“And it came to pass, when the priests were come out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the LORD, So that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the house of the LORD. Then spake Solomon, The LORD said that he would dwell in the thick darkness” (1 Kings 8:10-12).
Today’s Morsel: I believe that one of the greatest aspects of our faith is being able to see God in thick darkness. We must remember all the things that He’s done for us so that when we face the darkness (Satan’s demonic forces), we can still see Him at work before us. Micah stated to his enemies, “Rejoice not against me, O mine enemy: when I fall, I shall arise; when I sit in darkness, the LORD shall be a light unto me” (Micah 7:8). And Habakkuk felt the same way when he spoke, “Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The LORD God is my strength, and he will make my feet like hinds' feet, and he will make me to walk upon mine high places” (Habakkuk 3:17-19). Solomon said that God would dwell in the thick darkness. We can be confident that no matter where we are God will be there also.
Sing: Light of the world you stepped down into darkness, open my eyes let me see. Beauty You made, this heart adore you, hope of a life spent with You.
Chorus: Here I am to worship; Here I am to bow down; Here I am to say that You're my God. You're altogether lovely, altogether worthy, Altogether wonderful to me.
Thought For Today: He’s there even if you cannot see Him!
