A few days ago I found $126.00 folded up in the street. It was such an exceptionally windy day that I couldn’t understand how this money didn’t blow away. As “spiritually inquisitive” as I am, I knew that there was a deeper meaning behind it and that God was up to something. When I went home I looked up Psalm 126. The Holy Spirit immediately gave me this word. Those of you who have been sowing in tears for such a long time are about to reap in joy.
The Lord says,
“The time of weeping is coming to an end, and a time of rejoicing will begin. For those of you who have been burdened for so long, your mouths will surely be filled with laughter, and your tongues with songs of joy. I am about to release you from the weights and the cares that have been weighing you down. I am releasing you from the burdens and the hardships that you have encountered. You will learn how to make the adversity drive you deeper into your purpose and destiny rather than bring you into despair. Don’t allow discouraging thoughts to imprison you any longer, but allow Me to turn everything around for good. You have not been created to carry burdens but I have created you to be a carrier of My glory. As you spend time in My presence allow it to overtake you and let My joy be your strength.
As you continue to press in and take Me for My word even through difficult times, you will soon encounter this time of rejoicing. I will release you from the hurtful memories from the past that brought pain and sorrow. I will set you free from the things that war against your soul that brought fear and confusion. This is a time of refreshing to those of you who have been weary. Don’t allow anything to restrain you from this joy set before you. Don’t allow anything to hinder you from receiving all that is available to you. Allow Me to fill you with this joy and peace. Allow Me to bring comfort to your soul. I will give you beauty for ashes and the oil of joy for mourning so that you will live in peace and victory . As you cast your cares on Me and trust Me, I will bring prosperity and contentment in all areas back into your life,”
says the Lord.
“You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore” Psalm 16:11.
“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” Psalm 30:11-12.
“When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dreamed. Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, “The Lord has done great things for them.” The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. Restore our fortunes, Lord, like streams in the Negev. Those who sow with tears will reap with songs of joy. Those who go out weeping, carrying seed to sow, will return with songs of joy, carrying sheaves with them” Psalm 126.
