God can bring light to a land of deep darkness. This is the miracle of grace, but sometimes the wait seems long. We are reminded oppression does not have the last word. A child of Light is promised, but even then the child has to grow up. Transformation takes time. Salvation takes time. We often need time to be ready to receive grace. We often need to extend grace and time to those who are recovering from oppression. Let's embrace God's Great Light and stand with the oppressed.
Scripture: Isaiah 9:2-6
