“For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life:
weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.”

We read this single verse of scripture that is found in the thirtieth psalm. This psalm is written at the time of dedication for the temple of Solomon, David’s son.The temple was built through an endeavor that began with David, but was passed to Solomon through God (1 Chronicles 28:3-6). As we look through the scriptures, we see the writer declaring praise to God for all that He has done. It is in the fifth verse of the psalm that the writer declares that the Lord, even in anger, is full of mercy, favor, and life toward His children. His anger endures but for a moment, but joy truly comes in the morning.Through our daily life, I encourage you to remember the goodness of God. It is His goodness that leads us to repentance and salvation (Romans 2:4). His anger endures for a moment, but He fills us with joy and peace every morning.
