No one truly delights in embracing the darkness that we often-time must travel.
Is it not much easier to trust God in the brightness of the day?
Many a day will be dark and dreary,
obscuring the heart’s ability to emote joy and excitement.
Now is the time of testing,
now is the best timing for inner introspective analysis!
Now is the time for light to shine into the darkness of one’s heart.
Now is the time to stop living one’s personal deceptions that darken and enslaves your soul.
Now is the time to “Wish that It Will Rain!”
The truth of who we really are and the motives surrounding our hidden intents
must be tested during our life’s hardships and catastrophic encounters,
while there still is Light in the earth.
The Master stated,”My light will shine for you just a little longer. Walk in the light while you can, so the darkness will not overtake you. Those who walk in the darkness cannot see where they are going. [John 12:35]
The secret to overcoming trials and testings is to embrace the actual suffering itself,
while not permitting our spirit to resist the chief rationale for it:
“Knowing that the testing of your faith produces Endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, that you may be perfect [mature] and complete, lacking in nothing!” [James 1:3-4]
Will you consider praying with me on today, that each follower of The Messiah, will learn how to embrace each trial and testing that our Creator has for us, while each of us will not lose sight of its spiritual significance in our lives?
