Your Mourning Will Be Turned Into Dancing!

Friday, August 2, 2013 (4:00 am)

by George Whitten, Editor of Worthy Devotions

Psalms 30:11-12 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever.

This is one of my favorite promises in the Bible — that God turns mourning into dancing! He takes away the anguish of being clothed in sadness and replaces it with gladness. However, notice what God doesn't do — simply stop your mourning and make it disappear. No, He transforms it…into joy! He turns your sorrow into gladness. He takes your failure and creates success! We serve an awesome and mighty God, who says, "all things work together for good to them that love Him, and to those who are the called according to His purpose." (Romans 8:28)

Let's take time to dwell on this promise. Our sorrows, disappointments, tragedies and failures are very real — but they are also "raw material" for a divine transformation that our Lord will accomplish in His time for His glory. And we WILL dance! God will do it. Our part is simply to wait…believe…and cling tightly to this wonderful promise!

    How great is our God. Tomorrow is the 1 year anniversary of my oldest son's death. Today as I sought God for healing of this grief, I understood that nothing I can do will bring relief. It must come by the Holy Spirit to my Spirit. As I researched scripture, I came upon this post. My answer! My encouragement. Thank you.
