You have turned my mourning into dancing; you have loosed my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness. Psalm 30:11
Psalm 30 is a narrative of how David had become prideful and thought that he was indestructible. God turned his face from him. David realized it and called out for help. He was mourning over the loss of God. When he cried out for help the Lord answered him and turned his mourning into dancing.
For David, one cry instantaneously changed his circumstance and relationship with God.
The lesson for us as believers is not to underestimate what crying out to God can do. If you are going through a tough time today and need your circumstance and/or relationship with God to change, cry out! He may just turn your mourning into dancing!
It is important to remember that if YOU don't change your habits, mentality, and old ways of doing things you will be right back where you were.
