Brighter Days are Coming! Part Two
“Behold, the days are coming,” declares the LORD, “when the plowman will overtake the reaper and the treader of grapes, the sower of seed. The mountains will drip with sweet wine, with which all the hills will flow.” Amos 9:13
In times of darkness, it’s important to remember that brighter days are coming. I am sure God has spoken to you before, and He is reminding you again that “weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning” (Psalm 30:5). God has always been a God of hope, and he never fails to keep his promises. This is something we can hold onto amid trials and heartache.
One of the most famous examples is from the book of Amos. God promises that despite the darkness of the present moment, he has a plan for a glorious future: “I will restore the fortunes of my people Israel, and they will rebuild the ruined cities and live in them. They will plant vineyards and drink their wine; they will make gardens and eat their fruit. I will plant them in their land, and they will never again be uprooted from the land I have given them” (Amos 9:14-15). The Bible also assures us that God is with us even in the darkest of moments.
Psalm 23:4 says, “Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me,”
While we may not always see the evidence of it in our lives, we can be confident that the brighter days are coming. God has never failed to keep his promises, and he will not start now. We can hold onto this hope amid our trials, and we can be assured that God is with us, even in the darkest of moments. It can be hard to see the silver lining when something bad happens. But when you read Psalm 30:5, you can be reminded that joy comes with the morning even though weeping may last through the night.
You can find hope in God’s word no matter what life throws your way. When you’re feeling down, remember that God promises joy will come in the morning. So start planning for the best possible future by donning your rose-colored glasses. I am so excited about the future that God has planned for us! The brighter days are coming, and we can’t wait to see what He has in store for us. Amen. “Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good; His loving devotion endures forever.” Psalm 118:1
1. Oh Lord Jesus, thank you for being my savior and my redeemer. Thank you for giving me the strength to overcome my fears and weaknesses; thank you for making me strong.
2. May the blood of Jesus wipe away your tears, failure, and every issue that oppresses you from the past to this moment
