Grow In The Dark

19 12 2007

Lately I keep hearing about how people are enduring some real dark times. Financial stress, job uncertainty, health challenges, family squabbles, and heavy emotions seem to be some of the most frequent issues, all of which seem to intensify during the holidays.

Then I came across two verses in Isaiah 45:2,3 that I have read and heard so many times before but had never understood how they pertain to times of personal darkness, until now:

“I will go before you and will level the mountains; I will break down gates of bronze and cut through bars of iron. I will give you the treasures out of darkness, riches stored in secret places, so that you may know that I am the Lord…”

If we allow God to help us adjust our eyes to the darkness, we can look around and discover valuable lessons to enrich us for our future. The proper perspective of looking to learn during darkness will help us to (BE)TTER.
