The Divine Light In Darkness !!!!!!

For thou wilt light my candle. (Psalm 18:28)

It may be that my soul sits in darkness; and if this be of a spiritual kind, no human power can bring me light. Blessed be God! He can enlighten my darkness and at once light my candle. Even though I may be surrounded by a “darkness which might be felt,” yet He can break the gloom and immediately make it bright around me.

The mercy is that if He lights the candle none can blow it out, neither will it go out for lack of substance, nor burn out of itself through the lapse of hours. The lights which the Lord kindled in the beginning are shining still. The Lord’s lamps may need trimming, but He does not put them out.

Let me, then, lite the nightingale sing in the dark. Expectation shall furnish me with music, and hope shall pitch the tune. Soon I shall rejoice in a candle of God’s lighting. I am dull and dreary just now. Perhaps it is the weather, or bodily weakness, or the surprise of a sudden trouble; but whatever has made the darkness, it is God alone who will bring the light. My eyes are unto Him alone. I shall soon have the candles of the Lord shining about me; and, further on in His own good time, I shall be where they need no candle, neither light of the sun. Hallelujah!

    I love Charles Spurgeon’s writings Levi. I have a complete library of his. I have to admit I have read very little out of those books. What I have read inspired me so much and caused me to think about it for some time. I really would like to sit down and read more on that methodist preacher.

      I have all of his volumes and haven’t read them all in 35 years yet. He is my favorite author though. Btw, he was a Baptist preacher. Lol. Have a great weekend.

    I appreciate what C.H. Spurgeon said in this post. Thank you for sharing it.
