The sun sets and darkness fills the night but the morning always comes. Throughout our walk with the Lord Jesus, we come to a place of darkness. It is the Lord in His timing leading us to another layer that needs to be peeled back and revealed. The revelation of our own sin is never a pleasant experience. It can be extremely painful especially if it involves wounds caused by another. We have tried to fix, hidden from it or kept our pointing finger of blame on another. But the Lord says its time to take off the band-aid and lets look at this wound together.
“I see him, but not now; I behold him, but not near; A star shall come forth from Jacob, A scepter shall rise from Israel, And shall crush through the forehead of Moab, And tear down all the sons of Sheth. Numbers 24:17
We can acknowledge to God how much it hurts, how wrong it was and even our pointing finger we have been directing at God. We can let down the blinders, the protective gear we’ve put on ourselves that hasn’t really protected anything but tried to hide it all away. Looking at the wound, really seeing it is in the expression of your thoughts and feelings to the Lord. It is a release of that which has been holding you in bondage; keeping you in the wilderness of your soul rather than living the abundant life in the presence of the Lord in His sanctuary that is within you. We can arise when the morning comes and go to the promised land; it is the heavenly realms within the very sanctuary of your being.
“I, Jesus, have sent My angel to testify to you these things for the churches I am the root and the descendant of David, the bright morning star.” Revelation 22:16
But we are in the darkness and is it overwhelming. Be on guard for the enemy awaits. We can’t allow the enemy of our soul to discourage us; to make us turn away from the wound and God. We must hold onto the anchor of our soul. Jesus came to set the captives free. He is the bright morning star. And every dark night of the soul is followed by the bright joy of the morning.
