Daily Devotional – 5/23/17 “Exposed to darkness!”

Did you know, exposing unprocessed film to light can ruin it? Did you also know that in order to get the things that are on the inside of film, it has to first be subjected to darkness? Maybe you did but I am sharing this because somebody is in the midst of darkness and your cry to God is, “Why are you forsaking me.” When in actuality, you are unprocessed and if the light appears before your time is up, it’ll ruin you. This is why God is allowing you to sit in the darkness because He needs what’s on the inside of you to fully develop. It’s quiet and your thoughts are getting the best of you but stay in your darkness. It’s hard to understand why and how the darkness appeared so suddenly but stay in your darkness. Yes, it hurts and you wish for it to be over but stay in your darkness. God has some stuff that needs to develop. There are some stories that can only be told, after the darkness. Some souls you will reach, after the darkness. Some healings you will be able to speak, after the darkness. Some strongholds you will be able to destroy, after the darkness. And some blessings that will only manifest but after the darkness.

Yes, you’ve been in church all your life, you have many degrees under your belt, you’ve been a member of the church since you were five and able to speak in tongues. Yes, I get that you can rebuke and pray open Heaven’s gates but now is your time to be reprocessed by way of the darkness. Because after you’ve been exposed that which is on the inside of you will come forth. Those plans and visions that keep waking you up, will be plainly developed for you to see. That nagging that won’t leave you alone, will manifest. The reason hell showed up in your home, will be developed. But you have to first be placed in darkness. Your cry, today, is like that of David’s in Psalm 13:1-4, “O LORD, how long will you forget me? Forever? How long will you look the other way? How long must I struggle with anguish in my soul, with sorrow in my heart every day? How long will my enemy have the upper hand? Turn and answer me, O LORD my God! Restore the sparkle to my eyes, or I will die. Don’t let my enemies gloat, saying, “We have defeated him!” Don’t let them rejoice at my downfall.” But don’t stop there because even David says in the latter part of Psalm 13 in verses 5-6, “But I trust in your unfailing love. I will rejoice because you have rescued me. I will sing to the LORD because he is good to me.” You may not understand it but trust in knowing that it’s God who is processing your film. [FILM = Favor in low moments!]
