In Psalm 90:14, Moses prays to God, “Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.” Psalm 90 is Moses’ account of Israel’s “long dark night”, also known as 40 years wandering in the desert due to disobedience. The verse above demonstrates to all of us that even in the midst of the darkest night, there is going to be
a dawn in the morning that will include love, joy and gladness. Friends, the truth is that the “long dark night” is not able to go beyond the boundaries God has set for it in your life. Similar to how the sun will always come up at dawn no matter how much darkness there is through the night. We serve the God of the dawn. Though you might be walking through a long dark night, be encouraged that the night will come to an end and dawn will break through. Often times many of us say, “It might not” or “I might not ever”. I want you to know that God’s word says it “surely will”. Night is always necessary in order to know the beauty of the dawn and the day.
Let’s commit to spending less time this week fighting against the night and more time seeking the God of the dawn. Stay close to Jesus – Pastor Bryce
