For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.
God is the God of comfort. Even when he deals harshly with our sin and rebellion, it is for our good. It will last only a short while and then it gives way to rejoicing.
If you are in a time of discipline or facing the cruel consequences of sin, don't give up. Morning will come, and on that dawn will come God's grace. It's more than worth the wait!
Father God, please bless your children who are facing hardships and difficulty. Please help them endure through "the night" so that when your dawn comes, they can experience the great rejoicing that lies ahead. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
