“Wailing Into Dancing”
You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy, that my heart may sing your praises and not be silent. Lord my God, I will praise you forever. Psalm 30:11-12
Have you ever been in situations that seem HOPELESS, and there seems to be NO WAY of changing the things that have put you into those situations? Have you sinned against God, and felt like He has given up on you? That maybe His LOVE, MERCY and FORGIVENESS has dissipated from you? Well, PRAISE GOD, His LOVE is UNFAILING, His MERCY is ABUNDANT, and His FORGIVENESS is ETERNAL.
King David had sinned against God, on more than one occasion and this Psalm is a song for the dedication of the temple. It describes how God DELIVERED David from situations that seemed HOPELESS and with NO WAY to make things better. BUT, God gave David HOPE and A WAY to make CHANGES in his bleak situations. David says: “For His anger lasts only a moment, but His favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.”
God CHANGED David’s WAILING into DANCING, David was JUMPING with JOY, because God REMOVED his SACKCLOTH (a garment worn, when in mourning), and CLOTHED him with JOY. So much so that David could NOT be SILENT, but is INTENT on PRAISING GOD FOREVER. Sometimes when God DELIVERS us from HOPELESS situations that seems to provide NO WAY out, we FORGET to OFFER up THANKSGIVING and PRAISES to Him for ALL He has done.
If you are a TRUE BELIEVER, you SHOULD have PRAISES in your HEART and on your LIPS CONTINUALLY, because He has made a WAY for us to be DELIVERED from our sins and from an ETERNITY in Hell, with all its HORRORS. A HOPELESS situation with NO WAY of ESCAPE.
However, if you have NOT given your HEART and LIFE to God, then you are DOOMED to an ETERNITY in Hell with NO WAY of ESCAPE, unless you TURN AWAY FROM your sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO God, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART, CONFESSING your sins to Him, and asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING, with ALL your HEART, that Jesus died for YOU, and is ALIVE in Heaven, making intercession for you, before God. Then ACCEPT His gift of SALVATION, and be DELIVERED from a HOPELESS SITUATION by letting God make a WAY for YOU to ESCAPE HELL and GAIN HEAVEN. Do this NOW, while you still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
