When encountering a dark night of the soul, one must search for opportunities to pierce the darkness with God’s light and hope. Reading and proclaiming the Holy Scriptures dynamite the powers of darkness.
In recounting his troubles, the prophet Micah announced: “Do not rejoice over me, my enemy; When I fall, I will arise; When I sit in darkness, the Lord will be a light to me.” (Micah 7:8)
Although we as Micah acknowledge the enemy’s presence, we also proclaim the Lord’s power to illuminate our darkness. In the midst of misery, our announcement of God’s ever present and faithful light dispels darkness and ushers forth hope.
Regardless of one’s multiple heartaches, God’s light always overcomes the darkness as we cry out to Him.
