Senior Pastor’s Devotional
Day 96 Movement Control Order – “Strategic Psalm 91 Watch”

“The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms.”
Deut. 33:27

Have you gone through times of uncertainty, darkness, loss, troubles and at times feel so depressed?

Times like these have been called “the dark night of the soul.” Most of us go through such periods. Sometimes it’s just life’s circumstances that get us down such as having an accident, getting sick, experiencing the loss of a loved one or a job, or because of an unresolved relational conflict. And sometimes we have no idea why we feel so down.

Whatever the reason, the difficulties we are experiencing may be God’s way of redirecting us to put something right in our life, to help us to understand spiritual truths, or to motivate us to get into a recovery or counselling program to overcome a depression that has lasted too long or to help us overcome an addiction—or even to mould our life for the better.

If you are going through “a dark night of the soul” be assured that God wants to use this time to help you grow and become a better and wiser person or to change some direction in your life. Normally, we don’t made a major change in our life or work without it having been preceded by a “dark night of the soul”. I mean, who wants to change anything when everything is going great? Not me! The “dark night” times leave me open to change and to God’s direction.

However, no matter what we are going through, if our lives are committed to God, of one thing we can be certain, “The eternal God is our refuge and underneath are the everlasting arms.”
