Weeping may endure for a night, But a shout of joy comes in the morning. Psalms 30:5. Amplified version.
Many times we face challenges and it's as though there's no way out of the situation.
Just as the psalmist said, weeping may endure for a night, that is, we may encounter challenges just like Job and seems there's no way out, but, our Father is a faithful father that gives victory to his children.
Fast forward back to 2015 when I gained admission into one of the University here in Nigeria. I was so happy and my parents were also happy that I gained admission to study Human Anatomy.
Then on one sunday morning, my mum got hospitalised and all the money that was to be used to cater for my school fees and admission fee was spent on hospital bills. No one to call unto for assistance and the deadline for payment is near. Throughout that week, I cried and prayed to God for divine intervention. The week after that's the deadline for payment of admission fee, nothing is coming forth and my mum is on the hospital bed receiving treatment.
Prayed to God again, nothing happened and it's as if all hope is lost. Could you believe that two days to the deadline for the payment, God manifested himself as the God of Provision [Jehovah Jireh]. One of my mum's staff at her office came to visit her at the hospital and gave me the money that i neede for the payment and not that alone, my mum was discharged within a week to the date she got hospitalised and the doctors were like, this can only be a miracle!
Friends, what's that which you are passing through as it's as if there's no way out?
Is it that you've been finding a means to pay up your bills and it's almost resulting to shame for you? Here is what the bible says:
Now to Him who is able to [carry out His purpose and] do superabundantly more than all that we dare ask or think [infinitely beyond our greatest prayers, hopes, or dreams], according to His power that is at work within us. Ephesians 3:20.
Look up to Jesus who is the author and finisher of our/your faith. He's more than able to see you through. He's more than able to carry you through the storms of life.
Despite all that happened to me and my Mum, God gave us victory through his son Jesus Christ. I'm now a graduate of Human Anatomy and my mum is still hale and hearty. Someone whom the doctor declared that she will spend the rest of her life using wheelchair.
See what the book of James has to say about challenges, temptations and trials: James 1:2-3
Consider it nothing but joy, my [a]brothers and sisters, whenever you fall into various trials. 3 Be assured that the testing of your faith [through experience] produces endurance [leading to spiritual maturity, and inner peace].
Whatsoever thing that you are passisng through, count it as Joy because God's about to reveal his glory in and through you in due time.
Of a truth, weeping may endure for the night, but, Joy comes in the morning.
