The Darkest Places

by ggerhauser

Morning Thought: This morning I didn’t want to read Numbers 16. It’s all about Korah’s rebellion and I’ve had to deal with enough difficult people over the years. But I read it anyway and found I was blessed. Even in the darkest places of Scripture, God can shed his light. I’m thankful that God backs up his chosen. I’m also grateful for Jesus, who like Aaron, stood between the living and the dead, and stopped the plague of sin for all who believe. “So Aaron did as Moses said, and ran into the midst of the assembly. The plague had already started among the people, but Aaron offered the incense and made atonement for them. He stood between the living and the dead, and the plague stopped.” (Num. 16:47, 48 NIV)
