"God's word is pure, and he is a shield to those who put their trust in him." Proverbs 30:5
When I'm faced with a hurdle in life, I remind myself that every challenge has a deadline. Every problem, in fact, expires the day it arises for those who believe. The lifespan of any challenge before me ends when the sun sets and I go to bed. This is because the Lord's Spirit states in Psalm 30:5:
“For his wrath lasts but a moment; life is in his favor: sorrow may last a night, but joy comes in the morning.”
I have faith in what the text says because every word of God is pure, and He is a shield to those who put their trust in Him (Proverbs 30:5).
Peter is one of the people who has experienced joy when he woke up in the morning. He was in prison awaiting execution one night and awoke the next morning as a free man.
Our God is amazing! When you consider that Peter slept between two soldiers, held by chains, the night before his planned execution, his story becomes even more incredible. There were also prison keepers standing over the prison entrance to make sure he didn't get out, but it was all for naught. In Jesus' Name, I declare that the Almighty God will deliver you from the clutches of your oppressors today.
One thing we may take away from this story is Peter's faith in God. This was why, in the face of impending death, he could sleep. “Let me sleep tonight,” Peter appeared to plead, “because by the time the day breaks, my delight will be complete.” The Lord sent an angel to rescue him in the middle of the night as he slept, bringing him into his wonderful dawn. According to Acts 12:11,
“And when Peter had recovered his senses, he replied, Now I know for a certainty that the LORD hath sent his angel, and has spared me from Herod's hand, and from all the anticipation of the Jews.”
Even though the early Church's brethren were in anguish for Peter that fatal night, they rejoiced when they awoke to see Peter standing at the door of the spot where they gathered to pray. Psalm 126:1 states, "When the LORD turned again the captive of Zion, we were like them that dream."
In Jesus' Name, I decree that your morning of Joy has arrived, and that your opponents' expectations will be cut short.
Prayer: Father, in Jesus' name, I receive a joyful morning today.
