Hello My name is Dayspring
Luke 1:78-79 "Through the tender mercy of our God; whereby the dayspring from on high hath visited us, To give light to them that sit in darkness and in the shadow of death, to guide our feet into the way of peace."
Dayspring? Kind of old englishy don't you think? But what does it even mean? The Bible is talking about our God, calling Him the dayspring from on high... so the word must be important. The word Dayspring according to webster means "The dawn of morning, day break. The first light of day."
God is comparable to the dawn of morning, or in other words, a brand new day. God wants to make a new day in us by making a new life for us. Once we have let Him into our lives, he makes us clean of our sins and new! Like a nice shiny sports car right off the lot!
Have you ever gone to bed anxious for tomorrow because you had the worst day ever? All you want is to wake up in the morning and have it be a new day. God is the ultimate new day! He gives us a new life! So next time you feel trapped in your old life, look to God. He is waiting with open arms to make all things new again. Your sunrise is waiting, but its a Godrise. Thats a new word I just made up because it fits with the lesson. Are you ready for your Godrise?
