TOPIC: Joy in Sorrow
SCRIPTURE READING: In the day when I cried, [you] answered me, and strengthened me … —Psalm 138:3
At some time in life all of us feel the loneliness of sorrow. Mary and Martha were saddened by the death of their brother, Lazarus, and Martha said to Jesus, “If you had been here, my brother would not have died.” Theirs was a loneliness of sorrow. The shortest verse in the Bible tells us that at the tomb of Lazarus “Jesus wept.” He enters into our sorrows.
When we come to Jesus Christ, He does not promise to exempt us from trouble or sorrow. Tears will come, but deep inside there will be a joy that is difficult to explain to you. It is a joy from God—produced by the Holy Spirit. In the midst of trials and agony and tears which come to us all, a supernatural power is given out, producing joy.
PRAYER FOR THE DAY:
Your comfort in times of sorrow, loving Lord Jesus, enfolds me, giving light and hope in my darkness.
PRAYER OF SALVATION
Please say this pray
I come to You, Lord Jesus. I admit that I am a sinner, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. Wash me away from all unrighteousness and cleanse me clean Today. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised me.
Thank you for saying that prayer, you are in CHRIST now, Old things have passed AWAY………….HALLELUYAH
