Exodus 26:31-27:19; Psalm 72:1-20; Acts 15:22-35

And it was night. John 13:30

This darkness was literal. And yet it was symbolic too. The Egyptians knew the fearfulness, distress and pain of passing through this night, as the Lord smote all their firstborn (Ex. 12:42). Likewise, when Judas left the presence of the Lord before Passover to betray Him, it was literally and metaphorically night for him (John 13:1, 30)! For some of us right now perhaps it is “night”, as we find ourselves passing through a bitter experience. However, there is all the difference when we have the Lord with us. —K. C. Ung

There have been times in my life when I felt all alone,
My burden was heavy, night was dark and, oh so long.
But in the deepest despair, I called His name and He was there.
Yes, He always gives a song in the darkest night. —Author Unknown
