John 18: 12-14 (NKJV) – Then the detachment of troops and the captain and the officers of the Jews arrested Jesus and bound Him. And they led Him away to Annas first, for he was the father-in-law of Caiaphas who was high priest that year. Now it was Caiaphas who advised the Jews that it was expedient that one man should die for the people.
There was no doubt John 18 leads up to what could be said as the darkest day in History. In today’s post I want to highlight a post which my wife wrote in April. May the following offer you insight and encouragement.
Dark Day’s Can Be Blessing
Have you ever been in the midst of something that you wanted to overcome so badly?
Whether its a job situation, a financial strain, a less than ideal living circumstance, or something else less than “ideal”.
You just begin to exist in your life praying that you will overcome your situation sooner rather than later.
Then, the day comes. Something happens, God answers your prayers, the tides change. The end of your trial has been determined and a new journey is beginning. Adios old job, hello better finances. Goodbye gray days, thank God for sunny skies ahead.
Then, days, weeks, months, maybe even years, pass. You realize. Those long ago gray days weren’t actually as awful as they seemed when you were in the midst of them. They were really just tests and trials that you needed to overcome to be the you God wanted you to be.
He was molding you into the person He designed. You begin to thank God for your trial. For the dark days that you thought would never cease. And you realize in the end, your thankful for the dark times. Thankful for how it changed you because even in the dark days, God was leading you…
