Who is among you that…walketh in darkness and hath no light? let him trust in the name of the Lord, and stay upon his God.
These are not merely days of disaster but days of darkness, when there is no sense of God’s presence, when He seems to hide His face. Like Job, we go forward, but He is not there; and backward, but we cannot perceive Him: on the left hand, where He doth work, but we cannot behold Him: and He hideth Himself on the right hand, that we cannot see Him.
These are days when the unexplainable happens, the dark sinister things that doesn’t make sense, when our experience is against us, when we can feel no inspiration, when all we have believed seems crushed and Satan laughs and tells us our faith is a fraud.
God trusts some of His children with a walk in the dark. They may even so leave this world. But He will raise them all in the morning. And never do we glorify Him more than when we trust in His Name and stay upon Him, anyhow, come what may, regardless.
