If I say, “Surely the darkness shall fall on me,” even the night shall be light about me. (Psalm 139:11)
In the ancient world there was some superstition about the magical quality of the night that could be invoked. Beneath this spell, one could hide—even from the eye of the all-seeing One. David, under the impression of God’s Spirit, said, “Not so.” He said that with God, night does not do what it is intended to do. Even in the night hours, He sees him. So the psalmist decides rather than resist, he will submit and comply. He says, “Search me, God and know my heart. And in so doing, see if there is any twisted way in me.”
In Living in the In-Between Times, Pastor Ralph Douglas West brings the story of the Old Testament prophet Samuel to life, showing you how God speaks in your “in betweens” and what it looks like to live faithfully in these seasons of waiting and wondering.
