When you’re in the dark (1)

‘Even in darkness light dawns for the upright.’ Psalm 112:4 NIV

Faith is like film; it’s developed in the dark. Dark days make you lean on God. The truth is, if your faith was never tested, you wouldn’t be motivated to draw closer to Him. Hymnist Edward Mote wrote: ‘When darkness veils His lovely face, I rest on His unchanging grace… When all around my soul gives way, He then is all my hope and stay. On Christ, the solid Rock, I stand; all other ground is sinking sand.’

It’s easy to praise God when your health is good and your bills are paid. But it’s during the dark days that you discover what your faith is made of and where your trust truly lies: in yourself, in others, or in God. When your days feel as dark as your nights, here is a Scripture you can stand on: ‘Let the one who walks in the dark, who has no light, trust in the name of the Lord and rely on their God.’ (Isaiah 50:10 NIV)

Job lived an exemplary life, yet he lost everything. Troubled and perplexed, he cried, ‘He has blocked my way so I cannot pass; He has shrouded my paths in darkness.’ (Job 19:8 NIV) Job could see no way through or around the situation. Then he discovered that when you can’t find the reason, you can trust the relationship.

‘My ears had heard of You but now my eyes have seen You.’ (Job 42:5 NIV) When he made that discovery, everything changed: ‘The Lord blessed the latter part of Job’s life more than the former part.’ (Job 42:12 NIV) What God did for Job—He will do for you.

SoulFood: Deut 11– 13 Mark 2:23–3:6 Ps 78:65– 72 Pro 17:1–2
