Bible Ballistics: BBs #535   Faith Trusts In The Dark!!!

 

Israel went through the wilderness for forty years, and sometimes we can feel like we are in that situation; but our God is faithful in the wilderness, in the valley and on the mountain top!  He is with us in the light and in the dark—no matter how we “feel”, we must walk by faith and rely on our confidence in The One who holds “today” as well as “tomorrow” not our ‘feelings’!  (That might make a great song 🙂 !)

I simply want to share a brief reminder for us today.  As so many across the country are in difficult situations with floods, blizzards, ice and storms, political chaos and fear, but we can take heart knowing our God has us in HIS hand.

But now thus saith the LORD that created thee,

O Jacob,

and he that formed thee,

O Israel,

Fear not:

for I have redeemed thee,

I have called thee by thy name;

thou art mine.

2 When thou passest through the waters,

I will be with thee;

and through the rivers,

they shall not overflow thee:

when thou walkest through the fire,

thou shalt not be burned;

neither shall the flame kindle upon thee.

3 For I am the LORD thy God,

the Holy One of Israel,

thy Saviour…:”  Isaiah 43:1-3a

We can be victorious IN JESUS, because our God reigns!  And a young prophet and servant of God, Daniel, reminds us that when we are faced with the crises of life—our God still reigns!!! You can trust HIM in the dark—always!

Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel

in a night vision.

Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven.

20 Daniel answered and said,

Blessed be the name of God

for ever and ever:

for wisdom and might

are his:

21 And he changeth the times

and the seasons:

he removeth kings,

and setteth up kings:

he giveth wisdom

unto the wise,

and knowledge

to them that know understanding:

22 He revealeth the deep

and secret things:

he knoweth

what is in the darkness,

and the light

dwelleth with him.

23 I thank thee,

and praise thee,

O thou God of my fathers,

who hast given me wisdom

and might,

and hast made known unto me now

what we desired of thee:

for thou hast now made known unto us

the king’s matter.”  Daniel 2:19-23

Amen and Amen!!
