When creating the world, God’s first order of business saw darkness turn to light. He said, “Let there be light.” And lickedy split, light emerges from dark. Light was the first thing He called good.
So this first act of creation replays every morning when darkness finds dawn’s early light breaking slowly, surely into blue sky. It’s not immediate, but it’s definite. It’s the first sign of a new day, and the first reminder of God’s good nature.
When darkness comes close, I remember how God’s chief desire is to bring light from it. I may see it immediately or gradually, but I’ll see it all right. God – the One in whom darkness is as light – can’t help but end all tunnels with light. He proves this through the face of Jesus, the Light of the world.
