The Knight of Night

Tonight, ladies, I write for myself, for my heart of late has felt deeply its need. It’s grown weary in a season of long endurance. Life, at times, seems to thud along, like horses plodding down a muddy path in the darkness.

 

Don’t you, as a single woman, sometimes secretly wish you could look out the window and see a knight in shining armor riding one of those horses, and know, like the heroines in epic tales, that he’s coming for you?

 

I do.

 

That’s why this Scripture in The Message Bible caught my eye: “Blessed be God, my mountain…my rescuing knight, the high crag where I run for dear life.” (Psalm 144:1-2)

 

Lovely daughters of God, He calls us tonight to lift our eyes to Him, who is our help. If you are feeling a bit downcast, then let me leave you with a few verses that I believe will bring a fresh encounter with His presence. We have only to read them with humble faith that relies completely on Him.

 

Why are you in despair, O my soul? And why have you become disturbed within me? Hope in God, for I shall yet praise Him, the help of my countenance and my God. (Ps 42:11)

 

The Lord is near to all who call upon Him, to all who call upon Him in truth. He will fulfill the desire of those who fear Him; He will also hear their cry and will save them. (Ps 145:18-19).

 

For You light my lamp; the Lord my God illumines my darkness. (Ps 18:28).

 

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through me.” (Jn 14:6)
