Your sorrow will turn to joy - Bro. T. Stephen

My beloved Children in Christ, I greet and bless you all in the name of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Today’s auspicious word is taken from Isaiah 60:20, “And the days of your mourning shall be ended.” This is a prophecy from God – The days of your mourning shall be ended.

After Jesus died and before the news of His resurrection reached Mary Magdalene she was at the garden tomb weeping. When they buried the body of Jesus she was there. On the third day when she came early in the morning to the tomb, she could not find the body of Jesus. Even for two days she could not be without seeing Jesus. She searched everywhere wondering if someone took the body of Jesus. When suddenly Jesus wanting to put an end to her mourning appeared in front of her asking, “Woman why are you crying? Whom are you seeking? Why is your face forlorn? Why are you crying?” She, supposing Him to be the gardener, said to Him, “Sir, this is where we buried my Jesus, but now He is not here if You have carried Him away, I will not trouble you, tell me where You have laid Him, and I will take Him away” , because if Jesus was with her, all her sorrows will turn into joy. She was sure of it. The reason for her sadness was the death of Jesus. Knowing He cannot but reveal Himself beyond this, Jesus said, “Mary!” She immediately recognized the voice it was Jesus Christ. Her eyes were opened. She said, “Rabboni” Which means Good Teacher. Her sorrow turned into joy. After that, she ran with uncontrollable joy to inform the disciples, “I saw Jesus!” Jesus died and was buried. This loss was her sorrow. Now she saw Him, her sorrow turned to joy. She told the whole world.

Which loss is making you sorrowful today? What is making your house a sorrowful place? In your mourning house, Jesus will bring a joyful occasion. Jesus will take that place to compensate for the grief. That day when Jesus came her sorrow changed. Today whoever is sorrowful, in pain, facing loss, in debt, with sickness, pestilence, due to the corrupt life of children, due to lack of blessings. Are you mourning? Jesus is coming to touch and bless you. The issue which is causing you to mourn, He will do a miracle and make you glad.

Dear Lord, we thank You. Lord, you know why my children are sorrowful. You know the reason for their tears. Please intervene in that situation. Whether it is a court case, or sickness, whatever is troubling, weighing them down and making them mourn. In that Lord give them the assurance that You are there. You be our Jehovah Jireh and take care of my children. Turn all their sorrow into joy.
In Jesus name.
