Into the Night

My pastor, Jay Hogewood, often closes Wednesday night study sessions with a prayer that includes these words: “Send us into the night.” I love hearing him say that.

Very often we find ourselves in dark, scary, confusing, and uncertain situations. They aren’t comfortable and we’d rather stay in cozy, well-lit surroundings.

But when God sends us into the night, it’s for a purpose. It’s with assurance that we are never alone, never without resources. It’s with confidence that there is treasure to be found in darkness (Isaiah 45:3). And it’s with the knowledge that we are on our way home.
