Dark · Light

to Him… darkness is not dark…

A dramatic reading of a psalm in worship… reminds… to Him… darkness is not dark…

…even the darkness is not dark to you;
the night is bright as the day,
for darkness is as light with you.
Psalm 139:12 ESV
…darkness is not dark to You…

When darkness closes in on our lives… we feel alone… oppressed… overwhelmed…
Yet… the darkness is not dark to Him… He sees through it… and in His Sovereignty… turns it to light…
…darkness is as light with You…

With You… Lord… darkness is as light…
You were with Joseph… and at the end of his ordeal… he said to his brothers… who threw him into darkness…
“… As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good,
to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, 
as they are today. …”
Genesis 50:20 ESV
You only allow what You intend… for good… and the saving of many lives…
Help me to remain with You… whenever darkness presses in… no matter what form it takes…
Remind me… darkness… is… as… light… with… You…
And we know that for those who love God
all things work together for good,
for those who are called according to his purpose.
Romans 8:28 ESV
