My enemies, don’t be glad because of my troubles! I may have fallen, but I will get up; I may be sitting in the dark, but the Lord is my light. Micah 7:8
Have you ever felt that way? You might have had enemies or just troubles. For a moment you might have fallen. Perhaps your enemies were more like regular complaints that caused you to feel like your falling.
Maybe you were in the dark, but all of sudden there was the light. The Lord was there to remind you that He was the light of the world, and you would not be overtaken by any of it!
Something like verse 7 might have sprung to your mind, that says, “But I trust the Lord God to save me, and I will wait for Him to answer my prayer.”
The waiting may feel longer sometimes than others, but rest assured, dear friend, that even if you’re going through that now, that He has heard you.
Michael told Daniel, “Daniel, don’t be afraid! God has listened to your prayers since the First days you humbly asked for understanding, and he has sent me here.”
The light of the world hears your humble cries. He will not let you stumble. God Most High will still be your Refuge in times of need. And He is still the lifter of your head.
Call upon Him and keep trusting,
