“Though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.” Psalm 23:4

To rejoice in the light of God’s countenance is certainly most pleasant — but not always so profitable to everyone, as sometimes to walk in the dark, nay, in the valley of the shadow of death. Some are more humble and cautious while walking in the dark than in the light; and glimpses of grace are then exceedingly precious; yet such should consider, for their humiliation, that darkness is commonly the effect of a wrong spirit and careless walk. O Lord, grant that when I am deprived of sensible comforts, I may yet be enabled to rely upon Your bare word, and in death may be refreshed by the light of Your countenance. Amen. You have declared that “the righteous has a refuge in his death” (Proverbs 14:32). The shadow of death is often cast over some of the Lord’s people, and they dread the thought of dying; but such have generally found that the fear of death was worse than the reality, and that they have felt a thousand deaths in fearing one. Believer, Jesus will be with you when dying, and His grace will be sufficient for you. Live for Jesus and walk closely with Jesus now, and leave death and all the future until it comes. Dying grace is for dying moments.
