David could really praise God for knowing that his anger last for a moment, but God’s favor lasts a lifetime.
But, before we get our shout on, let’s try to understand weeping nights and joyful mornings by asking ourselves a few questions.
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 sin that you’ve been struggling with for some time, but just can’t seem to break loose.
What is your weep?
Have you ever considered that you may be the cause of your weep?
But whatever the reason is you’re weeping, you can’t dwell on the weep or the night you’re in.
Do you know that you may be the reason why you’re still in weeping nights?
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
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?
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.”
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.
When you travel and get a hotel room, you lodge there, it isn’t your permanent home, but you stay there temporarily.
