Songs of Hope in the Night


Psalm 77:6 "I call to remembrance my song in the night: I commune with mine own heart: and my spirit made diligent search."


"Indeed it is extremely doubtful if a soul can really know the love of God in its richness and in its comforting, satisfying completeness until the skies are black and lowering." ~Malcolm J. McLeod


The Jews, historically, have considered the night to be the beginning of the day – rather than the end of the day.

In Genesis, by God's description, we see that the morning follows the night:


Genesis 1:5 "And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day."


Our night must preceed our day.


"Light comes out of darkness, morning out of the womb of the night." ~Malcolm J. McLeod


Are you in darkness?

Is the night surrounding you?

Does it feel that the daylight will never come?

Have faith, my friend!

You are learning of God in that darkness.  It is the beginning of your new day, even though the sun is dark and the moon is only a reflection of its brightness.

This is your "cool of the day" when God will come to walk with you in the garden of your heart. (Genesis 3:8)

From this darkness, you will gain the strength to live when the sun rises in its heat during the day.

Do not wish the darkness away. 

Bask in the quietness and commune with your God. 

He will give you a song in the middle of the night that will sustain you in the coming light of day.
