Joy Comes in the Morning

February 12, 2019

Scripture Promise: Psalm 30:5

For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for a lifetime; Weeping may last for the night, But a shout of joy comes in the morning.

If you have ever gotten up early to watch the sunrise, it’s something exhilarating and exciting. Sunrise in the mountains is even better. As the sun’s rays peek over the mountain top, it’s a striking reminder that a new day has come.

We’ve all had those nights where we tossed and turned hoping for the morning. We’ve also had those seasons of sorry, pain or uncertainty when we thought the dark night of our soul would never end. In the middle of our difficulty, it’s easy to get so focused on the problem that we feel things will never change.

Weeping lasts for the night, but not forever. It is just for a season, not a lifetime. We all face problems, but they don’t last.

It may be hard to believe now, but joy will come. The pain will fade, the heartbreak will heal, and the sunshine of a new day will soon be here.

Now I am not downplaying the pain you may be going through today; I know sometimes life is just hard. But the morning is coming, and a new day is about to begin.

The sun will rise and a new season will emerge.

The only thing that lasts forever is God’s favor. Think about that for a moment. As a child of God, you have the favor of God, and that favor will last your entire life. That favor will last for an eternity. His favor rests on you even in your darkest night. It is His favor that brings the new day and joy in the morning.

Let’s Look at the promise one more time.

For His anger is but for a moment, His favor is for a lifetime; Weeping may last for the night, But a shout of joy comes in the morning. – Psalms 30:5

Confess this with me.

Sorrow last for a night,
But joy comes in the morning
My dark night will pass
Morning is just about to dawn
God is bringing a new day of joy and favor.
Today I rest in the favor God
By faith, I shout for joy at the new morning God is bringing.
In Jesus Name,
Amen

    I lost a job last year in November. I am trusting God for another one and a better, the period of waiting, no cash flow with children, loans to clear and a nanny to pay seems like the longest night ever. I went for an interview in a christian organization, I need God’s favor. I covet your prayers.

      I am glad the program is a blessing and sorry to hear you are going through struggles. You can post a prayer request on our other website http://www.nationalprayerroom.com
      I really like “Pray Big” by Will Davis and “Sun Stand Sill” by Stephen Furtick.

      Both will help build your faith.

      Give everything to God. Surrender it all to Him. He will wipe away the tears & remove the pain. The fights are for Him. God bless you.
