I will bless the Lord who counsels me; he gives me wisdom in the night. He tells me what to do.
I am always thinking of the Lord; and because he is so near, I never need to stumble or fall.Psalm 16:7-8
What’s the difference between God giving us wisdom in the night as opposed to the day? I think one thing, is that our day is filled with many distractions, so many of us tune out the Holy Spirit. Our minds settle at night, after all the adrenaline slows down, along with our heart rate and God is able to download his mind into our hearts, if we make time for Him.
There’s another way to look at this. The term, “night” is also translated as, “night seasons.” You could be in a dark season in your life. When we face trials, we tend to draw closer to God for help.
Who are you listening to?
The scripture says, “He tells me what to do.” The question is, “Are you always thinking of the Lord?” as verse 8 says. If you do, the bible tells us that you’re able to recognize His presence and you know that God is near.
Therefore, when God is guiding you through the night of your life, He is your nightlight. He is able to keep you from falling, when you trust in Him and the psalmist says, in another version, “I will not be moved.”
Pray this prayer to the Lord:
Lord, you help me to be wise and knowledgeable.
Instruct me even in the dark seasons of my life.
I know that in You, I shall NOT be MOVED!
In the name of Jesus.
Today, if you have not received Salvation or you would like to rededicate your life back to Christ, say this prayer:
God, I know that I am a sinner. Right now, Lord, I turn from my sins, and I ask you to forgive me. Jesus, I believe that you died on the cross and rose from the grave, for me. I open my heart and life for You to come in, and I receive You as my Lord and Savior. Thank You, God for saving me. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Read the Book of John in the Bible. Find out who Christ is, and how He loves you, yes you!
