Behind the darkest cloud, the sun is always shining.
I had just finished a talk at a local church about combating darkness and was on my way to a friend’s house for a much-anticipated lunch when I glanced up at the sky.
There was a very dark cloud just overhead with a round portal in the middle. I continue to watch as the cloud, slid over just enough to place the sun squarely in the center of the circle. In my spirit, I could clearly hear the voice of God say, “behind the darkest cloud, the sun is always shining.” It was then that I realized He had actually said, “the Son is always shining.”
What a precious promise for all who believe.
We live in the growing envelopment of spiritual darkness. This world seeks to engulf us into its abyss.
But, we have the greatest defense right at our disposal, morning, noon, and yes, right through the dark, dark night.
He is our promise to claim, even when we cannot see Him, He is always there. More brilliant than the noonday sun, more mighty in power than any adversary, and ready for battle to defend His children.
Listen as He speaks. “The Lord Himself goes before you and will be with you. He will never leave you or forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” Deuteronomy 31:8
