From the Heart of God:
I call forth the sun to shine
And the stars to display their beauty, as each is revealed in the night sky.
Day and night has its own beauty.
Some beauty only revealed in the sunshine, and others only seen in the dark.
There is day and there is night,
So that you may see different aspects of My beauty and love and grandeur.
Do not be afraid of the dark.
Darkness will come, but look up!
Fix your eyes on Me, the Author and Perfector of your faith.
Eyes on Me.
Though the earth should change and the mountains slip into the heart of the sea,
you need not fear.
I am a very present help in trouble (Psalm 46:1, 2).
My love for you is unfailing.
Look ‘there’ (at My great love for you).
Trust ‘there’, ‘eyes on Me’, and cling to hope.
You will hope once again.
Great light will shine forth in darkness.
Allow Me to shine brightly through you and dispel darkness. It need not overtake you.
As the world, in fear, cries out in essence, “The sky is falling, the sky is falling,”
My people will have a quiet confidence in Me,
that I will give.
I am your refuge and strength, but you must take it to have it.
Cling to My Word and My Promises.
The world is continually trying to “make crooked the straight ways of the Lord” (Acts 13:10), but the world does not change My ways.
No matter how many times they may change their opinion,
My Word stands true and unchanging and CONSTANT.
Be a lighthouse, immovable, showing THE WAY,
warning others as they navigate dangerous waters.
Let your light shine, showing, “This is the ROCK, this is solid ground”
and warning them to navigate carefully as My word is unmovable and irrevocable.
I cause storms, and I am able to make them perfectly calm (Psalm 107:25, 29).
Be those who hear and DO the Word, that your house may stand (Matthew 7:24).
Be ready to give an answer for the hope that you have in the midst of the storm.
They will see a great light. Let it be Me.
Shine for My glory, that they too may glorify My name.
This was originally posted in 2013 on my blogspot, and it is a word that comes to mind so often and still speaks so loudly to my heart. I hope it does the same for you. For those of you who are personally facing dark days, I pray that it speaks encouragement and strengthens your resolve to trust Him and His love. He is so trustworthy and full of love for you. You are not alone, and you WILL hope again. Take His confidence, and cling to His promises. Your life is a beautiful testimony of His glory.
