“Your sun will never set again, and your moon will wane no more; the Lord will be your everlasting light, and your days of sorrow will end.” –Isaiah 60:20
This is a great verse to memorize for dark times. All may be well for you right now; I hope it is! Even so, this world tends to bring us trouble. I don’t say that to be negative. Just to plan ahead. Just in case. Of what we hope will never come to pass. If we commit Isaiah 60:20 to memory now, God’s Spirit will be able to help us recall it if then ever comes to be.
And if somehow it doesn’t, this verse will remind us to be thankful for that.
If you are going through a dark time now, I pray the words of this poetic promise will comfort you. This. Too. Shall. Pass. Keep hoping and trusting in Jesus. Your days of sorrow will eventually end.
Father, You know the needs of every person reading this today. Please comfort and encourage those who are going through dark times now. Fill their hearts with hope. Let them know You are with them now. And please help the rest of us to remember the words of Isaiah 60:20. Jesus said, “In this world you will have trouble.” He also promised He has overcome the world. Someday His everlasting Light will chase all darkness and shadow away. We can count on this. Amen.
