"But no one says, 'Where is God my Maker, Who gives songs in the night,'" Job 35:10
I found this thought so interesting -- God gives us songs in the night. But I didn't understand it much. Spurgeon and Luther helped me. Night can mean two things (maybe more): actual night and the night of the soul (the time when you are distressed, worried, anxious, scared....).
Happy Easter! Sing loud today. Sing for all to hear. I have some quotes from a sermon Spurgeon gave in Feb. of 1898 and one from Martin Luther Spurgeon quotes in this sermon. Enjoy!
"Night hath its songs. We need not much poetry in our spirit, to catch the song of the night, and hear the spheres as they chant prayers which are loud to the heart, though they be silent to the ear -- the praises of the mighty God, who bears up the unpillared arch of heaven, and moves the stars in their courses . . .
"Man, too . . . must have his night . . . nights of sorrow, nights of persecution, nights of doubt, nights of bewilderment, nights of anxiety . . . nights of all kinds, which press upon our spirits and terrify our souls . . . God giveth them songs in the night . . . Anyy man can sing in the day.
"in the night of a Christian experience God is his only song . . . One word of God is like a piece of gold, and the Christian is the gold-beater, and he can hammer that promise out for whole weeks." Charles Spurgeon
"The devil cannot bear singing." Martin Luther
