Sorrow Into Joy - Bro. T. Stephen

My Dearly beloved brothers and sisters in Christ, I greet and bless you all in the Name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. May the name of the Lord be glorified. On this day July 04th, it is a great pleasure to meet you through this auspicious message. May the Lord bless you. Let us read John 16:20 “but your sorrow will be turned into joy.”

When will this sorrow disappear, when will I come out of this sorrowful circumstance? The Lord knows that many of you are facing sorrow and is talking to you through this verse. But your sorrow will be turned into joy. He doesn’t just say this and keep quiet. If a miracle happens in that thing that which is causing you sorrow, only then your sorrow will be turned into joy.

Today, what has caused you sorrow? Jabez’s mother named him as Jabez which means sorrow. But he did not ruminate over his name and go into depression, nor seek pity from others, but went to the Lord who would change his sorrow into joy. He cried out to God saying, Oh that You would bless me indeed and enlarge my territory! Let Your hand be with me and keep me from the evil one. Already my mother has named me as sorrow above that no evil, loss, failure or disease comes it will increase my sorrow. So he prayed keep me from evil. God granted Jabez what he prayed for and honoured him. Instead of becoming overwhelmed in your sorrow, you should look to God who can change your sorrow and handover that thing that is causing you sorrow. Sorrowful occasions might have taken place in the family, loss of life, loss of property, shame. Don’t ruminate over these things and become sick in your body.

When afflicted with sorrow cry out to God, Lord comfort me, You are a God of all comfort. This has happened and my heart is very sorrowful. I am unable to run my family like this. If my situation continues like this, I cannot go back to normal life. God will immediately intervene and perform a miracle. Just like Isaac’s sorrowful house after his mother death was changed into a joyful home where he was playing with his wife. God turned that sorrow by allowing a happy occasion to take place and changed the house into a joyful one. Today in your house such happy, joyful occasions will take place in your home.

Prayer: Dear Lord, we thank You. We submit those things that have caused sorrow to my children into Your hands. We pray that God will deliver them. Perform a miracle and a wonder. Let them get back all their joy and peace. Let their weeping be turned in to rejoicing. Any recurring disease, expenses, loss, debts increasing Lord perform a miracle so that their sorrow will be turned into joy. In Jesus Name. Amen.
