How to be Joyful in Hard Times [Revelation 21:4 Daily Devotional]

 

Verse image for Nick Vogel's How to be Joyful in Hard Times Devotional on Revelation 21:4

“‘He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

– ‭‭Revelation‬ ‭21:4‬‬‬

Observations:

This verse is talking about life after death specifically. We can expect a release from all of our pain, sadness, sickness, and weakness. All of those things pass away through Jesus’ sacrifice.

Applications:

While this verse is specific to the afterlife, it’s important for us to embrace these things now. We’ll experience them in their fullness one day, but they’re still available to us today. Give your fears, tears, sadness, and pain to the Lord and watch him turn them all into joy. It’s not easy breaking out of our own minds and allowing ourselves to be joyful in hard times, but we can do that by relying on God, praying, and worshipping him.

Prayer:

Thank you for the promise of the afterlife, which is a gift from you. Help me to give you all the things that bring me down, and give me joy that’s everlasting. It’s in Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
