God created this earth and was talking about day and night He did something that sounds backward to most of us. (And evening passed and morning came, marking the first day). God started the day He gave us with night first.
We might be living with the darkness of “stuff” going on in our lives but at some point, the morning will break through. I like mornings when the sun comes out and it is no longer night out there. The night is rather creepy at times for you don’t know what or who might be creeping about. Bad things in life seem to happen a lot more at night than they do during the day. Maybe bad happens more in the darkness because there is so much evil out in this world and crooks, murderers, and so on seem to come out of the woodwork then.
I know that my God is with me even at the times in my life I don’t feel His presence. I also know that He arranged all of the planets at the perfect distance from the sun and keeps them on the course each day. Since He can do that I also know that no matter what I might be going through God can tackle anything in my life. Oh, He might allow things for the evening/season of my life, but at some point, I will get up and my circumstances will be in the light where they can be dealt with. Darkness Always Ends No matter how your day goes, the sun always rises the next day. You get a fresh start. (I love all the fresh starts my Lord has given to me)
God created the sunset-sunrise pattern for a reason. We don’t understand always the night first and then the light, but that is how the pattern is. If only we are patient and hang in there then the dawn will come. Maybe part of this darkness/light is a reminder of when things get difficult that the morning will come soon. Remember our time is not God’s time. He is outside of time as we know it. “And there was evening and there was morning, one day” (Genesis 1:5). The Jewish calendar follows suit with that original creation account. That calendar runs from sunset to sunset. The darkness comes first, then light.
David wrote, “Weeping may last for the night, but a shout of joy comes in the morning” (Psalm 30:5).
There is hope for every one of us. Miracles are still out there. God is not ignoring us and is always there for His kids. He doesn’t always answer like we, as humans, think He should or in the period we feel He should. The darkness of our situation will end and we will again see the light.
We also need to do our part in whatever situation we find ourselves in. We can’t just sit there and think God will do everything if we are not willing to do our part to find a solution. All situations are different but don’t waller in the night, the morning is coming and the sun will come out. Look up for there are answers and help out there no matter how dire your situation might be.
God bless your day and situation. Look up! Hold on! Don’t give up!
