“Because of God’s tender mercy, the morning light from heaven is about to break upon us, to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, and to guide us to the path of peace.” Luke 1:78-79 (NLT)
This is part of Zacharias’s prophecy after the birth of John the Baptist. Such beautiful words! The “morning light from heaven”, Jesus came like the sun rising in the morning. We were in darkness, under the shadow of death and the light came to shine on all those in darkness and to show us the way to peace. Because of God’s tender mercy, he rescued us. I was under that curse. I was in darkness. Jesus came into my life and filled me with His light. He is my light and my peace.
Thank you Heavenly Father for your tender mercy that allowed the light of Jesus to shine on us. Thank you for making peace possible for us through Jesus. Thank you Jesus for being the Morning Light that shines on us and shows us the way to life. Thank you for leading me from the shadow of death into the light of life.
