Joy in the Morning!
Lord, is there any area in my life that is lacking joy?
Sing praise to the LORD, you saints of His,
And give thanks at the remembrance of His holy name.
For His anger is but for a moment,
His favor is for life;
Weeping may endure for a night,
But joy comes in the morning.
There is much weeping in the land, but joy is on the horizon! It will break forth like the dawn. Aren’t our hearts ready for it? We need the healing that only the Lord can provide. Much has made us sick – sickness in our spirits, sickness in our souls, and sickness in our bodies. May the glory of the Lord spring forth and bring His healing in every facet of our being. And may the weeping of the moment be replaced with the joy of gladness. May we rejoice in all that He created us to be and all that He created for us.
Then your light shall break forth like the morning,
Your healing shall spring forth speedily,
And your righteousness shall go before you;
The glory of the LORD shall be your rear guard.
Lord Jesus, things are not right in our land. There is much pain, regret, discouragement, weariness, and social unrest. There are many reasons for this. These problems didn’t just happen overnight, but You have the power to act speedily. All You need to do is say the word and we shall be healed (Matthew 8:8).
Lord, Your words have the power to heal all things. Your word has the power to heal our physical bodies. Your word has the power to heal our broken hearts. Your word has the power to overcome the powers of darkness. Your word has the power to mend relationships. Your word has the power to deliver us from our sorrows and restore our joy. You are the Healer and the One who speaks life and brings life into all things. Even when our physical bodies give out, Your word has the power to resurrect us with a new one. Thank You, Jesus, for healing our pain and giving us Your joy (John 15:11).
You sent abundant rain, O God, to refresh the weary land.
There your people finally settled, and with a bountiful harvest, O God, you provided for your needy people.
The present state of our land is weariness. It’s weary of the ways, systems, and solutions of this world. We have tried and tried again to bring healing, safety, and prosperity to our land, but every attempt has fallen short and left it in a state of disarray and lacking the sufficient resources which it so desperately needs.
Come, Lord Jesus, and refresh our weary land. For Your ways settle Your people in a good dwelling place with a bountiful harvest. May our weary souls come, sit at Your table, and feast upon Your goodness until we rise in the everlasting joy of Your presence, for You are our morning on the horizon!
