The path of the righteous is like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of day. (Proverbs 4:18)
Most of us desire that God blesses us and our families with diverse blessings, but blessings that we ask of God do not come all at once. Why so? when God is All powerful and Almighty? Surely he has the authority and resources to give us all that we ask; immediately.
Have you seen the sun rise? Does it just pop up right above where you are standing early in the morning? No, it slowly rises in the east, what the writer of the above promise calls the 'first gleam of dawn.' And then it has a course to travel through the day to the west where it sets finally.
The path of the righteous can also be traced similarly according to this promise and as the sun shines brightly and at its maximum intensity, so does the one who obeys the Word of God and live according to it.
Shining brightly for Christ wherever one is. At home, at the work place, in church or wherever one be. The light of Christ will shine through the believer who is willing to follow the righteous path.
Right from the book of Genesis, we see that God desires to bless them who are willing to obey him. He has not changed and never will. The righteous will surely be blessed, slowly but surely, like the first gleam of dawn, shining ever brighter till the full light of day.
The Bible says,
Those who are wise will shine like the brightness of the heavens, and those who lead many to righteousness, like the stars for ever and ever. (Daniel 12:3)
So, "Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the LORD rises upon you. (Isaiah 60:1)
