'For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning. ' Psalms 30:5 (https://my.bible.com/bible/111/PSA.30.5)
As Christians, we sometimes go through periods of testing. A time of testing always seems like a never-ending ordeal. God sometimes allows a time of testing in our lives to strengthen our faith. When our faith is tested, it allows us to trust in God to provide for and comfort us. If we never went through struggles (whatever they may be), how could we truly trust God to help us? We also need to remember that a time (or season) of testing will not last forever. We will see the end of our testing and trials. We need to continue in prayer. We need to trust God and move forward with the things that He wants us to do.
When we read the verse above, we remember that it is hard to trust God when all you see is bad news. However, God is saying that our sorrow (i.e. our testing/trials/troubles/struggles) may last for a time, but joy (the end of our testing) will surely come. We will go through difficult times, (like this pandemic), but it will end. God wants us to know that He will bring deliverance at the right time. Let us continue to trust in God, even in our difficulties.
Let us pray.
