The desire of the soul in spiritual darkness



The desire of the soul in spiritual darkness

“With my soul have I desired thee in the night.” 
Isaiah 26:9

Suggested Further Reading: 
Psalm 42

There are times when all the saints can do is to desire.
 We have a vast number of evidences of piety: some are practical, some are experimental, some are doctrinal; and the more evidences a man has of his piety the better, of course.

 We like a number of signatures, to make a deed more valid, if possible. 
We like to invest property in a great number of trustees, in order that it may be all the safer; and so we love to have many evidences. 

Many witnesses will carry our case in the courts better than a few: and so it is well to have many witnesses to testify to our piety. But there are seasons when a Christian cannot get any. 

He can get scarcely one witness to come and attest his godliness. 
He asks for good works to come and speak for him. 
But there will be such a cloud of darkness about him, and his good works will appear so black that he will not dare to think of their evidences. 

He will say, “True, I hope this is the right fruit; I hope I have served God; but I dare not plead these works as evidences.” 
He will have lost assurance, and with it his enjoyment of communion with God. 

“I have had that fellowship with him,” perhaps he will say, and he will summon that communion to come and be in evidence. 
But he has forgotten it, and it does not come, and Satan whispers it is a fancy, and the poor evidence of communion has its mouth gagged, so that it cannot speak. 

But there is one witness that very seldom is gagged, and one that I trust the people of God can always apply, even in the night: and that is, “I have desired thee—I have desired thee in the night.”

For meditation: 

The light shines best in the darkness (John 1:5); the people of God have proved it when all else has failed them 
(Psalm 73:21-26; Jonah 2:1-7).

 If you are not a believer in Jesus Christ
you can be accepted into his kingdom.
 I invite you to let him to make of you, 

what He always wanted.

"PRAYER" 

Marvelous God Almighty, 
I come to you in the precious name of Jesus,
 who died for me to make me free of sin,
 I want Jesus to enter in to my heart and make me free,
 I confess that He is the son of God. 
I ask to change my heart and to give me wisdom to understand your Holy Word 
full of promises of eternal value, 
not only to live on this earth, but to be expectant of my life in heaven.
 In the precious name of Jesus I ask.
 Amen..

“The true minister of Christ 
knows that the true value of a sermon must lie, 
not in its fashion and manner, 
but in the truth which it contains.
