Verse of the day
…weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.
It is said that we all are either coming out of crisis, heading into crisis or living through one. Everyone gets to experience this at some point in life.
It is no surprise that nights and mornings will remain for as long as we breathe. God fashioned them into His creation. A new day starts when night becomes morning. Also, morning ends with an evening. Jesus told His disciples while He was on earth, and also tells us that we would have tribulations in this world, but must be of good cheer for He has overcome the world. He, with this, emphasized the inevitability of nights whilst assuring us of our victory in Him despite these circumstances.
Our response to these night periods defines whether we’d find strength and light to last us into the morning. Will we light the candles of His word and promises during these nights or let darkness overwhelm us?
Knowing the need for these times, wouldn’t it be best to build strength for them while it’s day rather than praying against their coming? We can’t avoid nights but can go through them with our heads held up high in sweet fellowship with the Father even while we feel the strains of night while we wait for morning’s joy.
References: John 16:33
Father, my sufficiency in the good and bad times is of you. I put my assurance in your word to see me through the night that I may experience full joy in the morning.
