Within this past week, I know of 3 people who have died. The news of their passing has made me a little sad.
My sadness made me think of the millions of others who are experiencing the same feeling. So, just in case you are having difficulties in life through sickness or the loss of a loved one, I thought to encourage you.
Remember that God has not forgotten us. He will sustain us when no one else can mentally uphold us during this season of life.
You will find in Isaiah 45:3 (KJV) these words, “And I will give thee the treasures of darkness, and hidden riches of secret places, that thou mayest know that I, the LORD, which call thee by thy name, am the God of Israel.” The treasure is some benefit that you gain only because you are living through this experience.)
And while these words were specifically to the Israelites, as a child of God whom He loves, adopts these words as your particular promise from the Father.
In one the darkest seasons of my life, I found such solace in knowing that there was a ‘treasure’ in my dark time. All I needed to do was to be discerning enough to see it. ( Looking for the treasure distracted me from the chaos of the situation and gave me hope of God ‘s love and faithful care of me as a person.)
In short, look for your treasure! The times may be dark, yet finding that treasure will certainly lead you to the Light!
