When darkness overshadows you…
Who is among you that fears the Lord, that obeys the voice of His servant... let him trust in the name of the Lord, and stay upon his God. Isaiah 50:10
I’ve always been amazed by the advice worldly people give to someone who’s hurting: “When you get to the end of your rope, tie a knot and hang on!” Can you visualize someone dangling over a cliff, holding onto a rope, and trying to tie a knot? It takes two hands to do that!
The first thing we need to remember is “Don’t demand to understand.” There are some things in life you and I will never understand. When God allows darkness to overshadow your life, don’t set about trying to explain it. That’s a recipe for frustration.
Trust that His light will come. “Stay upon God” in the Amplified reads, “Let him rely on, trust in, and be confident in the name of the Lord, and let him lean upon and be supported by his God.”
Wait for Him. He will come to you. He is walking beside you.
There’s someone out there who is hurting today and needs more than a pat answer of encouragement. Give them the light of Christ.
