Where Is God When It Hurts?

If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” even the darkness will not be dark to you . . . for darkness is as light to you.

–Psalm 139:11-12


People often ask, where is God during the darkest moments of our lives? Where is God when someone who loves the Lord reaches a point where it seems impossible to go on living? David gives an answer to that question. God is where we are, even in our darkest moments. If we have ever reached a point where we can’t find a trace of God, he is still there. And when we grope around in total darkness, even that darkness is not dark to God. God never leaves us even in our deepest hurts or in the darkest moments of our lives.

A Dutch minister tells about a Christmas “celebration” in a Japanese concentration camp during World War II. Standing behind the barracks and shivering in the cold, the group of prisoners he was with felt the presence of the Lord more than at any time before.

The Lord Jesus came into our darkness to assure us that he will never leave us or forsake us. And sometimes we can see God more clearly when we hurt the most.
