“What I tell you in the dark, say in the light, and what you hear whispered, proclaim on the housetops.” Matthew 10:27
If you have been a believer for any length of time you know that some of our most fruitful times of growth are in the midst of trial and suffering. It is often in the darkest hours of our lives that our ears are the keenest to the whispers of God. He teaches us things that we are only able to receive when we have reached the end of ourselves. And we are most inclined to reach the end of ourselves during dark times of suffering.
What God teaches us in the dark is not intended to stay in the dark. I remember being told by some dear saint (I can’t remember who) “What we learn in the dark is still true in the light.”
Some of the best life lessons are learned in the darkest times of our lives.
We can be pretty confident we will have opportunity to share with others God’s whispers when they go through dark times as well. Share what God has given you.
