Hope For The Night Season
The Darkest Hour Before Dawn
No one really likes talking or thinking about the "Job experience", but what do you do when you find yourself there? What do you do when all hell has seemingly broken loose in your life? What do you do when all your days are dark as night and there is no apparent light in view? Job still trusted in God and never judged Him as unjust during this season in his life. Will you remain faithful when God considers you to be tested? Can you agree with Job, though He slays me, yet will I trust in Him?
I have been commissioned to encourage you not to lose hope during your night season. You have been chosen through the furnace of an affliction to be blessed. You have been chosen through opposition to endure, you have been chosen to walk into the promises of God, if you faint not in the day of adversity. Just stand still and see the salvation of the Lord. Trust God and know He is working it all out for your good.
As believers, you will experience a night season during your lifetime, but remember God is on your side. It is at those times of difficulty, you will discover God to be faithful! The word of God declares that light and darkness are the same to him; he is God of the night as well as the day. He only wants you to totally trust and obey and put your HOPE in him.
"This I recall to my mind therefore I have hope. It is of the Lord's mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning; great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion, saith my soul; therefore will I hope in him." Lamentations 3: 21-24
