  • Title: Joy Comes In The Morning
    Text: Ps. 30:5
    [Psa 30:5]  For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
    • Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning
    • It does not matter how long one has been weeping, your joy will surely come in the name of Jesus Christ
    Main Topic
    • Weeping represents unpleasant situations or events that brings pain and sorrow
    • David and his men wept at Ziklag because their families and possessions were taken captive – [1Sa 30:4]  Then David and the people that were with him lifted up their voice and wept, until they had no more power to weep.
    • Hannah wept before the Lord for a child (bitterness of soul) – [1Sa 1:10]  And she was in bitterness of soul, and prayed unto the LORD, and wept sore.
    • Missing heaven will result in eternal weeping – [Mat 8:12]  But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
    For a night
    • Weeping may endure for a night
    • A night represents the duration of the weeping
    • A night means there is an expiration date for the weeping
    • A night means the weeping will not continue forever
    • A night means the day will break and the weeping will be over
    • I declare in the name of Jesus, everything causing you to weep shall be over in Jesus name
    Joy cometh in the morning
    • The good news is that the sun will rise again.  
    • As long as nothing can stop the sun from rising in the morning, nothing shall stop your joy from manifesting in the name of Jesus Christ
    • There are different levels of joy, but they have one thing in common.
      1. Joy and fullness of joy – [Psa 16:11]  Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.
        • Joy comes from being in the presence of God
        • Even in the midst of storms, trials, and tribulations, the presence of God will surely bring fullness of joy
      2. Great joy – [Act 8:8]  And there was great joy in that city.
        • When deliverance from spiritual wickedness takes place, there is great joy.
        • Samaria was delivered from unclean spirits, sicknesses, and diseases
      3. Exceeding joy – [1Pe 4:13]  But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
        • [Jud 1:24]  Now unto him that is able to keep you from falling, and to present you faultless before the presence of his glory with exceeding joy,
        • When the glory of Jesus Christ is revealed in the suffering of believers, there shall be exceeding joy
      4. Exceeding great joy – [Mat 2:10]  When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
        • This type of joy took place when Jesus was born.  When God came to the earth in the person of Jesus Christ
        • It will happen again when Jesus returns in His glory at rapture – we must not miss it. So that we can experience the great joy that is awaiting us.
      5. Everlasting joy – [Isa 35:10]  And the ransomed of the LORD shall return, and come to Zion with songs and everlasting joy upon their heads: they shall obtain joy and gladness, and sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
        • [Isa 51:11]  Therefore the redeemed of the LORD shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away.
        • This is the kind of joy that lasts forever and it will only happen when we make heaven
        • One cannot find everlasting joy in this world, it can only be in heaven.
    • All the joy have one thing in common: Jesus Christ is the giver of joy
    • Without Jesus Christ, there is no joy
    • [Mat 11:28]  Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. [Mat 11:29]  Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. [Mat 11:30]  For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
