Joy Comes In The Morning
For his anger is but for a moment and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes with the morning.
God’s anger is short-lived, but his love and favor and mercy lasts forever. Similarly our hard times have an expiration date. Deliverance is right around the corner. Whatever hardships you are currently facing, endure it, embrace it, never give up and keep fighting because your joy is right around the corner.
This verse speaks to God’s character, no matter what happens, his favor on my life lasts forever. Even in his anger he is merciful (See Lamentations 3:23) to bring joy into our lives especially when we don’t deserve it.
Lord thank you for this day, thank you for waking me up and for each breath I take. Much like the Israelites who spent 40 years in the desert because of their disobedience, you still brought them into the promise land. Lord I pray that you will continue to have mercy on me because I know I don’t deserve it, so when I am disobedient your love brings me back to the fold.
I love you
