So many people in the Bible days had gone through sorrow as a result of what the enemy had done, some had sorrow to death, because of no deliverance John 15:5, Hosea 4:6, John 8:32, Psalm 50:15, My assurance for you today is that your sorrows shall be turned to Joy.
For better insight, we shall consider the the message under the following subheadings.
1. EXAMPLES OF THOSE WHO THE LORD TURNED THEIR SORROWS TO JOY.
Their are so many people in the Bible days whom the Lord because of His mercies turned their sorrow to joy Lamentation 3:22; 2 Peter 3:9; Isaiah 61:1. All those who came to Him in tears and sorrow received complete freedom (Psalm 34:6; Esther 9:22; Psalm 30:11; Psalm 137:1; Exodus13:7; Psalm 126:1; Psalm 40:1-2).
God will turn your sorrows to Joy. And in this programme your sorrow must be turned to joy, the Lord will establish your going in Jesus Name, in the new testament the Lord also delivered people from their sorrows was turn to joy Mathew:9:1-2, 6; Mathew:15:30; Mathew 12:15; Even in the present day, He is still turning Sorrows to Joy, Hebrew 13:8; Malachi 3:6.
POINT:2:THE FACT THAT OUR SORROW MUST BE TURNED TO JOY.
The Lord who did it in time past is ever ready to do it again, because His compassion failet not, today He will show you compassion, He will touch you today in Jesus' Name. The reason why so many people is suffering today is as a result of sin. As you repent today and do away with sin the Lord will show you mercy For sinners and backsliders to be saved, they must confess their sins and repent of them, ask Jesus Christ to come into their lives and go on to ask for other experience that makes for joy, and they shall be totally free in Jesus' Name (Romans 3:23; 6:23; 1st John 3:8-9;1st John 5:17a; John 10:10; John 6:36; Proverb 28:13; Mathew 6:33; Romans 10:13)
