On the eve of dawn.
Dawn, by its definition, is something like the first impression of light in heaven before sunrise. We all know that the greatest darkness is on the verge of dawn.
I prevented the dawning of the morning, and cried: I hoped in thy word. (Psalm 119:147, KJV)
There were times in my life when I thought it couldn’t be worse. Those were almost hopeless periods. So many things were wrong that I thought couldn’t go on. It seemed to me that everything was strangling me, that I cannot breathe. I didn’t know if I could go on. When I look back on those periods, I see that they were fights for me. God fought for me. I discovered that God is there even when I don’t see Him. He is forever involved in our lives. He always has a plan for us. Perfect plan. We trust Him and stay faithful.
In those almost hopeless times, the devil was reminding me of people I’ve hurt and mistakes I did. I know that I have hurt a lot of people during my life, intentionally and unintentionally. Guilt and anger grew in me, even self-contempt, and all those feeling that didn’t come from God.
But, there was something else. God knows me just the way I am. He created me, gave me this mindset and a mouth to speak. God loves me and will never stop loving me. Every day is a chance for a new start with God. Each day is a new chance to atone all our sins.
I have one message for you to hold in your hearts today: No matter for dark is a situation you are into now, the new dawn is coming. With new dawn coming, there is time for offering. Give all of your battles to the Lord and take His peace!
Share this message, share the love of God!
