Season of Night

There is a Season of Night where God will call you to blindly walk in faith, where the “feelings of faith” will be seemingly missing. You will beg God for the feelings, for more faith, for some kind of fruit. This is a time of great testing. Your faith will be tested to the max. In this place you may wonder if God is even real or at the least, if He is good. It will take all you have inside to keep believing. You will have to demand of yourself to simply just obey, to simply just believe. Many nights you will cry out in your bed, while searching your heart for anything that may be in His way, anything that might be causing this. But, God will be the one “causing” it and He will not relent. He desires to bring you to a new and wonderful place, only this painful trial can. All the time you may feel God has abandoned you. He has not. He is right there crying with you, holding you and keeping you from utter despair. He is there sustaining you. You just don’t recognize His presence. This is the most important time of your existence. What God will do in this time will set the stage for your biggest breakthrough and launch you into your greatest calling. You will be so glad that you said “yes” to this Season of Night.
