“Who among you fears the LORD and obeys the voice of his servant? Let him who walks in darkness and has no light trust in the name of the LORD and rely on his God.” Isaiah 50:10
In difficult times, we may believe that they will last forever or that they will never end. Time appears to stop and run very slowly at that point. We wish this storm would calm down soon, but only God knows when it will truly pass.
When a storm is brewing, what is our first reaction? And how do we react when the darkness arrives? Are we silently watching in fear, anticipating how the storm will engulf us? Or do we face it fearlessly because we trust in the Lord and find peace in the shadow of His wings?
Having faith in the Lord during dark times alleviates the burden of figuring out how to deal with all the upheaval. And the truth is that we are incapable of overcoming such adverse weather conditions, but the Lord is: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13
Do we trust Him with our journey even when we don’t see a way forward? This is the best decision we can make at that moment and on a daily basis:
“Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
Remember that when we get down on our knees and humble ourselves before the Lord, great miracles and reversals often occur. Perhaps in our minds or hearts, which adds a new dimension and perspective to the situation. When we come to His throne with humble hearts, the Lord strengthens us and gives us firmness, endurance, and peace.
During the storm, Satan wants us to be in despair, hopelessness, and darkness. But God desires that we rely on His strength and not wonder why this is happening to us, but rather what the Lord desires that we learn. You can still know peace without knowing what comes next.
In these uncertain times, where is our camera pointing? When we think of darkness, our hearts become dark, gloomy, and weak; however, when we think of Christ, our minds clear and our hearts rejoice because this is a new growth opportunity. It’s beneficial to be tested because when we pass, we gain new roots of wisdom, tenacity, and strength.
Do we seek out worldly things to ease trials?
Trials help us to become more mature, consistent, and stable. How are we interacting during the test? Let us respond in a way that pleases God. Let us think of trials as pure joy. Adversity and need teach us gratitude.
Dark days are frequently an indicator of what kind of test we are from and who we truly trust. Let us refine our understanding of what pleases the Lord.
Trust, faith, and stillness are unquestionably pleasing to the Lord.
Let us not be afraid of the dark and storm, wondering what will happen. But let us fear the Lord, who can pull us out of any tornado whirlwind.
Remember, with Christ in the vessel, we can face the storm with a smile. Jesus is the light that outshines the darkness
Finally, I’d like to share an encouraging quote that I once read:
“When problems come into your life like a non-stop rain, always remember that God will always be your umbrella.”
May God bless you and give you the strength to persevere in difficult times. 🙂
