18:11 He made darkness his covering, his canopy around him – the dark rain clouds of the sky.

b) God Turns My Darkness Into Light
18:28 You, O Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light.

c) The Darkness Is The Psalmist’s Closest Friend
88:16-18 Your wrath has swept over me; your terrors have destroyed me. v17All day long they surround me like a flood; they have completely engulfed me. v18You have taken my companions and loved ones from me; the darkness is my closest friend.

d) Clouds And Thick Darkness Surround God
97:1-2 The Lord reigns, let the earth rejoice. v2Clouds and thick darkness surround him; righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.

e) God Brings Darkness
104:19-21 The moon marks off the seasons, and the sun knows when to go down. v20You bring darkness, it becomes night, and all the beasts of the forest prowl. v21The lions roar for their prey and seek their food from God.

f) God Sent Darkness
105:28 He sent darkness and made the land dark – for had they not rebelled against his words?

g) God Brought Them Out of Darkness
107:14 He brought them out of darkness and the deepest gloom and broke away their chains.

h) Darkness Is As Light
139:11-12 If I say, “Surely the darkness will hide me and the light become night around me,” v12even the darkness will not be dark to you; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to you.

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
18:28 You, O Lord, keep my lamp burning; my God turns my darkness into light.
