The Night Will End

1 When the people saw that Moses delayed to come down from the mountain, the people gathered themselves together to Aaron and said to him, “Up, make us gods who shall go before us. As for this Moses, the man who brought us up out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has become of him.” ~ Exodus 32:1

The night sometimes feels never-ending. Every time God did something miraculous for the people of Israel, Pharaoh would relent just to change his mind. He even made their work harder for them. Then when they finally felt they were safe, here comes Pharaoh and his army blocking them in against the Red Sea. Now that their free from Pharaoh, Moses has disappeared on Mount Sinai for days. They haven’t seen him or heard from him, so fear strikes their hearts, and they fall back into their old ways.

This is how it is with us today. When we get saved, sometimes the process to our Helmet of Salvation is a tedious long battle. We try to go to Church, but something comes up. We try to pray, but we don’t feel we know how. We try to worship, but we feel self-conscious. We try to follow God, but it feels impossible. And at each and every step, fear and doubt are right there in our ears, reminding us of our past. They’re telling us we can’t do it. They’re telling us we’re not good enough. Fear and doubt will keep you wondering in the wilderness for as long as you allow them to.

When thoughts of doubt, self-hatred, shame, or anything discouraging enters our minds, we have to fight it. How? Refuse to think those thoughts by quoting Scripture and reminding yourself of who you are in Christ Jesus. The night may seem endless, but don’t worry, joy comes in the morning.

Peace. Love. Go Forth and Wait Out The Night.
