Joy is Coming in the Morning

Daily Devotional

Psalms 30:5 For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

Whatever form your night season might take, it will not last forever; joy is coming in the morning. David’s night season, mentioned in Psalms 30, was only temporary, it never lasted forever. He was very sick to the extent that he thought that he was going to die, but God healed him. He said in Psalms 30:2 “O Lord my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me”. In the preceding verse he highlighted the extent to which he was ill when he said “thou hast brought my soul from the grave”. Having experienced God’s deliverance from this near death experience, David then declared in Psalms 30:5 that weeping may endure for night but joy comes in the morning. In the same way that God brought David joy, he will take you to your morning season.

It was God’s favor that turned it around for David. He said “in his favour is life”. God’s favor brought him back from his near death experience. If he did that for David, why would he not do the same for you?  The only assurance that you need that joy is coming is that you are favored by God, evidenced by a continual flow of His favor in your life. His favor can do in a day what man cannot do in a lifetime. Protect or increase the flow of God’s favor in your life through greater diligence in doing what God’s word says.

Expect that your morning season will come; even when you can’t see it, God will do it.

Life Application: Build favor with God, sufficient to take you through the night seasons by continually doing what God says.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for your favor. I thank you for taking me through my night season and for increasing my joy in you. In Jesus’ name, amen.
