Sometimes we are in a storm that we feel will never get better. Sometimes the waves seem too high, the troubles seem too deep, the worries seem too much.
Sometimes there is weeping. And we feel like the weeping will never end. It will never get better. It will never stop. It will never change. But know this. It will. The weeping will not last forever. The troubles will not stay forever. The pain will not stay forever.
Listen to what we are told today in Psalm 30: 4-5:
4 Sing praises to the Lord, O you his faithful ones,
and give thanks to his holy name.
5 For his anger is but for a moment;
his favor is for a lifetime.
Weeping may linger for the night,
but joy comes with the morning.
The darkness will not last forever. When we are in the middle of it, we may think that it will never end. We may think that it will never get better. But it will.
You may be in pain now. You may be in trouble now. You may be in the middle of a storm now. Your tears may not stop now.
We all know that feeling. We’ve all been there. It hurts. And not much makes it feel better in that moment. No matter what you may be going through, you may feel like it will never get better.
It will. Listen to God’s Word this morning. It will. Weeping may linger for the night.
But Joy comes in the morning.
Today, if you are in the night of your tears, hold on. Morning is coming. It is. Morning is coming. And joys comes then.
Hold tight to God. He will not let you go. And His joy will come.
