When the Clock Strikes Midnight…
When the Clock Strikes Midnight…By
Naturally and figuratively speaking, midnight is representative of the dark hour. For many, it’s the hour when all hope is lost. For some, it’s the sleepless hour. The hour of restlessness and despair.
If you’ve faced a “midnight hour” you know that the trouble doesn’t end simply because the sunrises. Well, here’s hope for the hopeless. God can turn your darkest hour into your finest hour.
Great things happen in the midnight hour. Miracles happen in the midnight hour. Don’t lose hope. If you’ll stay in faith, a suddenly moment will happen in due time.
Paul and Silas experienced a suddenly moment at midnight when they were locked up in prison for preaching the Gospel of Christ. Acts 16:25 tells of how they were singing hymns and praying to God. And suddenly, a massive earthquake shook the foundations of the prison. Their bands were loosed, the doors immediately flew open.
Notice Paul and Silas were not in despair. I’m sure they had every reason to be downcast. They had every reason to be without hope- to complain, to get bitter and live in defeat. No, they were singing and praying… in the midnight hour not knowing their fate.
Friends, when your clock strikes midnight- when you can’t see the light at the end of your tunnel, instead of complaining get your hopes up. This is the moment to let your praise raise. Like Paul and Silas, pray to the Father.
Be encouraged today. God responds to a grateful heart. When the clock of life strikes midnight, don’t get sad… don’t get mad, get glad! Stay in faith, let your praise raise! When you do so, the Lord will bring a suddenly moment full of miracles your way as you charge forth on your journey of life!
