Spiritual Lesson #1,082

God’s new day always begins at night.

God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. So the evening and the morning were the first day.

And God called the firmament Heaven. So the evening and the morning were the second day.

So the evening and the morning were the third day.

So the evening and the morning were the fourth day.

So the evening and the morning were the fifth day.

Then God saw everything that He had made, and indeed it was very good. So the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Genesis 1.5, 8, 13, 19, 23, 31

{How do you know a new day is beginning?  It’s nighttime.  Spiritually, emotionally – dark.}

The silver sliver of moon shines brightly  against the final vestiges of night, the forerunning call of what is imminent, as it loses its dark stronghold to impending breakthrough: dawn!

The old dog’s ears perk at the first bird-chirp announcement and she stretches lazily across the cool patio concrete, I knew this night would not last forever.

Isaiah 60

“Arise, shine;

For your light has come!

And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.

For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth,

And deep darkness the people;

But the Lord will arise over you,

And His glory will be seen upon you…

“The sun shall no longer be your light by day,

Nor for brightness shall the moon give light to you;

But the Lord will be to you an everlasting light,

And your God your glory.

Your sun shall no longer go down,

Nor shall your moon withdraw itself;

For the Lord will be your everlasting light,

And the days of your mourning shall be ended.

Also your people shall all be righteous;

They shall inherit the land forever,

The branch of My planting,

The work of My hands,

That I may be glorified.”
