I felt quite tired after a tedious day and went to bed earlier than usual, almost immediately after dinner. My wife urged me to stay a bit longer so we could watch the 10.00pm news together as we normally do. I could not help it; I must have ‘passed out’ before half past nine.
I woke up around 3.30am and feeling refreshed, I decided to study the bible and perhaps say some prayers. I left the bedroom gently shutting the door in order not to arouse the ‘sleeping beauty’, and I entered the living room for the prayer and study session. Having been so engrossed in the study, hardly did I realize that I could be lost in my own house just as one could be lost in concentration.
There was a sudden blackout which I did not prepare for and there was such a pitch darkness that would make a child cry. I muttered some words of prayer and started back towards the bedroom to get the battery powered lamp or torch. After a few steps, I suddenly lost orientation, stumbled on the first chair, and knocked my knee on another stool. I gave a startled smile and started groping with my hands in darkness until my minds eye located where I was. Eureka!
Then I realized that darkness and Light may be extreme contrasts, they are the same to El-Shaddai and I bowed down in the dark and worshipped. Even in pitch darkness, He is with us. Emmanuel!
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
