As I began to worship, I heard the tears of many people crying. Tears of people desiring to give up, tears of not understanding, tears of wondering why, tears of frustration, tears of God what are you doing, tears of wanting to know more details, tears of okay Father, okay I’m in the new. Then I began to hear the heart of God say, “I’m not going to allow you to cry about some things anymore, I’m wiping them all away.” God is wiping away the inconsolable tears, the tears of hopelessness, and the tears of grieving over the past.
Although you’ve cried, God is giving you joy today! Everlasting joy is upon your head. (Isaiah 51:11) They that sow in tears shall reap in joy. (Psalm 126:5)
I hear the Lord saying, “I’m drying your tears.” These are the tears that you can’t wipe with a tissue, handkerchief, or specialized cloth. Only the Father can wipe these tears. “…and God shall wipe away all your tears.” (Revelations 21:4) Tears of depression, tears of recession, tears of frustration, and tears of relations. God says, “I’m not going to let you cry about that anymore, I wiped it away.” He just wants us to comply. You will try to return to that emotion, the place of death in your mind but it will not be accessible. God has turned your tear ducts into Joy ducts. You’re going to start laughing about what you’ve been crying about. You’re going to start singing over what you’ve been grieving over. You’re not going to cry about some things anymore, because I wiped them all away.
Laugh at the enemy. The Lord sits in the heavens and he laughs his enemies into derision. (Psalm 2:4) Declare over yourself today, “I’m not going to cry about that anymore.” Regardless what time of day it is, it is morning time in your spirit, when you’re awakened by God. God turned your tears of sorrow into tears of joy. He’s not just giving you joy, He is your Joy. The joy of the Lord is your Strength. (Nehemiah 8:10) We enter into the joy of your rest. The joy of the Lord is your stronghold, your defense, your fortress, and your strength. In your joy we prevail. Wake up to joy! Wake up to joy! Come out of the old dead jeans and those old routines. Let God’s joy ring. Let the hills and the mountains burst forth into Joy. See the hills and the mountains in your life bursting forth into joy! Neither the times, materials, nor circumstances are your joy but God is your joy!
I will extol you O Lord for you have lifted me up and hast not made my foes rejoice over me. O Lord my God, I cried to You, and You healed me. O Lord, you have brought my soul, my mind, my will, my emotions from the grave/places of death. You have kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit. Sing to the Lord, O you his saints of his, and give thanks while remembering his holiness. For his anger endures for a moment; his favor is for a lifetime, weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning. (Psalms 30:1-5)
It’s a.m. in your spirit. It’s time to start living and not just existing.
Prophetic application: Like David, cry out to the Lord. Pour your heart on him about the things that really concern you and ask him to help you. God sees your tears, as worship. Pour your tears on him. as he turns your tears into joy, your mourning into dancing, and your water into wine.
