The Stage is Being Set – A Word by Bill Yount
I faced my terror by night, it was afraid of me. And the arrow that flies by day, it missed me. You may wonder what my terror and arrow was. Just terror and an arrow, that’s all it was (see Psalm 91:5).
Jesus’ birth takes place at night (Silent Night, Holy Night). Then came a dark night in history filled with terror when King Herod ordered every two year old boy and under to be killed (see Matthew 2). Satan dreads Heaven coming to earth. But the Father whispers, “Can’t touch Him!” As Believers satan targets us also. If it’s the darkest time in your life be encouraged, Jesus is about to show up. I find Him in my darkest moments. That’s when I get to know Him and the power of His resurrection and the fellowship of His sufferings. “Fear not, He will come and save you.” Isaiah 35:14 (KJV)
In a recent movie the lead actor battled untold suffering and terror. The
end was a bloody finish. Her youthful, battered body laid lifeless, turning the theatre into a morgue. After what seemed an eternity, her eyes popped open and she lived. I found out later that this movie character was favored to live through her ordeals so she could star in the next movie series. Looking back over my life, I can relate to this. Yes, I have survived everything so far and am an overcomer. God has favored me to live through my hardest times. You too. He has another series of our life to be lived. “Our times are in His hands” (Psalm 31:15).

When it looks like it’s impossible for me to win, God is setting the stage for something greater. For many the stage is just being set. The curtains have not yet been cracked open. God is still moving behind the scenes to place us front and center. That’s why we haven’t been heard from yet.
Isn’t it the stories in the Bible of the people who looked like they would never make it, that builds our faith the most? The Lord writes their heroic exploits beginning with them knowing the agony of defeat, silent nights of terror, with trouble becoming their friend. No hope of ever fulfilling their purpose. Be encouraged, God is not through writing your story.
