A Daily Devotion for Wednesday, January 12


Psalm 30:5


For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may remain for a night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.

This is a favorite verse for me. I love the symbolism of the nighttime darkness giving way to the sunshine of the morning. This happens over and over, throughout our lives. It is a constant. God is in this constant renewal of our hearts. Each day we can start refreshed and looking at life through a clear and bright lens. We are loved by God, and He is here to comfort us.


Heavenly Father, you know when I am hurting. I thank you for the peace you bring to me, over and over, and with each morning a new look at a new day. You have always provided everything I need. Amen


Becky, transforming

Psalms 30:5


David wrote from experience, knowing that any pain, anxiety and struggle he would face in life were only temporary. In his darkest and most desperate hours, David had called out to the Lord, and God had answered. Every time! David had seen this time and time again. No night lasts forever. The sun will always rise, and with the dawn comes the blessing and favor of the Father, who is hard at work to bless and strengthen me/us from the darkness to the light. Life may not be perfect, comfortable, or free of pain and struggle, not even for the most faithful servant of God. But in the midst of our pain, uncertainty, and fear, God is alw…

Psalm 30: 5 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.


In this life we experience difficulty and pain. Often a product of our own sinful actions, a careless attitude or indifference toward God or others. We anger God by these actions but when we repent God’s anger is short lived. We cause God great sorrow when we do not follow His teachings, but once we repent and praise God, he forgives us.


Dearest Lord, thank you for your loving kindness. I praise you and thank you for your forgiveness. No matter how many challenges I face in this life, I know that…

Psalm 30:5 . . . weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.


I used to lie awake at night worrying and trying to solve a problem. Years ago I realized that it doesn’t work very well, but when looking at a problem in the morning it doesn’t seem as bad. God has given me something else to appreciate in the morning – Barbara wakes me with a big smile and a good morning. She makes a point of being upbeat in the morning in order to start the day right and it has brighten my day as well.


Dear Lord thank for my mornings and for all the good in my life. Amen.

Psalm 30:5 From God, through David, we are reminded that God always loves us, even when we anger and disappoint him. But not much is really permanent. Hopefully we work through our sorrows and rejoice in the morning joy. For me, the reminder of God‘s love and morning joy actually comes with the rising sun each day. I live where I can try to capture that joy each morning! Some are unseen under clouds, some are pretty, and some are spectacular, much like our lives. Somehow, may we all find the joy in the morning, whether it be a City view, a tree outside our window, or children waiting for the bus. Prayer: gracious God, I know I will have sorrows, bu…

Psalm 30:5

The phrase, “weeping may remain for a night,” reminds me of “the dark night of the soul” described by St John of the Cross and demonstrated so vividly in the autobiography of Mother Teresa. Time, of course has no relevance to God, and our personal dark nights of the soul may last years in the way we measure time. We can have victory over these sorrows if we can maintain our grasp, however tenuous, on our faith that brings rejoicing in the morning, whenever that comes for us.

Prayer - God of the morning, I give thanks that You are also God of the night, protecting and carrying me to a place where there can be rejoicing.…
