Things always seem worse in the middle of the night. There is a vulnerability that doesn’t exist in the light. During the day, you can distract yourself with people and responsibilities and work. But in the night it is just you and God; just your heart hammering against your chest and God whispering to your soul.
If I say, “Surely the darkness will overwhelm me, and the light around me will be night,” even the darkness is not dark to You, and the night is as bright as the day. Darkness and light are alike to You. (Psalm 139:11, 12)
There have been so many tests and decisions this week and some big, scary unknowns. But they are all known to God. This darkness is not dark to Him.
This darkness is exactly like light.
