Dark clouds over us
Whenever we think about our LORD, we always associate pure white and lots of bright light with Him. So, when things go wrong in our life, when darkness surrounds us, when we have no idea what is ahead of us, we are scared; we feel as if the LORD has forsaken us. We think that the LORD is far, far away from us.
But the Bible tells us something more encouraging.
When clouds and thick darkness surround you, dear friend, don’t lose heart. Because it means the LORD is very near, nearer than you think. We may not know where the LORD is because you are surrounded by clouds and thick darkness. We may not know where we are headed because it is too dark around us. We may be confused about tomorrow.
But among those dark clouds, in that thick darkness, the LORD is there. His mighty presence is there. And the right moment, not the moment we want, but at the right moment, the LORD will reveal Himself to us from those clouds and thick darkness. Not only He will reveal His glory to us, the second part of that verse says,
“Righteousness and justice are the foundation of His throne.”
– Psa. 97:2
Yes, the Righteous LORD will give everyone their dues; the Just LORD will deliver His justice.
So, if you are worried about this darkness that surrounds you, take a second to realize His presence. For, the LORD is nearer than you think; your deliverance is at hand. Amen.
Galatians 5:13 “You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.”
