Solomon, the wisest man who ever lived, said this: “The Lord has said that he would dwell in a dark cloud.” Many people I know are in dark cloud situations right now. Another translation calls it “thick darkness.”
According to the Bible, God is in there somewhere, though the gloom makes it virtually impossible to see Him. Once in awhile I’ve brushed up against Him in the shadows, or just sensed that He was near.
Though it’s only a minor comfort at the time, it’s definitely good that the Lord at least told us this. So when I find myself in a dark cloud, I have a chance of finding Him as well.
