“You, Lord, hold my lamp burning; My God turns my darkness into gentle.” – Psalm 18:28 NIV

I sit right here at my pc at this time, eager to kind, however not likely realizing what to say. So many issues and individuals are on my coronary heart, with so little that I do know to do to assist. The world as an entire, in addition to our little worlds round us, can look so very darkish at instances. And so, I do the one factor I can: I’m going to God’s Phrase for reassurance of who He’s. I remind myself of all that He’s accomplished, and I discover hope in all that He is ready to do. In case you are in that place at this time, learn over this checklist, mark these verses in your Bible, and know, undoubtedly, that these items are true and may be trusted:

The Lord is right here in our midst (Zeph. 3:17). In the midst of darkish, messy, extremely painful issues. I do know that He illuminates the darkness when nothing and nobody else can (2 Sam. 22:29).

I do know that He won’t ever change, and He is identical yesterday, at this time, and perpetually (Heb. 13:8).

I do know that with every year that passes the exhausting issues don’t appear to get any much less…possibly much more (Ecc. 7:14). And I do know that the Lord has sustained me and people I like by all of them (Psalm 54:4).

And you’ll know these items too.

Within the verse on the prime, David mentioned “my God” and “my darkness” as a result of they had been his personally. All of us have darkish locations at instances. Arduous issues can go away us feeling misplaced and unseen. However you aren’t misplaced, and you aren’t unseen by Jesus. He’s the sunshine you’re on the lookout for. He’s the One, the one One who could make issues proper in your world. Don’t sit alone in these exhausting locations. Name out to Jesus, your private Savior, to convey you out of the darkness and into the sunshine with Him. I do know He’ll meet you there.

Let’s pray:

Pricey Jesus,
Life can really feel so very darkish at instances, not only for the world round me however for me personally. Assist me to show my eyes to you, to recollect the reality of who you’re, and to place my hope in you and your Phrase. Thanks for lighting up my darkness and assembly me the place I’m.
