“And there was evening and there was morning, one day” (Gen. 1:5).
There are times in the life of faith when we walk in darkness, as in the night, not spiritual darkness. Simply because there is a period not directly in the metaphorical sunshine, where everything is shiny and happy, does not mean you are out of God’s will.
Jacob wrestled with God at night (Gen. 32:24), spoke with Him, held on to Him, and was blessed by Him, all under the cover of night; until Jacob walked out into the sunrise, forever changed.
Remember, sometimes the greatest transformations happen as we wait for sunrise.
“And so we have the prophetic word confirmed, which you do well to heed as a light that shines in a dark place, until the day dawns and the morning star rises in your hearts” (II Pet. 1:19).
Be well. Shalom.
