'WHEN DARKNESS LOOMS'

"For You will light my candle: the Lord my God will enlighten my darkness" - Psalms 18:28
.
Darkness is an inevitable state of life that everyone would find themselves in. There's always night and day is every blessed day that God gives us the privilege to see.
.
Darkness is confusion, ignorance, inability to know what to do in the midst of the demanding challenges of life.
.
In the beginning that God created the heaven and the earth, darkness still finds its way upon the face of the deep (Gen. 1:2). It was when God commanded light that darkness gave way and He knew what to do afterwards.
.
Everyone in life will always face a period of darkness - when you don't know what to do or how to go about certain situations of life; but rather than give up, there’s a way (Jesus).
.
In John's account of Jesus feeding the 5000, He tested Philip to know what he'll do to feed the people even in the wilderness (John 6:1-11). But Jesus wasn't confused as to knowing what to do.
.
You will be worried, confused, perplexed, stagnant or frustrated in life when you don't know what to do in the midst of your darkness.
.
So when darkness looms around your life, what you need is an access to light. The greater the light, the faster the darkness disappears. There are people who walk in darkness (Is. 9:2) and there are people who sit in darkness (Is. 42:7).
.
Until light comes, darkness will fully take over.
.
When darkness looms around your life, you won't know who to marry or you'd marry wrongly; you won't know what to do to get out of your problems; the kind of job to take but when light comes, darkness gives way.
.
Remember, your access to Jesus is your only way of getting out of life's darkness when it looms.
