Darkness and Light


Psalm 139:11-12

If I say, “Surely the darkness will overwhelm me, And the light around me will be night,” Even the darkness is not dark to You, And the night is as bright as the day.

Even the darkness is not dark to the Lord. Our Heavenly Father sees it all. His knowledge of us, as well as the places and seasons we find ourselves in are known perfectly by God. We cannot hide anything from Him. All of our intentions and actions are revealed to Him whether it be our sin or good deeds. He knows what we do and why we do it. He understands our complexities and quirks; He appreciates the unique situations we face; He gets us better than our closest companions. And best of all, He cares. God relates intimately and personally with each and every one of us. So the next time you feel lonely or misunderstood, always remember that the Lord is beside you through the darkness and the light.
