THE NIGHT AND THE MORNING HE CALLED DAY
Notice: during the creation process God counts days based on the previous night. He doesn't say, "The morning and the evening were the first day" No, the Bible says, "God called, the evening and the morning were the first day God specializes in bringing light out of darkness; you just have to get through one to get to the other!
Psalm 42:8 says, Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life.
In the Old Testament God told Moses that the Angel of Death would strike during the night But wherever God saw "the blood upon the lintel", (Ex 12:23), that household would be saved The Bible says in Exodus that God, "Sent a... wind that blew all night until there was dry land . And the Israelites walked through" (Ex 14:21-22 CKV) How wonderful, God worked in the darkness!
David said, "Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning" (Psalm 30:5). The dawn is always more brilliant because of the preceding darkness, just as your progress is all the more remarkable when painted against a backdrop of pain, challenge and break through.
Great mornings come from rough nights! Look at somebody who's having a great day and chances are, you're seeing somebody who's been through a dark night. Whenever they finally shout the victory it's because they've spent the night weeping before God.
says, "Let us hold fast . . .hope without wavering. . .He who promised is
faithful" (Heb 10:23 NKJV) Trusting God is more than just wishful thinking;
it's knowing that if He said it - HE will do it; that He doesn't just control
creation, He also controls your circumstances - so holdfast!
