While the Lord never leaves His people or forsakes them, He does reserve the right to bring us into periods where our communion with Him feels hindered as we sense that we are shrouded in darkness. Sometimes this is a result of sin, at other times it is to exercise our faith to trust Him.
We read in Isaiah 50:10, “Who is among you that feareth the LORD, that obeyeth the voice of his servant, that walketh in darkness, and hath no light? let him trust in the name of the LORD, and stay upon his God.” There we are told of one who fears God and yet walks in darkness.
Perhaps that’s you today? If so, make sure you are assembling with God’s people in a place where the Bible is preached under the power of the Holy Spirit. In John 20 we see Thomas isolating himself from God’s people, and the Lord Jesus doesn’t address his doubts and fears until he assembled with the other disciples a week after the resurrection.
It’s in the gathering of the saints that the Lord often visits His people again.
