Dark Night of the Soul – Part 1
When God is Silent:
During the Dark Night of the Soul and is Learning How to Trust in God, What is the Will of God, and Knowing the Will of God….
Have you ever felt like the Lord is silent and has abandoned you or feeling lost and can’t find your direction? Are a lot of things going wrong in your life? Do you feel like you are being crushed and pressed hard and loss your sense of peace and joy which relapse into a lower spiritual and mental level? That’s because you are in the Dark Night of the Soul or another way said is the Cloud of the Unknowing. (Acts 17:26-28). Why does this happen?
The Will of God
You probably think you are following God’s plan. In fact a person is running to fast thinking they are accomplishing God’s plan that is opposite of Gods; or their way or vision for the kingdom is better. The Lord has to break the independent spirit in which we hit the end of our leach or take them another direction. WHY? So you won’t become dependent on the flesh and starts the purification of the will so that it may be merged with God’s will.
Every Christian has a God Leash (another way of saying God is in control of our lives). When a person hits the end of the leash, he goes into the Dark Night of the Soul. WHY? He must loose direction in order to come out going a better or clearer direction toward God’s plan. If that person doesn’t loose his direction, he will continually go his own plan thinking He’s going the right direction.
Hear From God
Unfortunately, we are more soulish than spirit. God takes you into darkness to redirect you. About the time you loose your bearings and get reoriented is when you get to pop out again. You don’t pop out instantly going God’s way at first. Each one of us need to be trained to recognize God’s way and so we end up going through seasons of darkness in our life.
When you are first saved, your personal plan is real thick, and that’s the leash of God. Whenever we first exit from the Dark Night of the Soul, you usually go running headlong. You have a long leash that jerks at the end of it. The more you start getting into God’s plan and your leash will get shorter. You will hate the short leash but in reality its God telling you that you’re doing good.
Learning How to Trust in God
Moses had a real short leash and he smote the rock that caused him to not enter into the promise land. You will go into seasons of a real short leash and you think “why are you doing this to me” and He says “I’m doing this to you because you’re really doing good. I want you to keep doing good.” You take one step out and now you are in the Dark Night of the Soul. The shorter the leash the quicker you exit. You realize what He’s trying to do in you. The closer you get to God’s plan the shorter your leash. He wants you to surrender your personal plan.
