To understand a moment we must have an eternal perspective. You may be going through something painful that seems like it will never end. You may find little comfort in the idea that “weeping may endure for a night”, because you’ve wept for so long now. Have faith through your pain that God’s Word is true. He does not see time as we see time. In light of eternity our entire lives are only a moment. God is able to give you joy and peace to endure the hardships of this life. He knows your pain and He’s able to comfort you. That’s not all. There will come a time when He will wipe away the tears. A time when He will surround you with love and goodness that cannot be taken from you. Let His promises fill you with hope. No matter what sufferings we experience in this life they will not be worthy of consideration in the next. Faith in what’s to come is what gives us joy for whatever comes today.
For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.(Psalm 30:5)
