Our meditation for Monday, April 2, 2012
Amos 8:9 “And it shall come to pass in that day, saith the Lord GOD, that I will cause the sun to go down at noon, and I will darken the earth in the clear day:” NKJV
Matthew 27:45 “From the sixth hour until the ninth hour darkness came over all the land.” NIV
Read: Amos 8:9 OT prophecy; Matthew 27:45, Luke 23:45 NT fulfillment
Thought to ponder: Darkness is blackest in contrast with the brightest light, just as sorrow is saddest, when compared to explicit joy. We cannot fully appreciate the light of day until we have experienced darkness!
Almighty God, Father and Creator of all things, once more I say “thank you” for this day. Thank you for allowing me to know the ‘Son’ shines brightest in the midst of my darkness. I thank you for every dark hour, because I know it your opportunity to show yourself mighty in my life. Thank you, when darkness covered the land, Your Son was swallowing death in victory! Thank you, in Jesus’ name I pray, Amen!
God bless you all...
