And I will give him the morning star. Revelation 2:28 (NKJV)
The morning star…I see it almost every morning over the barn behind our house. I curl up on the sofa by the window, sipping my Jesus tea and reading God’s Word. Glancing outside I smile at the sky, talking to the Lord. And there, above the barn, twinkling back at me, is the brightest morning star! Then, soon after, the sky lightens, the day dawns, and I view the mountains beyond Montana fields.
And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts. 2 Peter 1:19 (NKJV)
One morning in my usual quiet time spot, I was studying this verse from 2 Peter 1:19 about reading the Bible. Peter explains God’s Word is a light that shines in a dark place. How this world needs His light! We all must keep digging into His Word and shining His light to others. And someday, Jesus will come and we won’t need the lights in the sky anymore. For He will be our dawning light and His Morning Star will shine in our hearts. Though we celebrate now the advent before Christmas, we are always in the season of advent, preparing for Christ’s second coming.
Today’s TEA CUPP: Of all the presents that could come your way this Christmas, my prayer for you, My TEA CUPP friend, is the gift of His light in your heart. Sit by a window in the early morning hours, as you read your Bible, and invite Jesus to be the center of your advent season, your Christmas holiday, and your life.
“I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things in the churches. I am the Root and the Offspring of David, the Bright and Morning Star.” Revelation 22:16 (NKJV)
