Genesis 8:22 While the earth remaineth, seedtime and harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and night shall not cease.
For whatever reason, I woke up this morning and the question that came to mind was ‘is there a place on the surface of the earth where it is night all year round?’ To satisfy my curiosity, I consulted the web only to be hit with a resounding NO. Even at the poles where one can expect the most extreme of any conditions, night can only make up one half of the year.
This is very significant because as the Lord spoke to Noah: as long as the earth remains, all seasons, times and conditions will keep changing. Probably at this moment, you have found yourself on the wrong side of the seasons: at night, in the cold and at seedtime with no clear evidence of daylight or harvest time on the horizon.
The variations in times and season are amongst those moments when our resolve is put to the test; to see how much of our hope and faith we can hold on to in the most adverse of circumstances. But beloved, as long as this period is night or seedtime, the only other periods to look out for are day and harvest. We can expect this because that is the what will be.
You can be assured that the situation will neither remain unchanged nor stay the same indefinitely. Regardless of how long and cold your night may have been, you can certainly look forward to daylight and warmth at some point. You only have to keep faith, stay expectant and always look forward to better days and moments. They may be late to arrive but they will come.
Remember # however hard the clouds try, the warmth and light of the sun will always reach its target.
