Th sun peeks over the horizon. The warm gaze is a welcomed relief to the world. It’s beams break the darkness. It’s glory silences the cold cry of night.
Morning. It’s the natural sign of Gods covenant to His creation. Several times both morning and His Hesed (The Hebrew Word for God’s faithful, steadfast love. His loyal love, that is founded upon His covenant to us.) Love is mentioned together (Ps 59:16, 90:14, 92:2,143:8,Lam 3:22-23) He understands our dusty minds, He knows we need a physical reminder of His steadfast love. So, every morning, without delay, the sun rises over the horizon. It’s a picture of God’s faithful love. With every peak it’s a guarantee of His promise.
He’s still here. He still cares. He still has a purpose for you.
The night can seem so long, like blackness is following our every move. It hangs as if to taunt us, trying to convince us the sun will never break its hold. It deceives is to believe that we are stuck in this oblivion with no way out. Our hearts burn. Our eyes strain to see the slightest trace of light. The night tarry’s, clinging to the clock, as our hope wains under the weight.
It’s in our darkest moments that we often forget the promise: night won’t last forever.
Every night sets the stage for the morning. Every trial and every heartache, is setting up the stage for God’s steadfast love to shine through, to conquer and redeem.
His love expands past the night, it goes beyond the horizon. Darkness cannot win because His Love promises a breakthrough. With each morning, the faithfulness of the sun, tells of the loyalty of God.
Know this: that breakthrough is not something we wish for, it’s something we are promised.
The method is not certain but the dawning is.
After all, breakthrough is what the gospel is all about. One man breaking through a dark tomb to the dawn of a new day. What seemed like the end was just the beginning.
He is the Resurrection and the Life.
The dark of night cannot compare with the glory of the morning. He comes into our darkest moments, when all hope is gone and says “Arise…”.
The night has no hold. It will not last forever, after it’s predetermined time is complete, it will bow to love. It will melt under the feet of the Son.
Don’t lose heart.
Morning is coming.
He is loyal.
“The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases, His mercies never end; they are new every morning; Great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23
