S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
Weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.
Through the course of some days in one’s life, troubles mount to the point that weeping overwhelms a tired soul at the end of the day. Yet King David says here, if you will just “Wait For It …” you will be rejoicing by daybreak!
I know you know that things never seem as bad in the morning as they do at night when you’re trying to fall asleep, but the stress of what you’re experiencing says, “It’s over!” Then there’s the person who is broken-hearted who waits for the dark to weep their sorrows into a pillow in order to bury their heartache. If either of these two experiences have been yours recently, Jesus is reminding you and me to “Wait For It …” because joy is on its way in the morning. My wife has always said that life is a series of ebbs and flows, and when we’re young, if we’re not careful, we want to throw in the towel during the “ebbs” and say, “I Quit!” But there’s no quitting for the child of God! We must be content to “Wait For It …” because we trust that the ebb will end and soon the flow will flow again. Here’s what David said on another occasion, “I am worn out from my groaning. All night long I flood my bed with weeping and drench my couch with tears” (Ps. 6:6). So David knew what he was speaking of; that’s why I’ll go with the Word Of God. When trouble comes from this point on, I will just “Wait For It …”
I knew it, I just knew it. When I woke up this AM the joy was back! I’m glad I could “Wait For It …” Amen
