Singing in the Dark


Job 35:10 "But none saith, Where is God my maker, who giveth songs in the night;"


"…If God would make manifest the fact that 'He giveth songs in the night,' He must first make it night." ~Streams in the Desert


Remember, even when the night is so incredibly dark that you cannot see to take your next step, the Lord God sees all.  Nothing is hid from Him. 


Psalm 139:12 "Yea, the darkness hideth not from thee; but the night shineth as the day: the darkness and the light are both alike to thee."


"Passive faith but praises in the light,

When sun doth shine.

Active faith will praise in darkest night –

Which faith is thine?"

~Streams in the Desert


Cling to your Saviour in the darkness.  Lean on Him when your fear threatens to overwhelm you.  Allow Him to lead, step by step, and make no move without Him.

The Lord will guide you through the dark, teaching you to trust Him more, and giving you something to sing about as you journey together with Him.


Psalm 42:8 "Yet the LORD will command his lovingkindness in the daytime, and in the night his song shall be with me, and my prayer unto the God of my life."


When it is too dark to see the next step, when you are frozen by fear and your heart is melting within you, lift up a song of praise to your God.


Acts 16:35 "And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God: and the prisoners heard them."


Your time of deliverance will come.  Dawn will eventually appear. 

Until then, keep singing in the dark.
