WEEPING ENDURES IN THE NIGHT

David could really praise God for knowing that his anger last for a moment, but God’s favor lasts a lifetime.

And in our highlighted scripture for today, David gives us something to shout about, weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning!

But, before we get our shout on, let’s try to understand weeping nights and joyful mornings by asking ourselves a few questions.

The first question you need to ask yourself is, “What is your weep?”

What is it that causes you distress and grief? What brings you mental aguish and pain?

What is it that keeps you from getting a good night’s sleep?

Somebody’s weep may be their employment situation or unemployment.

Somebody’s weep may be a broken relationship with someone they love.

Somebody’s weep may be a sin that you’ve been struggling with for some time, but just can’t seem to break loose.

What is your weep?

Whatever your weep is, God knows all about it

Have you ever considered that you may be the cause of your weep?

Or maybe your weep is something that God has allowed to come your way.

But whatever the reason is you’re weeping, you can’t dwell on the weep or the night you’re in.

The longer we dwell on the night, the farther we remain from the joyful morning.

Do you know that you may be the reason why you’re still in weeping nights?

If you’re trying to fix a situation that you have no control over, then as long as you do so you will remain in your weeping night.

Maybe you haven’t completely turned your problems over to God, if you haven’t you will remain in your weeping night

When we allow God to have control in our weeping nights, then we will be able to clearly see the joyful morning approaching

But to better understand the night season and to clearly see the morning approaching, we have to know what our weep is.

How can I cry out to God for help, if I don’t know what the problem is?

Of course God knows all about it, but I need to know what I’m dealing with as well?

And I don’t mean that we take God out of the equation, because only through Him will we truly understand what we’re dealing with.

But when we understand our weep, and what causes us to be in our night seasons, then when God shows us the direction we need to go in, we’ll be able to clearly see the path that will lead us to our joyful mornings.

But David said, “Weeping may endure for a night.”

I don’t know if you see what I see here, but I see a reason to shout and praise God before my joy in the morning even arrives!

The simple fact that weeping only endures for a night, is a good reason to praise God.

When the sun sets and darkness takes over the sky, 8 to 9 hours later, the sun starts to rise again.

The sunshine erases the darkness from the sky.

David uses the night to show us that our weeping is temporary, the night isn’t going to last.

In Hebrew the word “endure” is loon, which means “to lodge or stop over.”

When you travel and get a hotel room, you lodge there, it isn’t your permanent home, but you stay there temporarily.

So it is with our weeping, it lodges or stops over for a night.
