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.
