A family hunkered down as the brunt of the storm hit, and dakness filled the entire Island. Suddenly there was water in the living room as a chill swept in and to everyone's dismay! The board that protected one of the front windows had fallen off. Now the strong forceful winds threatened to lift the roof off the house. The moment of truth came and the husband knew that he and his sons had to go outside in what seemed like the darkest hour, because his whole family was now in grave danger.
Someone just tragically lost a loved one and is facing the darkest hour, with no words that could possibly bring comfort. The Doctor may have just given the grim news, which may seem like a death sentence. The husband who does not love his wife anymore and the entire family structure seem to be crumbling, it may feel like the darkest hour.
In your walk with God you have been faithful yet you are going through your darkest hour. Instead of things getting better it seems as if they are getting worse. You have prayed and you have fasted yet God your Father seems very far away. At this very moment you may feel all alone and that no one even cares. Just as you are about to walk away... then comes the Sweet Holy Spirit reminding you of Jesus Christ as He faced the darkest hour of His life. He too felt all alone and cried out to His Father saying "O my Father, if it be possible, let this cup pass from me: nevertheless not as I will, but as thou will." Matthew 26:39 Thank God Jesus said "nevertheless"!
