Out of the darkness

July 31, 2010 shamslayer

This mornings devotional was about how God has brought us (if we are a believer) out of the darkness and caused us to walk in His Light, later I was looking at one of my poetry books and this poem jumped out at me:

LIGHT SHINING OUT OF DARKNESS ~ William Cowper

God moves in a mysterious way,

His wonders to perform;

He plants His footsteps in the sea,

And rides upon the storm.

Deep in unfathomable mines

Of never failing skill,

He treasures up His bright designs,

And works His sovereign will.

Ye fearful saints fresh courage take;

The clouds ye so much dread

Are big with mercy, and shall break

In blessings on your head.

Judge not the Lord by feeble sense,

But trust Him for His grace;

Behind a frowning providence,

He hides a smiling face.

His purposes will ripen fast,

Unfolding every hour:

The bud may have a bitter taste,

But sweet will be the flower.

Blind unbelief is sure to err,

And scan His work in vain;

God is His own interpreter,

And He will make it plain.
