Have you been struggling in your life? Listen to today’s meditation verse. Psalm 112, verse 4. Light dawns in the darkness for the upright. He is gracious, merciful, and righteous.
As we meditate on this verse, let’s break it down. Light dawns in the darkness. So, metaphorically, in that dark time that you may be experiencing, or I may be experiencing, that’s when the light comes, always darkest before the dawn. Light dawns in the darkness, displacing the darkness, driving it away, for the upright.
Who are the upright? We are. We may not feel upright. But we are made upright by the sacrifice of Jesus.
And what are the aspects of that light dawning for us? Well, God is gracious. He gives us gifts and blessings that we haven’t earned. God is merciful, so that though we deserve punishment and exclusion from his presence, he draws us in. And he is righteous.
So he, our God, stands by his own justice. But let’s remember that that justice brings grace and mercy and light for us because he’s made us upright.
If you’re going through a dark time, I don’t know how long that might last, but take heart. Light dawns in the darkness, for the upright, and that’s you, and that’s me.
God please bless the people meditating on your Word along with me. Thank you for your grace and mercy and justice. You are so good, Amen.
