The Light Daily Devotional – Sorrow Turned to Joy
Caption: Sorrow Turned to Joy
KEY WORD FOR TODAY
This life is characterized by both sorrow and joy. However, in every situation of life be mindful of the fact that the Lord has guaranteed that your sorrow will turn to joy.
“I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, that you shall weep and grieve, but the world will rejoice. You will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned into joy.” (John 16:20 AMP)
There is no anointing that can exempt you from the sorrow associated with this life. It is an outright deception when you are told that you will never have sorrow in life. At a point in destiny our Lord was sorrowful. His disciples became sorrowful when He was crucified but their sorrow turned to joy at His resurrection.
Irrespective of what you are passing through, the Lord has already said you will weep and grief over situations of life but He also declared that your sorrow will turn to joy. It doesn’t matter if people are rejoicing over the situation of your life, the major issue is that by the virtue of the resurrection of Christ from death you will resurrect from every sorrowful situation of life.
Question For Meditation: Do you still believe that your sorrow will turn to Joy?
Prayer Point: Lord! Turn my mourning into dancing; remove my sackcloth and clothed me with joy in Jesus name. Amen.
Main Emphasis: No matter how sorrowful the conditions of your life may appear to be, the fact still remains that God has made a provision for joy over all sorrow.
