Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning
Will land you on fair Canaan's coast.
The labors of our feet.
Morning By Morning
I read this devotion this morning and immediately I knew that God was speaking to me. In light of the trials and all the other things my family and I have been going through; this was God's way of telling me that everything will be o.k. tomorrow. Immediately one of my favorite pieces of scripture came to mind.
"Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his lifeb]">?
"And why do you worry about clothes? See how the lilies of the field grow. They do not labor or spin. Yet I tell you that not even Solomon in all his splendor was dressed like one of these. If that is how God clothes the grass of the field, which is here today and tomorrow is thrown into the fire, will he not much more clothe you, O you of little faith? So do not worry, saying, 'What shall we eat?' or 'What shall we drink?' or 'What shall we wear?' For the pagans run after all these things, and your heavenly Father knows that you need them. But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.
Each new day in our lives on this earth may have trials and tribulations. However, we who are in Christ have have the greatest hope in all eternity. We know that if our troubles should bring us to death, then we will be joined with our Savior for all eternity. We have the blessed hope that throughout all our troubles that He is with us. He can and will carry us through. For every trouble we endure has been preordained by God for us, to conform us to the image of Christ. This is so that, (Philipians 1:6) "he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.", would be fulfilled.
