Often drawn are we in great times of distress, disturbance, or discouragement, towards the hope muralled inside our hearts, and clear across the horizon.

Ships have ventured east upon harsh and cautioned waters, against all odds of survival, with the hope that after toil through the night storms the dawn will prove faithful, yet again, to clear darkness from sight and bring the morning.

Battles have raged on through the night, as in the blindness of defence against innumerable odds and cries of terror ring through the distant set. Yet in a moment, after long resolve, the dawn has smitten the sky to reveal the enemy and cure the blindness of night.

The night brings fuel to the fright of wickedness. Every sound glare the slight of enemy’s plot. Yet at dawn there is view. At dawn there is hope. Dawn reveals the purpose of time lost in the dark. Awaken to find that the night was a chance for victory in thine anguish. Arise to take note that the hope has been fulfilled! Life is revived, and again sets out to flourish as the dawn breaks. Hold for the dawn, oh quitter! Wait for the time when thy hope shall be reality and thy time shall be fulfilled!

Dawn is near.

In the end of the sabbath, as it began to dawn toward the first day of the week, came Mary Magdalene and the other Mary to see the sepulchre. And, behold, there was a great earthquake: for the angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat upon it.
-Matthew 28:1-2

We have also a more sure word of prophecy; whereunto ye do well that ye take heed, as unto a light that shineth in a dark place, until the day dawn, and the day star arise in your hearts:
-II Peter 1:19

Nearly 2,000 years ago, at dawn, on that resurrection Sunday, Christ rose from the grave to prove victory over death and purity of His offered salvation. Receive His victory for your life, and await the dawn of His coming day.
