"Unto the upright there ariseth light in the darkness..."
What a glorious promise this is for the Saint of God who currently sits under the clouds of discouragement. Light will arise! It is a spiritual law, just as the rising sun dissipates the darkness of night at dawn, so the Lord will chase away our spiritual gloom, and cause His light to restore rest to our souls. Hallelujah! However, when we are still under the darkness of our spiritual night, it is easy to become despondant and melancholic. Like righteous Lot, we feel vexed by the darkness all around us, and wonder, as though in the midst of winter, if the sun will ever shine upon us again.
Yet dear child of God, we have a promise, given by the Lord Himself, and therefore the forecast is sure, Light will arise! Faith sees beyond the present gloom, and expects all that is promised from the Giver, for His Word is as sure as His power, and He is above the storm of our souls. All He needs to do is issue forth the decree, 'Peace, be still,' and the storm will cease its raging, and the clouds will part, and heavenly light will comes through to meet our need once more.
