With which the Sunrise from on high will visit us,
To shine upon those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death,
To guide our feet into the way of peace.” Luke 1:78-79 (NASB ©)
This was a prophecy spoken by Zacharias, the father of John the Baptist a few months before the birth of Jesus. Of course Jesus was the Sunrise who came from on high. He has shined in our hearts where there was darkness before. I trust that He is shining in your heart today. Without the light of Jesus we would remain in darkness. Part of that darkness would be an uncertainty and a fear of death. Death would cause a shadow ahead of us but now we can look ahead to eternity in God’s presence. Instead of fear we have peace and walk in the way of peace.
