Joy Comes in the Morning
"Sing praises to the Lord, O you his saints, and give thanks to his holy name. For his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes in the morning."
We meet every qualification to deserve the eternal wrath of God on us, and condemnation in hell. In short, Christ absorbed his Father's anger for us on the cross. Our heavenly Father now looks at us in utter delight in every moment, because He sees his perfect Son united to our hearts by faith, clothing us with every favorable thing. All of grace.
