Psalms 126:1


The Bible says in Psalm 126:1-2, “When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.[2] Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The LORD hath done great things for them.” The Lord can change things. You might be suffering a lot now, but God can turn the tables. He can turn it all around. That is one of the benefits of being a Christian. We never know what the Lord might do to bless our lives. Notice the words “dream,” “laughter, “singing.” Starting with the forgiveness of sins, the following will be true for every Christian, “The LORD hath done great things for them.” Do you like singing? Do you like laughter? Do you like dreaming wonderful dreams, then give your heart to Christ and you will have all these things and more.


The Bible says in Psalm 126:3-4, “The LORD hath done great things for us; whereof we are glad.[4] Turn again our captivity, O LORD, as the streams in the south.” This is a believer saying, “Yes, the Lord has blessed me a lot, but I will gladly take even more if He will give it.” I will gladly take all those free gifts: as many as He is willing to give me. By the way, the Lord has an unlimited supply. He is the great giver. There is even more that you might receive from Him about His love, His presence, and His power, and everything else.  


The Bible says in Psalm 126:5-6, “They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.[6] He that goeth forth and weepeth, bearing precious seed, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him.” The Lord knows we weep because of the sorrows that life has brought our way. There will be sorrows. It will not all be laughing and singing. What do you do when a time of sorrow has come into your life? Yes, you will cry; but do not let that stop you. Keep serving the Lord no matter what. Keep sowing the seed of the Gospel. If you are a preacher, keep preaching the Word. If you are not a preacher, then keep helping a preacher by your prayers and by joining in with the congregation of the righteous. If you keep sowing, your sorrows will end in rejoicing. He that endures to the end shall be saved, Jesus said. In other words, he that endures his sorrows until the sorrows are over will win the victory.
