Have you ever been through a dark time in your faith walk. And when there was no light at all. Your mind is like a roller coaster, and your foot is slowly starting to slip away from the firm foundation of that solid rock.The night of darkness has such much of stillness , you barely can hear the voice of God , or even feel his prescence . And all you hear is your own counsels and that evil dragon whispering his lies in your ear. Your like where is the Comforter in all this.The dark night of the soul is not fun, but rather a strong test of faith. Were you can't even put your trust in the basic foundation of what you know. Case in point read Job. He did not know that it wasn't so much about his devotion to the Lord ,but about having steadfast faith in the midst of loss, pain, agony, darkness, and no comfort from those you know. This is when I believe God is calling us to stretch out our faith, let go of all the theology, and draw from the new wine. As the word of God says in Mark 2:22- “And no one puts new wine into old wineskins. For the wine would burst the wineskins, and the wine and the skins would both be lost. New wine calls for new wineskins.” I think there is an hour where we do call out to God and say My God, MY God why have you forsaken me. As the word of God says in Matthew 27:46. Sometimes we go through a night in bottom of the earth. AS the word of God in Matthew 12:40-For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of a huge fish, so the Son of Man will be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. Even through the darknest, the tempter is high on our tails, because if he can get us to believe that we are disqualified that he can sift us out like wheat . But thankyou Jesus that he has pray for us. As the word of God says in Luke 22:31-“Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift all of you as wheat. 32But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.” In the darkness we must never think that darkness has swallow us because that it is a lie. Because the word of God says in John 1:5- The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcomea it. Matter fact we have this great power in us that will burst , if you believe. As the word of God says in 2 Corinthians 4:7-But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.It through dark night that we can sang the psalm 23:4- Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me. You must believe when there is not even a ounce of light that the Lord is still with you. As the word of God says in Isaiah 50:11- Who among you fears the Lord and obeys the word of his servant?Let the one who walks in the dark,who has no light,trust in the name of the Lord and rely on their God. No matter what know that Jesus still has a hold on you.As the word of God says in Psalm 139:7-
Where can I go to escape your spirit?
Where can I flee to escape your presence?
8If I were to ascend to heaven, you would be there.
If I were to sprawl out in Sheol, there you would be.
9If I were to fly away on the wings of the dawn,
and settle down on the other side of the sea,
10even there your hand would guide me,
your right hand would grab hold of me. Just know that through the dark night of your soul. Light will dawn. AS the word of God says in Isaiah 9:2-
The people walking in darkness
see a bright light;
on those who live in a land of deep darkness. Have hope because light is coming to you soon.Keep trusting,because Jesus still has his hands on you.
If you want a real relationship with Jesus just say this prayer and believe in your heart and say this prayer: Lord Jesus I believe you took upon all my sins on the cross. And took my punishment upon yourself so I could be forgiven completely.No more does the sins hold me back from your grace and mercy.I know have become a new creature in you. ANd know I believe that you will send me the Holy Spirit to me to live in me and rest upon my life in Jesus Name.Amen
Praise God you are a brand new creation in CHrist Jesus. Get you a bible, go to a God fearing church, and read the word of God daily, pray daily, and stay connected to Jesus and the body of Christ. God bless you on your journey.
