It seems we are in a season when weeping lasts. But hear the good news: joy comes in the morning!
“For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime! Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.” (Psalm 30:5 NLT)
Friend, are you longing for a turnaround?
We all struggle with discouragement, disillusionment, and weariness this season. Life as we knew it has completely changed with a global pandemic, uncertainty, division, and chaos. Each of us has received a share of new challenges and problems.
Do you often cry out to God as I do, asking Him, “How long, oh Lord, how long?”
I am honored to share this encouragement with all of you who are weary and discouraged at TitusTwo today.
Remember to pin me for later!
The Joy That Comes in the Morning
What is this joy that comes after the weeping? This is the joy of the turnaround, the joy of God’s victory in our lives, of His purposes prevailing. The joy that comes to us is the joy of fulfillment of His promises, of experiencing His provision.
This is the joy of prayers heard and answered in ways unimaginable, of seeing God doing things and moving things in a way only He can do, exceeding our expectations.
Preparation for the Joy That Comes
There are three major ways we can prepare ourselves and cultivate joy.
The first is our continuous commitment to trust the Lord and wait upon Him. Sometimes, it is extremely challenging to continue trusting God, especially when we don’t see any improvement in our situations.
But one way or another God always saves us from our troubles – either by providing a solution or providing the strength to endure with joy and remain hopeful under pressure.
Read the rest of the post at TitusTwo and learn which are the other two ways to set up ourselves for the coming joy.
