Beloved, the Father of Lights (James 1:17) created you to live in light. Most likely, you have endured; or may be currently enduring a season of darkness; or be in the shadow of death. However, you are not meant to dwell in darkness. Your Heavenly Father is your light when you live in seasons of darkness.
Beloved, hear the Word of the Lord for you.
“Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord,
And whose hope is the Lord.”
Jeremiah 17:7 (NKJV)
“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)
Beloved, this passage in Luke is Zechariah’s prophecy concerning Jesus. Through the mercy of God, He sent Jesus, the Dayspring, to visit earth to be light for those who sit in darkness or the shadow of death.
Beloved, you can hope in the Lord as your Dayspring to light the darkness and the shadow of death. Darkness may be a season of depression, grief or other hardships and trials. The darkness could be a time that there seem to be no answers to your problems or your prayers. This may be a time where the shadow of death is a prominent reality for you, whether it is your life that is in the shadow of death or the life of a loved one. Even in times of darkness, your hope is the Lord your Dayspring. The darkness is as light to the Lord (Psalm 139:12). It may be a fact that you are in darkness and/or the shadow of death; however, the truth remains that the Dayspring is come as your light in darkness. He guides you to the way of peace. This Hebrew word for peace is shalom, which contains the meanings, “health, wellbeing, prosperity, tranquility and covenant of peace with God.” Shalom comes from a root word that means, “covenant of peace.” Your Heavenly Father guides you to the way to live from the covenant of peace He has with you through your relationship with Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior.
Beloved, please turn your face to the Father and ask Him to show you how to live in the hope of Him as your Dayspring. Please ask Him to show you His morning light in the midst of darkness and/or the shadow of death.
Beloved, I bless you to grow in your hope in the Lord as your Dayspring. I bless you to hope in the light of the Dayspring for your seasons of darkness and times you may be in the shadow of death. I bless you with the light of the Lord your Dayspring to guide your feet into the way of peace. I bless you to live from the Dayspring lighting your path so you can live from the covenant of peace in the darkness and the shadow of death. I bless you to live in the abundance of the provisions of the covenant of peace, which include health, wellbeing, prosperity and tranquility. Blessed are you who trust in the Lord and whose hope is the Lord your Dayspring. I bless you in the name of Yeshua, in the name of Jesus.
