For his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning.Psalm 30:5(ESV)
As we travel through life we experience many occasions of difficulty and pain, often a product of our sinful actions, careless attitude or foolish indifference towards God or others. But the chastening rod of our Father in heaven is short-lived.. and the momentary affliction we receive from His Fatherly hand is for our beneficial training, and is beyond all comparison with the eternal weight of glory that awaits us, in Christ.
For those that are called according to His good purpose, God's anger will always turn into His favour. Moment of chastening will always be transformed into a lifetime of grace. Weeping may indeed last for a night but joy comes in the morning.
Whether or not the seasons of difficulty and pain we all experience are self-induced through our sinful actions, careless attitude or foolish indifference. However, whether they are the result of the actions, attitudes and indifference of others beyond our control, God's anger lasts but for a brief moment but His grace and favour is everlasting.
Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning. May we develop an attitude of continuous prayerful praise - for God is faithful to fulfil all His promises to His children.
Heavenly Father I praise and thank You for Your loving-kindness and long-suffering towards me and all Your children. Thank You that no matter what difficulty and pain I may go through in this life, that weeping will be replaced with laughter and pain with joy, in Jesus name, AMEN.
