THOUGH YOU SIT IN DARKNESS I WILL BE YOUR LIGHT.
Sometimes you need to rest in the shadows.
If you continue pushing yourself—ignoring how weary you are—you may collapse altogether.
Many of My followers drive themselves to the point of exhaustion or utter discouragement, while pretending everything is all right.
Your enemy the devil rejoices—even gloats—when he sees this happening.
He understands the power of pretense to weaken My children till they are easy prey for him.
Do not panic when you have fallen, for you will rise again.
Be content to sit in darkness while I refresh your spirit, mind, and body.
I am as fully present with you when you are sitting as when you are standing or walking.
Look for Me in the shadowy place where you find yourself now.
I want to shelter and nurture you under My wings, where you will find refuge.
While you are relaxing, I will be your Light—protecting, healing, and restoring you.
When My work of restoration is finished, you can crawl out from under My wings: ready to rise again and continue your journey.
My Presence will go with you, illuminating the way before you—strengthening and encouraging you. Hope in Me, My child, for you will again praise Me for the help of My Presence.
"From " Jesus Lives " by Sarah Young
"Do not gloat over me, my enemy! Though I have fallen, I will rise. Though I sit in darkness the Lord will be my light." MICAH 7:8
"Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour."
1 PETER 5:8
"He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings you will find refuge; his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
"Why are you in despair, O my soul? And why have you become disturbed within me? Hope in God, for I shall again praise Him for the help of His presence."
PSALM 42:5 NASB
