Who is like this over me? Christ, certainly. Who wants to be like this over others? I, for one. How? By rehearsing in my heart what truth is scripted across the sky every morning. What is that? The Light following darkness often stained crimson; the rising Son; the deep heights of God’s love; the cloudless expanse of eternity; the new life; the bright hope after rain; new mercies every morning.
These are truths so familiar to us that we feel them, but we must speak them in our hearts throughout the night hours and seasons. Those who know the script by heart have rehearsed it by moon glow and star shine, the only light given in darkened times. Those who know Truth have neither by darkness nor rain been overcome, but they have been overcome by light, mercy and hope. They are those who see God’s bright touch upon every drop of rain. Should they look down, they see the living color of God’s glory reflecting in the puddles; should they look up, they see the full spectrum of God’s inscrutable light, prisms arching over them, a promise. They are overcome by God’s righteous rule, and come over others with it.
