When you experience a blackout, it usually is not a very pleasant event. That is because blackouts prevent you from seeing reality. They leave you in a state of panic, gasping for the next view of reality.
I experienced an electricity blackout a few weeks ago, and wanted to cry myself to sleep, because I had absolutely no way of seeing or doing anything. I remembered the days when I did not yet have the indwelling Holy Spirit, and realized that the current blackout was nothing by comparison.
I thank God for the day that he put his indwelling Holy Spirit into my heart. I thank him for giving me hope.
