Joy Comes In The Morning

  • For his anger is but for a moment; His favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may stay for the night, But joy comes in the morning. Psalms 30:5 WEB

    Another night without sleep I thought as I tossed and turned on the bed. The pressure of what was going on in our life was tormenting, and even though we were exhausted, we could not sleep because we knew what we had to face the next day. It was all for nothing, because when the morning arrived, God had taken care of the problem and our worry had been a total waste of time.

    Looking back over my life, there were many times when things looked really bad, but when the next day came, things were better. All the worry was for nothing, and if the situation had not changed, worry still had not helped.

    The sentence 'weeping may stay for the night' suggests an overnight visitor. It could translated as, 'At evening, weeping may arrive for the night, but Joy is coming to stay in that room in the morning, so he has to be gone by then.'

    Paul wrote 'For our light affliction, which is for the moment, works for us more and more exceedingly an eternal weight of glory; while we don't look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are temporal, but the things which are not seen are eternal' (2 Corinthians 4:17'18).

    Wait patiently on God. He knows what is going on in your life. Pray, spend a little time with Him each day, just the two of you. Share your heart with Him. Don't worry about tomorrow. It will change your life for the better and you will be amazed at the mini-miracles that will begin to happen. God is good, through and through.

    Prayer: Heavenly Father, I look to You today. Please turn my weeping into joy. Walk with me, talk with me, help me to know You better. Teach me what I need to know to move forward, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray.

Amen. Thanks Pastor, I needed this message, I have been in anguish waiting for my school to return $7900 to me for quite some time now. I know that I have to turn it over to Yah and let Him handle it, for I can't. Abba, please grant me peace in this trial, Amen.

Most things I worry about never happen, even when bad things happen I know God uses it, and never waste anything. I also know who holds my hand and goes through it with me. Psalm 37: 32-34!
