Weeping Won’t Last

Psalm 30:5 NLT, “For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime! Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.”

First, God’s anger is contrasted with His favor; then weeping is contrasted with joy. They both bring to mind God’s deep love for us. He doesn’t allow anger to come between Him and His love for His children. He still shows us His love and favor, even when we fall short.

The weeping we sometimes experience in this life is overcome with the joy of knowing God loves us and is watching over us, through our ups and downs. This verse also challenges us to make sure that we do not let anger cause us to mistreat others. We should let the love of God be our guide in the way we speak and act. May you find joy today in knowing God loves you deeply and unconditionally.

    As we take joy in the knowledge of God’s love surpassing his anger, this is also a humble reminder of how we should not hold onto anger but let love be how we operate. Such a good reminder Dawn 😊

    What comfort it brings to know that our trials won’t last. Joy will come! And I appreciate the reminder to let God’s love flow through us, so that we won’t mistreat others with anger. God is our guide. He doesn’t stay angry. He is loving and merciful and gracious. What an amazing Father we have! 🥰

    This goes glove in hand with something I read this morning. Some of the folks at the church in Corinth thought they were free to do just about whatever they liked. But Paul reminded them they were not to make their brothers and sisters in Christ stumble.

    We experience weeping and sorrow in this life but we can take heart in any situation knowing that the day will come that God will wipe every tear and also in knowing Jesus is with us in every valley in this life.

    My grandmother says God’s anger lasts only a moment but does a lifetime of damage. And when God’s favor is upon you it lasts a lifetime because it will be on you, your children, their children and their children’s children. It’s a dangerous thing to fall on the hands of God to be judged by Him and it’s an honor to receive favor from the Lord. God bless you!!

    I thank God that the night of weeping will not last. The morning filled with joy will come. May the Lord gives us strength to endure until the day breaks. Thanks for this encouraging word.
