In the middle of Job’s darkest hour, when he was the most discouraged and didn’t think it would ever work out, God said to him in Job 8:21, “I will fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy.” God is saying to you what He said to Job. Joy is coming, breakthroughs are coming, healing is coming, promotion is coming.
God is about to fill your mouth with laughter. He’s going to do something so amazing, so extraordinary, you’ll be so overwhelmed, so grateful that all you can do is laugh. Your mourning is going to be turned to dancing, your sorrow turned to joy.
There are times God will allow us to go through a painful season so that He can birth something new on the inside. Paul said in 2 Corinthians 1:4, “God, who comforts us in our time of trouble so we can comfort those in need with the comfort we have received.” If you go through something you don’t understand, instead of getting upset, “God, why me?” Have a new perspective.
God allowed that to happen because He trusts you. He knows He can count on you to take the same comfort, the same healing, the same encouragement that helped you overcome and share it with others.
