He Can Turn Your Mourning Into Dancing

“You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, 12 To the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give thanks to You forever” (Ps. 30:11-12).

Is this not powerful for us? If you apply that to your life, God is literally saying, He can turn your mourning into dancing. Mourning is a sad thing. It’s a condition, and it’s got real factual evidence supporting it. You don’t mourn over nothing; something has to happen for you to mourn. But God can turn real mourning, which is a real condition, into dancing. That’s quite a claim and only God can back that up. I tell you, God can do it, and if you’ll let Him, He can turn your mourning into dancing. We can enjoy this blessing of the Lord for His children; and this means we must get rid of the sorrows in our lives and move on in life. God takes away the mourning of his people; and what does he give them instead of it? Dancing. You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; He makes our hearts to dance at the mention of His name.

He turns our mourning into dancing when we approach Him in prayer, and a great deal more than that. You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness. He takes off our sackcloth. That is good. What a delight to be gotten rid of your mourning and be replaced with dancing and joy! He clothes us with gladness. Not an ordinary clothe but His royal and divine gladness. Far, far better than the most expensive designer clothe you can find in this world or in any designer shop in any country on planet earth. You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness; your sackcloth is a loose one, it will soon come off. You can move on with your life. God will put off the clothes of mourning, disappointment, regret and replace them with joy. Your sorrow will turn to joy. Joy is the true replacement of your sorrow. We have every reason to rejoice. The joy of the Lord is your strength. You can move on with your life no matter what has happened.
