For Christians, the beginning of the day should not be burdened and haunted by the various kinds of concerns they face during the working day. The Lord stands above the new day, for God has made it. All the darkness and confusion of the night with its dreams gives way to the clear light of Jesus Christ and his awakening Word.
All restlessness, all impurity, all worry and anxiety flee before him. Therefore, in the early morning hours of the day may our many thoughts and our many idle words be silent, and may the first thought and first word belong to whom our whole life belongs. ‘Sleeper, awake! Rise from the dead and Christ will shine on you.’ (Ephesians 5:14)
-Dietrich Bonhoeffer, Life Together
The dawn of each new day is a blessing from God. It is a fresh opportunity, to start the day new, to remember that you who were dead, live now through Christ.
Each morning reminds us that God’s mercies are new every morning. Every morning reminds us that one day a new dawn will rise, where we will live and reign with Christ. Every new day is a gift from God.
Enjoy it with Him.
