Job 35:10 – But no one says, ‘Where is God my Maker, who gives songs in the night,
Psalm 119:55 – In the night I remember your name, O LORD, and I will keep your law.
Are you one of the fortunate ones that God has called to work the night shift? Has God gifted you to make a joyful noise in the night? When it’s dark and you can’t see your way, do you remember His Name? God always has a song to give; but, can you sing it at night? Proclaiming His love in the morning is an easy thing. It’s always easy in the morning. But, are you qualified enough to talk about His faithfulness at night? Is the song of the Lord with you at night?
In your night, is darkness. In your night, you feel alone. In your night, you can’t see what’s up ahead. But, you’ve been called to sing and praise God in your night. Can you do it? You thought you were just having a troubled life, that you’ve just reached a bad patch. But, the truth is, you’re on assignment. God wants you to make a difference in someone’s life. Someone is watching your life and they will be encouraged by the way you lift Him up, while in your night. You’ve been called to do this night thing. God expects you to praise Him, lift Him, glorify and magnify Him in your night. This may be hard for some, but God knows you can do it. He even expects you to tell someone about His faithfulness and how He will never leave you or forsake you. It’s a hard job, but somebody’s got to do it. And, it seems that God has chosen you.
Your night has purpose and destiny. Don’t worry about it. God would not call you to a work and then not prepare you for it. (I Thessalonians 5:24. The one who calls you is faithful and he will do it. NIV) God knows all about you and He knows you are just the one for this job. So, if you’ve been called to work the night shift, you’ve been called to represent Him during your night season. While it may not feel like it, it’s a privilege to be called to work at night. God makes this night shift work worth your while. So, if you’re one of the ones, just do what you do. Rejoice and lift Jesus while you’re working the night shift. You will be better for it!
