It’s Always Darkest Right Before the Dawn

22 Then Moses turned to the Lord and said, “O Lord, why have You done evil to this people? Why did You ever send me? 23 For since I came to Pharaoh to speak in Your name, he has done evil to this people, and You have not delivered Your people at all.” ~ Exodus 4:1

The LORD had just sent Moses and Aaron to Pharaoh for the first time, but Pharaoh, instead of letting God’s people go, made their work harder. The people of Israel then turned to Moses and started accusing him. So, fear struck Moses’ heart because he never believed he should go in the first place, but now the people of Israel are getting punished for His obedience to God.

Fear will show darken everything around you as much as possible so that you won’t realize dawn is right around the corner. In order to make it to the bright, beautiful sunny day, you have to first make it through the cold, dark night. In the beginning, God said there was darkness, then God spoke into that darkness and made light. He also said there was evening then morning. Jesus went through His night, the suffering of the cross and death so that He might reap His day, the joy that was set before Him (Hebrews 12:2).

Don’t let fear convince you that night will last forever. It may get very dark, and you may be very afraid, but it’s always darkest right before the rising of the sun. And when that sun rises, joy will come. For joy comes in the morning.

Dear LORD, please give us the faith, courage, and strength to make it through our darkest nights. Please don’t allow fear to consume us by lying to us and showing us only the darkness around us. Show us Your hope in the darkness, oh LORD, and teach us to see Your light no matter what time of night it is. In Jesus’ name, I pray, amen.
