The tender mercy of our God; whereby the Dayspring from on high hath visited us…Luke 1:78(KJV)
I was searching for Words of enCOURAGEment. I was directed to Luke. I was instructed to read and that I would know when I found what I was looking for.
It is no wonder we love the sunrise so much. Jesus is our sunrise. He is our Dayspring! Dayspring or anatolēin Greek, means rising light or dawn.
The Dayspring has visited us!
The word visited (episkeptomai) means to look upon or examine with the eyes in order to see how one is doing, in order to help.
Loosely translated the first part of this verse says to me:
Through the tender, kindness of God, from the bottom of his heart, He sent us the Sonrise, Jesus, just to put an eye on us and to see how we are doing!
I enCOURAGE you to bask in the glory of our Dayspring, our Sonrise, every morning when you see the sunrise. Even if you don’t get to see it, (like me today) it is still faithful to rise and greet us, just like him. However, He is all the more faithful, our Dayspring.
