You Will Laugh!
Job 8:21 NKJV "He will yet fill your mouth with laughing, and your lips with rejoicing."
Remember The Rich Also Cry? It was a telenovela that was aired in the 90's here in Nigeria, though originally produced in 1979. The point I'm trying to make is that both the rich and the poor have problems! Just that the kind of problems might be different. We all have needs; there are issues that make us worried; there are challenges that money cannot solve, and they rob us of our joy and happiness. But God is a Restorer! Hallelujah!
Imagine being married and unable to give birth to children for over forty years! That's a very long time. Sarah must have soaked her pillow with tears countless times. Her maid, Hagar, even made matters worse by despising her, after she had Ishmael. But thank God! He visited Sarah, and she had her own child! And Sarah said, “God has made me laugh, and all who hear will laugh with me.” She also said, “Who would have said to Abraham that Sarah would nurse children? For I have borne him a son in his old age.” Hallelujah!
I prophesy to you in the name of Jesus, that you will laugh! I heard about people who have lost their jobs as a result of the current economic situation; you will laugh again! Weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning! Those who sow in tears will reap with joy! He will yet fill your mouth with laughing, and your lips with rejoicing! Cheer up, God is already at work!
