Do Dark Shadows Frighten You? – Love Worth Finding – October 18

Do Dark Shadows Frighten You?

OCTOBER 18

The Lord is near to all them who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth. Psalm 145:18

Psalm 23 speaks of the “valley of the shadow of death.” For every shadow, there must be light. Jesus Christ said, “I am the light of the world” (John 8:12). A shadow may frighten you, but a shadow cannot really hurt you.

I dare say that a shadow at one time or another has spooked most of us. But thank God, death is but a shadow—if you know the Lord Jesus Christ. If you keep your face toward the light, the shadow will fall behind you. You won’t even see the shadow. God doesn’t bring us to a valley to leave us there. He always brings us through.

God is never closer than when we’re in a dark valley. That’s when He is especially near. In the original language, we’re told Hebrews 13:5 actually has five negatives! A literal translation of it would be: “I will never, no, not ever, never leave you nor forsake you.” Memorize this short, treasured verse today.
