Open Heavens For TEENS: Sunday 3 September 2017 by Pastor Adeboye - Joy Cometh In The Morning

Topic: Joy Cometh In The Morning [Sunday 3, September 2017]

Memorise: “For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.” – Psalms 30:5

Read: Psalms 30:1-5

1 I will extol thee, O LORD; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over me.

2 O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou hast healed me.

3 O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from the grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.

4 Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

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

Bible In One Year: Ezekiel 28-30. Hymn: Sing Hymn 11


The Bible uses joy both as a feeling and an action. Joy as a feeling is called forth by well-being, success, or good fortune. A person automatically experiences joy as a result of certain favourable circumstances. For example in Matthew 18:13, the shepherd had a feeling of joy when he found bus lost sheep. In Luke 13:17, the multitude was joyful when Jesus healed a Jewish woman whom Satan had bound for 18 years. All these confirm joy as a feeling.

On the other hand, joy as an action is the kind of joy that the Scripture commands and it can be experienced no matter how a person feels; the Bible calls it the joy of the Lord. The coming of joy in the morning is such a powerful concept considering what night and morning stand for. Night symbolizes a period of darkness, evil, insecurity, and uncertainty. The morning light uncovers events of the night and provides an opportunity for renewed daily activity. I therefore decree; despite what you may be passing through, your hour of darkness will soon pass away, and joy will become your permanent companion in Jesus’ Name.

Prayer Point: Father, please let there be a new dawn of joy, peace and prosperity in my life in Jesus’ Name.
