Joy comes in the morning

202

By Oge Funlola Modie

Seasons of trials create trails of tears. Frustrated at the twists and turns of life, we often give up on God and ourselves. Life seems dark and morose and everyone often wonders at your travails. Be encouraged today, there is a timeline to that situation.

Our text is taken is from Proverbs 30:5b
‘Weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.’

The scripture above tells us God has given timelines to everything. What separates the night from the morning is the Sun rising!  “For the Sun of Righteousness shall arise with healing on His wings”. The intervention of Jesus in the night brings joy in the morning. His presence soothes and repairs the broken, His power sets the captives free, His touch makes the sick well. Jesus Christ is the bright and morning Star- His light chases away the darkness and brings Joy.

The morning is captured by the light of the Sun as its rays gently kiss the skies and gradually reveal the beauty of the earth, this symbolizes how the various forms of Jesus Christ intervene in our dark moments. I will use two examples;

The Form of the Word: When we speak the Word of God to our circumstances, it brings hope, hope translates to Faith and Faith translates to Joy.

The Form of Light: Christ is light, light brings illumination, it brings clarity, it exposes all things, it brightens, it gives understanding

Be encouraged! That trial has a timeline, with the Sun rising comes Joy. The Lord is near to all that call on Him. He has come. The Light has brought deliverance. Be Still, The Lord is right there with you. Alleluia!

Prayer: Dear Father, I thank you for You have turned my mourning into dancing for me; You have taken off my sackcloth and clothed me with joy “Psalm 30:11-12”

Charge for the week: (Psalm 143:8) Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I entrust my life.

Peace and Love
