Yesterday's #prayingthescriptures verse from my Advent devotional Jesus, Light of the World...Praying the Scriptures through Advent was found in Psalm 139:12, and that is what I want to share about today.
"Even the darkness will not be dark to You; the night will shine like the day, for darkness is as light to You." -Psalm 139:12
Little did I know that in just a few moments of finishing my devotional time with this Scripture that I would be praying it over my husband's lost car keys!
Let me share the story with you...
Yesterday afternoon my husband realized he had lost his car keys when he needed them to put 2 bags of clothes in his car to take to the Goodwill. He has one of my Pampered Chef Simple Additions bowls that he keeps his wallet and keys in that is on my kitchen counter. When he went to grab them from where he always keeps them...they were not there!
We turned this house upside down looking for his keys...even digging through the trash.
I finally stopped us and said we need to pray.
I held my husband's hands and prayed about those car keys that were hidden in the darkness to our natural eyes.
It went something like this...
Heavenly Father, we come to You right now and ask that You would bring to light Phil's car keys that are hidden in the darkness to us. We are told in Your Word that even the darkness is not dark to You Father, and You know exactly where those car keys are at this moment because even darkness is as light to You. We pray that You would help us now to find those keys. In the name of Jesus we pray. Amen!
After praying my husband went to his rain jacket that was hanging in our laundry room and found his keys in one of the pockets! We had been searching for 30 minutes at least before I stopped us to pray!
He had been wearing that rain jacket Sunday afternoon when he had gotten home from going to a friend's house who had given us their entertainment center for free. He had unlocked our house door, put the keys in his rain jacket pocket, and went back to our friend's truck to help unload the entertainment center. He had totally forgotten that he had slipped them into the pocket of his rain jacket!
When he pulled out those keys I could not hold back the tears. We held each other and I prayed and cried tears of joy as I thanked God for answering His Word that I had prayed and for caring about something so small as lost car keys.
God is faithful to answer His Word when we pray it back to Him...even for lost car keys!
Walking in His Grace,
