“Because of God’s tender mercy, the morning light from heaven is about to break upon us, to give light to those who sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, and to guide us to the path of peace.” Luke‬ ‭1:78-79‬ ‭NLT‬‬

These are still the words of Zechariah, prophesying about the birth of Jesus. I love this description of how His presence brings light, and hope and direction, and peace. Like the sun rising, darkness has to flee! Lord thank You for both Your tenderness and Your power, Your mercy and Your love. I’m praying today for all those still sat in darkness, anyone I know who is experiencing the shadow of death. Lord, bring Your light to bear, expose what is hidden to bring real healing, and may they encounter You in such a way that leads them along that pathway to peace. Amen 🙌🏼❤️
