In the Darkness

In the Darkness

There is a purpose at work in dark places. The sovereign Lord of heaven and earth is fulfilling His promise of salvation to us in the night as well as the day. Interpreting providence is difficult, sometimes confusing. We may not be able to put all the pieces together, but that is not the point. The point is to believe that God knows what He is doing. “In the grip of the mystery of God’s providential dealings with us, this is the very acme and apex of faith. To put it very simply, it means that our resting place, as we may be faced with the mystery of God’s secret will, is ‘I do not know, but I know that God knows.’ The judge of all the earth will do right.”
