Getting Through Your Night-Time Experiences

‘Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning.’ Psalm 30:5 NKJV

God is with us during our ‘night-time experiences’. Think about it; you’ve been knocked down, but by God’s grace you’ve gotten back up. No matter how dark the night, you’ve lived to see the morning. Times change and relationships change, but God is always the same, He’s the one who brought you through every difficulty in the past, and He promises to be with you every day of the future. Note the words ‘joy comes’. That means you will rise again and rejoice again. Your drive to survive comes from a well that’s already within you, and the Lord is the One who fills that well. Let it flow! You don’t have to make it flow, just let it flow. Sixteenth-century English clergyman and historian Dr Thomas Fuller said, ‘if it were not for hope, the heart would break.’- and it always comes. No matter what you’re going through right now, don’t give up until you 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 – morning will surely break. Let nothing keep you from believing that! God will dry your tears and you’ll awake with a new song. One of the greatest promises in Scripture is this: ‘His compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness. The Lord is my portion…therefore will I hope in him. The Lord is good unto them that wait for him, to the soul that seeketh him’ (Lamentations 3:22-25 KJV). Yesterday ended last night. It’s a new day, so make up your mind to enjoy it!
