JOY COMETH IN THE MORNING
Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all. (Psalm 34:19)
“God always has an escape route and is faithful to bring us out.” -Mark Hankins
I’m glad that the Lord said in Psalm 34:19 that He would deliver us out of all of our afflictions. He did not say half of them or most of them, He said, “out of them all.” God always makes a way out.
The word afflictions means adversity, distress, tribulation, persecution, depression, misery, trouble, and pressure. God never guarantees us that we will be exempt from adversity. However, He does guarantee always to bring us out.
Joy cometh in the morning. It may seem like a long night, but the night cannot last forever. The sun is coming up on a new day. The Sun of Righteousness is rising with healing in His wings (beams), and you shall go forth and grow up as calves released from the stall. (Malachi 4:2) As sure as the sun comes up every morning, your deliverance is on the way. The earth is constantly turning on its axis. Even though you may not feel like it, your situation is turning right now. It may seem dark now, but something is happening. Things are turning, the morning is certain, and the sun is rising!
Confession: Joy cometh! Healing cometh! Blessing cometh! Money cometh! Faith cometh!
