Treasures of the darkness

| FRM News

I will go before you and make the crooked places straight; I will break in pieces the gates of bronze and cut the bars of iron. I will give you the treasures of darkness and hidden riches of secret places, that you may know that I, the LORD, Who call you by your name, am the God of Israel.  Isaiah 45:3


“…God has taught me this lesson by experience and from His Word, sometimes His glory is in the darkness…Everybody else wants to stand back from the darkness (Exodus 20:21: So the people stood afar off, but Moses drew near the thick darkness where God was), I can remember a point in time telling God, ‘Everybody else wants to stand back from the darkness – the problems, the pressures, the things you don’t understand’…Moses embraced the darkness because he KNEW that is where he would know God in a way he wouldn’t in the light. I told God, ‘I also will embrace the darkness – suffering, pressures, pain, things I don’t understand, things that don’t make sense – because I want to know God. There are some ways you know Him in the darkness; you don’t know Him out there’…”  Anne Graham Lotz

Be still and know He is God. He has treasures for you too in this dark time. It’s here alone, broken, and without illumination that many learn to hear His heart, not just His voice, His heart…
