Daily Devotions with Spurgeon: 13th December

Evening Brightens into Day

It shall come to pass, that at evening time it shall be light. (Zechariah 14:7)

It is a surprise that it should be so; but God is wont to work in a way so that the dark will not deepen into midnight, but it will suddenly brighten into day. Never let us despair. In the worst times let us trust in the Lord who turns the darkness of the shadow of death into the morning.

This promise should assist our patience. The light may not fully come till our hopes are quite spent by waiting all day to no purpose. But to the righteous, the sun rises when it is almost night. May we not with patience wait for that heavenly light, which may be long in coming but is sure to prove itself well worth waiting for?

Come, my soul, sing unto Him who will bless you in life and in death, in a manner surpassing all that nature has ever seen when at its best.
