Joy cometh

Psalm 30:4-5

Sing to the Lord, O you saints of His, and give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name.
For His anger is but for a moment, but His favor is for a lifetime or in His favor is life.  Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.


 In this Psalm the Lord gives us opposites to consider as we go through life and adversity, remembering He is holy.

His anger lasts but a moment – His favor lasts a lifetime

Weeping may endure for a night – Joy cometh in the morning

Joy is a response to an approaching event that will bring change.  Joy is a response, not a reaction. Joy is the remaining fulfillment after our emotions are exhausted.  Joy is given by way of expectation from a proven source or situation.

Cometh is the action of something or someone sent full of direction, purpose, and power. Cometh is an equipping arrival of a needed or desired answer. Cometh does not surprise and always hits the mark; for it is sent.

Morning is the very beginning or start of something. Morning is the dawn, first light or revelation of a breaking through of all previous circumstances.  Morning is never repeated in exactness; for it is new and different each time.

Knowing these things, we can see the revelation that (JOY) our response to the coming change (COMETH) is equipped to hit the mark, from the (MORNING) very beginning of this new and different season.

So our weeping may endure for a night, but our response to the coming change is equipped to hit the mark from the very beginning of this new and different season.

  1. AMEN!!!
    I recall in my early walk with God, the eyes of my understanding were not yet enlightened to this revelation. I actually thought that once I went to bed and woke up that my sorrows would be gone…..Only to get out of bed with the same heaviness, oppression, & depression I went to bed with. At that time, I could only see “in the natural” until God opened my eyes to “the spiritual” regarding this Scripture.
    I’ll never forget the “ah ha moment” when God opened my eyes to this Scripture. A dear & precious Sister in the Lord wrote to me in an e-mail….”Weeping may last for a night but joy comes in the morning…..Morning is not what has an “AM” behind it but it’s when you WAKE UP to God’s perspective and apply it to the situation.” GLORY!!!
    Luke 24:32-35, 45 (NKJV) And they said to one another, “Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while He opened the Scriptures to us?” 33 So they rose up that very hour and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven and those who were with them gathered together, 34 saying, “The Lord is risen indeed, and has appeared to Simon!” 35 And they told about the things that had happened on the road, and how He was known to them in the breaking of bread.
    45 And He opened their understanding, that they might comprehend the Scriptures.
    Isaiah 60:1- ARISE & SHINE!…For the Light has come! And the glory of the Lord is risen upon you! AMEN!!!
    Jane….Thank you for inspiring us & breaking the Bread of the Scriptures!
