Songs of Joy During Sorrow

The amazing thing about God is He gives us songs of joy during times of sorrow. If we can continue to keep our eyes on Jesus, joy always comes in the morning. Though it seems dark an gloomy at times our Savior has promised to never leave us or forsake you and me.

Take a look at these great scriptures:

Psalms 126:5
Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.

John16:33
In the world you have tribulation and trials and distress and frustration; but be of good cheer [take courage; be confident, certain, undaunted]! For I have overcome the world. [I have deprived it of power to harm you and have conquered it for you.]

Somehow the things we focus on get bigger. Choose to focus on things today that you can be thankful for. This will help to keep you from feeling gloomy.

Life sometimes is difficult, that is just the way life is. God will provide joy through and after the difficult times that we experience. Jesus is basically saying in this scripture, I know what you’re going through, I am with you, I am your protector, and I have a winning plan, trust me, smile and be cheerful, I am on your side. If we keep putting our trust in the Lord, God promises songs of joy will come.

Prayer: God help me today to keep my focus on your reality and promises for my life. I understand that even though times are tough, you can bring joy in the mist of the messes. God please put a new song in my spirit today. I cannot get through the sorrow without your touch.

God Having a Plan for Our Lives

It really is true that God is having his way in our lives. There is a plan that can be seen through prophecy being fulfilled. When something that was dreamed many years ago comes to pass then we know that the Lord knows everything about our lives. Dreams and visions are certainly a sign that the Lord knows the future of all men.

Acts 5:38-39

Therefore, in the present case I advise you: Leave these men alone! Let them go! For if their purpose or activity is of human origin, it will fail. But if it is from God, you will not be able to stop these men; you will only find yourselves fighting against God.”

God has a plan and destiny for our lives. Remember the Holy Spirit will lead you into all truth and reveal to you things to come. Spend time seeking after the Lords direction through prayer. Once his plan is launched in our lives as our scripture says, it will not fail. He opens doors that cannot be shut; he also closes doors that cannot be opened.

Proverbs 21:30
There is no wisdom, no insight, and no plan that can succeed against the LORD.

He promises that all things work for the good to those who love God and are called according to his purpose. You cannot have a purpose without a plan.God will fulfill his purpose and plan if we yield our will to his leading and guidance.
