When darkness overtakes the godly, light will come bursting in. Psalm 112:4, NIV.
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Anytime you are going through difficult, dark times, know that God already has a plan to bring you through to victory. When you call on His name, when you surrender your circumstances to Him, thats when His light will come forth through the darkness. Notice, its not going to trickle in, its not going to just barely get there. No, like a flood, like the breaking forth of waters, its going to come bursting in!
I believe it means that suddenly, youre going to get well. Suddenly, you will meet the right person. Suddenly, youre able to pay your house off. Our attitude should be, My child may be off course, making poor decisions, but Im expecting a flood of Gods mercy to bring him back. Or, My house has been on the market for a year and still hasnt sold, but Im expecting a flood of favor to cause it to stand out and sell.
In the midst of that difficulty, dont get discouraged. Youre in a prime position to see a flood of Gods goodness. Keep praising Him. Keep thanking Him and stay in faith because His light will break through the darkness!
A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for being the light of the world. Today I lift my heart to You trusting that Your light will burst forth through the darkness. Thank You for Your good plan to renew and restore me in Jesus name. Amen.
