Stepping Up: Week 3 - Day 3

Day 3 - To Laugh Again

Psalm 126
1 When the LORD restored his exiles to Jerusalem, it was like a dream!

2 We were filled with laughter, and we sang for joy. And the other nations said, "What amazing things the LORD has done for them."
3 Yes, the LORD has done amazing things for us! What joy!
4 Restore our fortunes, LORD, as streams renew the desert.
5 Those who plant in tears will harvest with shouts of joy.
6 They weep as they go to plant their seed, but they sing as they return with the harvest.

This Psalm has pivot point in verse 4.  The first part of the Psalm is a remembrance of the amazing things the Lord had done.

The first part of Verse 4 in the Message translation says "And now God, do it again"

The final verses show that whatever place we are in right now, no matter how bad we are hurting and how many tears we are shedding that if we are in the Word, God will restore us and fill us with joy.  We will again be amazed at the wonderful and amazing things he has done.
