Psalm 126:5, “Those who sow in tears will reap with songs of joy.”
Life is unpredictable. We plan for things and prepare for future but sometimes the things go the way we had never anticipated. All of us have to go through the season of sowing in tears but the word encourages us by the message that those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy.
Jesus said in John, “The world make you suffer but be brave I have defeated the world.” We can’t remain victorious in our own strength and might but with the power of the Lord all things are possible. If we confess this word of victory that Jesus has defeated the world and we are in Christ, we become partakers in Jesus earned victory. Bible says that justification is by heart and salvation is by mouth. We not only need to believe on this verse but speak it out-loud to remain victorious in Christ.
God makes us go through different seasons by his Holy Spirit to become powerful in Spirit. We may never know the Lord in all His fullness if we remain at one place in our spiritual journey. God has decided the places and seasons where we will be at a specific time in our spiritual journey. Bible says, “In Him we live and move and have our being.” God is our dwelling place and wherever He takes us, we could move ahead with full assurance that we are never away from His divine protection since we always move in Him as His offspring.
Sometimes we go from one mountain of success to another, other times it seems that life is not moving at the pace we wanted. Whatever happens on this earth happens for a reason and if we have committed our lives into the hands of our Lord and Saviour, we know that we will be see ourselves successful in the Lord regardless of what we see right now.
Keep sowing the seed even though it takes tears to sow them. Keep sowing the seed even though you don’t feel like sowing them. For soon you will gather the harvest with songs of joy.
