“And with a pillar of cloud You led them by day, And with a pillar of fire by night To light for them the way In which they were to go. [NASB] Nehemiah 9:12
Night time is the period between sunset and sunrise, a time when the sun disappears making way for darkness. Are you facing dark times in your life? Are you feeling a little gloomy, depressed, and low-spirited because of the uncertainties that come as a result of the period of darkness currently trailing you? The Lord Jesus says, He will be your light, the light that you need to help you through the difficult times in your life, into the life He created you to live. He is the brightness of the Glory of God, and in no time, He will make you what He is. So, don’t let the dark times bother you, your sunrise is on its way. Have faith in Jesus.
O LORD, you are my lamp. The LORD lights up my darkness [NLT] 2 Samuel 22:29
Since God has made you into a light, you no longer have any links with Darkness. Everything that brought unimaginable sadness, shame and scandal, humiliation, distress, broken heart, broken promises, disappointments, abandonment, rejection, trials of many kinds, was Darkness. But thank God for God, Our bright and Morning Star, came in and took away everything that reflected darkness in our lives and transformed us all into lights. Because in truth, nothing, not even darkness can ever stand in the brightness of His light, His glory. So don’t waste a moment longer of your life on those dark moments that used to throng your life, and focus on the fact that you are now reflecting the brilliance and brightness of God’s glory, our Lord Jesus Christ, and for that reason, no form of darkness can ever be able to withstand you all the days of your life!
