“He made darkness his secret place; his pavilion round about him were dark waters and thick clouds of the skies.” (Psalm 18:11)
Why is it that God, who covers Himself “with light as with a garment” (Psalm 104:2) would ever make “darkness his secret place” and “his pavilion round about him” be “dark waters and thick clouds of skies”? Is God like yin and yang, displaying attributes of both light and darkness? Not according to John who said, “God is light, and in him is no darkness at all” (1 John 1:5)
So what is the purpose of this darkness?
