Discussion for Psalms 30:5

  • Pauline Bell Powell on Psalms 30:5
    I use to think this scripture " Weeping May Endure For A Night, But Joy Cometh In The Morning", only meant that one may cry at night and rejoice in the morning.

    Now from experience, I may feel stressed, depressed, overwhelmed from all the things that happened throughout the day, but the next morning I am given a new surge of hope, energy and renewed strength. Praise be to God!!!
  • Chris - in Reply on Psalms 30:5
    Philippians 4:6,7: "Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus."

    That great Scripture being penned by the apostle holed up & bound in chains in prison, serves as a good reminder to us to "cast all of our care upon the Lord". It is certain that the events of the past days(s) cannot be changed and those of the future cannot be known, but voluntarily handing over the things outside our knowledge & control to a merciful, loving God Who does know & can handle them perfectly, is the best thing we can ever do. It is one thing to carefully & prayerfully consider the difficulties we're in, seeking wisdom from the Lord as to how to proceed, but when we allow that matter to constantly oppress the mind, taking away our joy, our hope & even our sleep, then this undermines the Grace of God for the believer & also to the deterioration of the mind & body.

    It has always been the work of God's Spirit to bring a restless, suffering soul to a point of restful peace in Christ. Worry, agitation in spirit & irrational decisions come from one who has refused the Spirit's help, preferring to use one's own wisdom. This can never bring the Peace of God in one's life. Isaiah 30:15 well says, "For thus saith the Lord GOD, the Holy One of Israel; In returning and rest shall ye be saved; in quietness and in confidence shall be your strength: and ye would not." Loosely translated for today: 'salvation from our struggles can only be found in coming first to the Lord & leaving it all with Him; our spiritual strength comes only by tenaciously holding onto a quiet confidence in God's great Wisdom & Power, that which He requires of us'.

    Thank you for sharing your testimony of God's special ministry to your life during the times you felt you were imprisoned in but now rejoicing in His freedom.

    May His name be praised at all times. Pain, agony and all difficulties may come in the morning but perseverance and determination will brings prosperity.
  • Roger omaboe on Psalms 30:5
    Pregnancy goes pains but the moment the baby arrives joy comes. So will yr miracle be.
  • Grace on Psalms 30:5
    weeping, sorrow all these are only for a short while. when you are discouraged, afraid or mourning, you are in darkness because nothing matters to you anymore. But know that this will only last for a few hours and then light will shine. After all darkness lasts from 8pm to 5am i.e. roughly 10 hours. remember sunshine will ultimately come as darkness will not be permanent. Hence joy will come bubbling in the morning. Be joyous in the Lord nothing comes to Him from behind.
  • Liah Vanuatu on Psalms 30:5
