help us to overcome our own darkness. Shine a light into our heart and into our lives and allow us to experience the hope and joy that accompanies Your dawn. We know that with You all things are possible, so today we place our worried and anxious thoughts aside and replace them with full trust in You. Amen.
