Morning is coming

17 February 2019
‘Weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.’

When we’re struggling, nights can feel like the hardest times. We can end up lying awake for hours in the dark, thinking about our problems, imagining the worst, and wondering how we’ll face the day that’s coming. But God’s with us during all our ‘night-time experiences’. It might be a literal night that we’re struggling to get through, or it might be a season of our life that feels like a never-ending, difficult night. But even on the darkest and hardest of nights, the morning will come. We might have been knocked down, but by God’s grace we can get back up. Times change and relationships change, but God’s always the same. He’s the one who brought us through every difficulty in the past, and He promises to be with us every day of the future. The Bible says: ‘Weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.’ When we’re going through a tough time, we need to remember that we’ll rise again, and we’ll rejoice again. No matter what we’re going through right now, let’s not give up. We need to keep our hope that we’ll see the morning. It’s at the end of every dark night and every broken promise – and it always comes. After every setback, betrayal, and denial – the sun will rise again. God will dry our tears and we’ll wake up ready to sing a new song of praise to God. One of the greatest promises in the Bible is this: ‘Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning…The Lord is good to those whose hope is in him, to the one who seeks him’ (Lamentations 3:22-25 NIV). Today is a new day, so let’s enjoy it.

 

What Now?

Set your alarm for early tomorrow morning so that you can get up, make yourself a hot drink, and watch the sun rise. As it’s rising, thank God that the morning always follows the night.
