Psalm 30:5 (KJV) 5 For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
The God of love also gets angry. But we can still be joyful about it because His anger is but for a moment—it doesn’t last for a long time. We’re willing to be under His discipline and/or punishment, rather under man’s punishment and/or vengeance. God is inifintely more merciful than us. Our God is a merciful and gracious, and His favour towards us lasts for a lifetime; I would even say, it lasts forever.
As believers, we’re not exempt from loneliness. We can still spend days and nights of sorrow. It isn’t sinful to be sad. Even our precious Lord Jesus experienced extremely deep grief in the Garden of Gethsemane—hours before His death. But we also know: sadness too is momentary. Joy awaits and dawns upon us. We may weep at night, but joy characterizes the life of a believer. Instead of a face of a downtrodden, we wear smiles on our lips.
Our God can, He is willing, and He does turn our mourning into dancing; He changes our garments of sadness with garments of gladness. Praise God!!! As we experience pain and loneliness, we do so with hope for a joyful tomorrow.
