Do you have sleepless nights, tossing on the hot pillow, waiting for the first glint of dawn? Ask the Holy Spirit to enable you to fix your thoughts on God your Maker, and believe that He can fill those lonely, dreary hours with song.

But no one says, 'Where is God my Maker, who gives songs in the night?' Job 35:10

In the night of bereavement I know that God draws near, and assured me that He has called the eager, earnest spirit to stand in the bright throng of the invisible, liberated, radiant, active, and has given her new song, and me, a song in the night.

Is yours the night of discouragement or imagined or actual failure? No one understands you, your friends criticize; but your Maker draws near, and gives you a song—a song of hope, the song which is harmonious with the strong, deep music of His divine intervention. Be ready to sing the songs that your Maker gives.

The strength of the vessel can be demonstrated only by the hurricane, and the power of the Gospel can be fully shown only when the Christian is subjected to some fiery trial. If God would make known the fact that He gives songs in the night, He must first make it night. Remember, joy comes in the morning!! Listen for it.
