The sun shall be no more
your light by day,
nor for brightness shall the moon
give you light;
but the Lord will be your everlasting light,
and your God will be your glory.
Your sun shall no more go down,
nor your moon withdraw itself;
for the Lord will be your everlasting light,
and your days of mourning shall be ended.
(Isaiah 60:18, 20 ESV)
I often hear people say, “I’ll be happy when this is over.” Then the next thing happens. They are not happy yet.
Jesus is our light in the darkness now. Our everlasting life is not dependent on physical circumstances.
There is a hope that only the light of eternity can illuminate.
There is a joy in seeing the glory of the Lord even when the sun and moon withdraw.
