Have you been through dark times? Dark nights? perhaps you’re going through a dark period of your life now?
Psalm 17:3 (NKJV)
You have tested my heart; You have visited me in the night; You have tried me and have found nothing; I have purposed that my mouth shall not transgress.
Sometimes we lay in bed at night, surrounded by darkness, longing for sleep but consumed with our thoughts and questions. The Psalmists, especially David, were candidly honest about their literal and spiritual dark nights. David made good use of his sleepless nights, crying out to God for relief and answers (Psalm 22:2, 42:8). And he relied on the natural order of things to remind him that “weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning” (Psalm 30:5)
If you are in the midst of your own dark night, use the time wisely. If there are tears, let the water the words you pour out to God, remembering that joy comes in the morning.
I really want to encourage you to be diligent with your Bible study time, because God has so much more for us than we can get from just going to church once or twice a week and hearing someone else talk about the Word. When you spend time with God, your life will change in amazing ways, because God is a Redeemer. There’s nothing that’s too hard for Him, and He can make you whole, spirit, soul and body!
