Dearly Beloved in Christ, I greet and bless you in the Name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The auspicious life giving word of the Lord, for today is from the book of Jeremiah 31:13, “ For I will turn their mourning to joy. I will comfort them and make them rejoice, rather than sorrow.”
Dear Child , sorrowful incidents may have happened in your family in the past. You may be helpless with no one to comfort you. Today, the Lord is comforting you with His word. The Lord is telling, ‘ I will turn your sorrows to joy and will comfort you’. A man can only tell words of comfort to another, but only God can actually comfort a man. The Bible says, ‘The Lord will comfort Zion’. If your sorrows must be turned to joy, the God of comfort must interfere and turn about the sorrowful incident into a joyous one or must bring a happy incident in your family to comfort you. Through that, God will comfort you. If the Lord is turning your sorrows to joy, it means that the Lord is interfering with the incident that causes you sorrow. You have been thinking, ‘I do not have a job. It has been several years since I lost my job’. Are you depressed and staying at home? Today, the Lord is going to open a new door. I worked faithfully. I did my ministry faithfully. But why did I face this loss? Sometimes, you may face several problems and even losses when the Lord is testing your faith. But the Lord will restore double to you. Job in the bible says, ‘ I received evil for good’. However, God turned the evil into a double portion of blessings. Even today, if you are in a state where you lost much, if that is the reason for your sorrow, the Lord will give a double portion of it and will establish you on this earth. You must be joyful always, and not brood in sorrow. The Lord asked his disciples who were on their way to Emmaus, ‘Why are you in sorrow?. Today, He is telling, ‘Do not worry, I am there for you’. I will turn your sorrows into joy. The Lord is going to revive all the blessings that are dead and will turn your sorrows into joy.
Prayer: Loving Father, we thank you! Lord, perform a miracle in the area, in which my children have been sorrowful, make them rejoice. If the loss of their job has caused them depression, agony and dejection, give them a better job with a better salary. Lord, some are ageing and not getting married, let all the obstacles be removed and let weddings happen. Meet all their needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.
