Even in darkness light dawns for
the upright, for the gracious and
compassionate and righteous man.

~ Psalm 112:4

What a powerful promise!
Just as night passes into dawn, for
the gracious and compassionate and
righteous, dawn comes even in the worst
nights of deep spiritual darkness.
The Holy Spirit is reminding us that
even in those worst times of cultural
decay and decadence, Satan's darkness
will not rule forever.

His darkness cannot stay where
Jesus' disciples reflect the character
of the Light of the world.

Holy and loving God, help me to shine
your light of holiness and Jesus' light
of hope to those trapped in darkness.
O God, please forgive my sinful failures.
Please cleanse me and create a pure heart
in me. I don't want to dim or to diminish
your light as it shines through me.
Help me so that I can more perfectly
shine your light to those around me.
In Jesus' name I pray.
