-Roy Lessin, Jesus Name Above All Names
Through the tender mercy of our God,
With which the Dayspring from on high has visited us;
To give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death,
To guide our feet into the way of peace.
- Luke 1:78-79 NKJV
When we want to watch the setting sun, we look to the west. The setting sun reminds us that the day is over and the night has come. When we want to see the sunlight of a new day, we look to the east. The eastern sky reminds us that God is going to do a new thing. When the night sky is the darkest and the temperature is the coldest, that is when your hope can begin to soar. It is at that moment that the first light of a new day will appear before your eyes.
Are you going through a dark battle? Does it seem there is no hope in sight? Does it seem as through the dawning of victory's light will never come? Stand fast. Stand firm. Stand confident and full of hope. Keep your eyes on the Lord, and wait patiently for Him.
The Dayspring from on high will shine His glorious light over your situation. His light will not grow dim or turn away from you. His light will show you the next step to take. The way will become clear and the way of peace will open up before you.
