“Weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning. (Psalm 30:5b, NIV).
Whatever my sorrow or my pain, it does not last forever. Whatever my despair or heartbreak, one day it will be over. The promise of His peace is real. The sadness I feel in the darkness anticipates His promise of peace to come. His strongest children are those who, in the night of weeping, confidently believe in the promise of joy in the morning.
I choose to walk in victory and not defeat. I choose to live with purpose and without hesitation. I believe Him above whatever else I may hear, and I trust in His promise whatever my eyes may see. Fixing my eyes unwaveringly upon Him and keeping my ears attuned to His voice, I trust His will for my life. I rejoice in His bountiful mercy and grace. I know He has overcome whatever I face.
He not only reigns in the morning, but He has been with me all through the night. Whether the weeping of the night or the rejoicing of the morning, I am never forsaken. If I abide in Him and remain in a lasting relationship with Him, He promises to abide and remain in a lasting relationship with me. Our relationship brings life. I only live because He lives. I know, without hesitation or doubt, that morning always comes.
