The Fountain Day 228: Even the darkness is as light to Him

As I went for a walk, just before dark, I was startled by a beautiful and breathtaking sight.  I looked up into the still blue sky and saw the moon perched up…looking as if it didn’t quite belong yet.  Now, I’ve often seen the moon in our sky at unusual times, but for some reason this time was different.  I could feel the Lord stirring me as He whispered, “Notice this…and ask Me about it.”  Then I heard, “Even the darkness is as light to Him.”

My breath caught in my throat with a mixture of delight and awe.  What a wonderful God we serve.  He is truly amazing.

This wonderful reminder will be deeply engrained within my heart for years to come. 

Not only was the moon oddly placed for that time of day, but God sent it as a reminder to me that no matter what things appear to be, He can be found, and His plan will overturn all others.  He is Sovereign.

God is Sovereign over every plan and scheme of the devil…no darkness is too dark for Him.  He is Light, therefore wherever His Presence goes, light is found.  We carry His light, therefore wherever we go, there should be light.  God is light and in Him there is no darkness.

He is called the Father of Lights. 

Never be afraid of evil men.  Never bow to evil intentions.  Never worry that God can’t do a thing.  He can do anything.  Do you trust Him?

We are to be carriers of Light…this means at times we will stick out to the world.  Are you willing to do that?

This is a time for the stirring up of courage.  This is a time to step out from the shadows and be light.  The world is desperate for salvation…they are desperate for light.  Let’s be just that…God’s light shining for the world to see and be drawn to Him.

God created light with a word…”Let there be light.”  If His words carry power like that…imagine what He can do right now. 

Speak light to our nation, God.  Speak restoration and deliverance to Your people.  Let it be so because You say it is so.  I trust the power of Your word.  I trust You.  Shine light into every dark place, Lord.  Fill the earth with Your glory.  Let there be light!! In Jesus’ name, Amen.

Where can I go from Your Spirit?  Where can I flee from Your Presence?  If I go up to the heavens, You are there; if I make my bed in the depths, You are there.  If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there Your hand will guide me, Your right hand will hold me fast.  If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” even the darkness will not be dark to You; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.  Psalm 139:7-12
