“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.”
Life can often feel so chaotic. Juggling a stressful job, a number of relationships, financial woes, and a host of other demands can sometimes be just too much. It’s no surprise that we find ourselves internally screaming and begging for a moment of peace.
The message of this Bible verse is pretty simple: slow down, take a deep breath, open yourself to the presence of God, and He will reward you with the peace you seek. Go further, and strive for peace in all your interactions with the world, and your peace will be multiplied, even as you’re fulfilling the wishes of Jesus, who declared, “Blessed are the peacemakers.”
Even in the dark times, even when death draws near, the mercy of God is always available to comfort us and grant us peace.
God Bless You
