A New Day is Dawning

What does the dawn of the New Day mean in the Bible?

John 3:19 says, “But the dawning of the new day in Jesus means that ‘light has come into the world.’” God’s written word, the Bible, points to Him; you and I must trust our lives to Him. And when we shall discover some of the other characteristics of the new day which Isaiah points out:

“Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever more.” (Isaiah 9:7)

“Therefore, we do not lose heart, even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.” (2 Corinthians 4:16-18)

Through the LORD’s mercies we are not consumed, because His compassions fail not, they are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. The LORD is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul who seeks Him.” (Lamentations 3:22-23, 25)

“But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To Him be the glory both now and forever. Amen.” (2 Peter 3:18)

“For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the LORD, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.” (Jeremiah 29:11-13)

“Through the tender mercy of our God, with which the Day spring from on high has visited us; to give light to those who sit in darkness and the shadow of death, to guide out feet into the way of peace. So, the child grew and became strong in spirit, and was in the deserts tell the day of his manifestation to Israel.” (Luke 1:78-80)
