Expect Joy

“Now, God…bring rains to our drought-stricken lives, so that those who planted their crops in despair will shout hurrahs at the harvest, so those who went off with heavy hearts will come home laughing, with armloads of blessing.” (Psalm 126:4-6 THE MESSAGE)

Dare to pray LARGE prayers today. Prayers of joyous expectation. Where you see only dark despair, dare to believe that our compassionate Lord is bringing you shouts of victory. In those places where your heart is heavy, dare to believe that our life-transforming Lord is bringing fulfillment and joy-filled laughter.

Let the joy of confident expectation lift your spirit today.

Ours is a faithful, promise-keeping Lord. There are lessons to be learned in our seasons of weeping, but darkness will surely give way to bright mornings of release.

Rest in the fact that our Lord who promises joy has proved himself faithful.
