“Because of God’s tender mercy, the morning light from heaven is about to break upon us.” (Luke 1: 78, New Living Translation)
Heaven’s light is on its way. God’s tender mercy towards us promises enlightenment, peace, comfort, joy.
We are not destined to live in the dark, to feel anguished, hurt, uncomfortable, or unworthy. We don’t need to continue to hold to resentments or to feel guilt over past mistakes. This is a new day. God’s tender mercy is here and ready to lead us forward, out of fear and gloom and into Life—the heaven of release to God.
It doesn’t matter how far gone we may believe we are. It doesn’t matter if mortal life has thrown us some curve balls or if we’ve failed to be as good and as faithful as we might have been. Today, we can turn to God and let Him renew us—love away our tears and show us how to forgive, to be merciful to ourselves and so, also, to others.
This morning light is new light. We don’t need to rely on yesterday’s understanding, methods, or memories. We can gratefully receive God’s mercy—His tender mercy—like a new sunrise shining on our humble faces, ready to start a new and lovely day.
