harder to navigate at night and instead of observing the wildlife we found ourselves dodging them as they bolted in and out of the headlights. What seems easy and pleasant in the daylight can turn rough and disagreeable when darkness overtakes the day. Putting your hands in the driver’s ability is no problem when you can see where you’re going, but in the depth of the darkness you just have to hold on and trust them even when you can’t see.
Everyone wants pleasant sunny days. We love to bask in God’s blessings
and enjoy His beautiful world. We never know when the day will turn dark and
some downturn of events comes upon us, literally obscuring our beautiful view.
Everyone knows that there’s a time for the day and a time for the night, but
really it’s hard to accept when it does come. What do we do when the mountains
of difficulty, sorrow or loss loom in our horizon? Where do we go to find
comfort and help to see things through? How do we know we will make it? It’s
hard to negotiate the curves and the climb is so very steep?
there is One Who is with you in the pleasant days of joy and peace. He is the
Same One Who is with you in the hard times and dark moments of life that must be
faced. Run to the Lord, the One Who is your Navigator. He Who is with you in the
good times and the warmth of sunlight will also be with you in the nights of
your life. He loves you and because He loves you He will get you through
whatever it is you must negotiate. He’ll see you through sorrow, despair, and
even death. There is absolutely nothing you cannot trust Him with, because even
when you can’t see ahead, He knows the way! He will guide you with His loving
care all the way through. He who promises to see you through will also give you
songs in the night. Put your life in the One Who sees it all and promises that
your life will be kept all the way to heaven.
Isaiah 51:16 And I have
put my words in your mouth and hidden you safely in my hand. I stretched out the
sky like a canopy and laid the foundations of the earth. I am the one who says
to Israel, 'You are my people!'"
Psalm 42:8 But each day the LORD pours
His unfailing love upon me, and through each night I sing His songs, praying to
God who gives me life.
Psalm 16:7 I will bless the LORD who guides me;
even at night my heart instructs me.
Psalm 126:5 Those who plant in tears
will harvest with shouts of joy.
