Rejoicing Will Come

Philippians 4:10 KJV 1900
10 But I rejoiced in the Lord greatly, that now at the last your care of me hath flourished again; wherein ye were also careful, but ye lacked opportunity.
WE all experience heartache and disappointment.
It seems like the end of the road
There is no use of going on
What good can come out of this
Heartache - Emotional pain or distress; sorrow; grief; anguish.

Paul had experienced heartache
look!
2 Corinthians 11:24–28 KJV 1900
24 Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one. 25 Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep; 26 In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; 27 In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness. 28 Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all the churches.
But in the end he rejoiced!
romans 12:
Romans 12:15 KJV 1900
15 Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.
Romans 12:5 KJV 1900
5 So we, being many, are one body in Christ, and every one members one of another.
romans 12.1
Philippians 4:4 KJV 1900
4 Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.
1 Thessalonians 5:16 KJV 1900
16 Rejoice evermore.
Exploring Ephesians & Philippians: An Expository Commentary (1) Paul Acknowledged the Final Coming of the Philippians’ Gift (4:10a)

In Paul’s day people under arrest were not cared for by the state. It was up to the prisoners themselves to see that their physical needs were met. Paul had no visible means of support. He was cast wholly on the Lord and hence on the Lord’s people.

The Lord’s people in Philippi had sent Paul a financial gift. (Their thoughtfulness of him is a good example of positive thinking!) Evidently this gift was not their first, for the apostle said their care of him had “flourished again

Paul had an opportunity to rejoice after all the mess.
Exploring Ephesians & Philippians: An Expository Commentary (1) Paul Acknowledged the Final Coming of the Philippians’ Gift (4:10a)

The word translated “hath flourished again” can also be rendered “blossomed out” or “revived.” The original word suggests a sudden, spontaneous, natural flowering of the Philippians’ love for Paul. He was reminded of the thought behind the gift and it touched a responsive chord of praise in his soul. “I rejoiced in the Lord greatly,” he told them. Paul’s rejoicing was always in the Lord

I Choose Thankfulness - Philippians 4:11-12

Philippians 4:11–12 KJV 1900
11 Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. 12 I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.
Philippians 4.
Job 13:15 KJV 1900
15 Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: But I will maintain mine own ways before him.
Hosea 2:15 KJV 1900
15 And I will give her her vineyards from thence, And the valley of Achor for a door of hope: And she shall sing there, as in the days of her youth, And as in the day when she came up out of the land of Egypt.
Hos
Thankfulness does not come naturally to any of us.  Thankfulness is a choice, even when we don’t feel thankful. 
I would say that at the time that we feel most like not giving thanks to God because of our shattered heart, it is the very time to choose to be thankful.
 Job wrote one of the most famous statements in the Bible while he suffered the loss of his family and all of his possessions and health and yet managed to say, even if
Job 13:15 KJV 1900
15 Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him: But I will maintain mine own ways before him.
job
Just as God promised the nation of Israel that Choose Choose Thankfulness
Paul so he had to learn how to be content, meaning it didn’t come naturally.  When you choose thankfulness, you are learning how to be content in whatever state you find yourself.

II Consider Eternity -

Philippians 4:20 KJV 1900
20 Now unto God and our Father be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
This life is short ! We need to stop living for the presernt.
2 Corinthians 4:18 KJV 1900
18 While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.
James 4:14 KJV 1900
14 Whereas ye know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapour, that appeareth for a little time, and then vanisheth away.
James 4:4 KJV 1900
4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.
When we think about eternity and this life, which is only a vapor, we can place this tiny speck of time up against eternity and see just how inconsequential it is compared to eternity.
Our finite minds cannot even comprehend what eternity is, therefore try to place today’s heartbreak up against the linear line of eternity and you’d be hard pressed to even see it.
Psalm 30:5 KJV 1900
5 For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: Weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.
Ecclesiastes 3:1–4 KJV 1900
1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven: 2 A time to be born, and a time to die; A time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted; 3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; A time to break down, and a time to build up; 4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; A time to mourn, and a time to dance;
Here is the true scale; take the tiniest piece of dust you can find and place it on one side of the scales and then place all matter of the entire universe and you’ll get the proper perspective on today versus eternity.
Illustration - the edge of the universe is 28 billion light years away! travelling at 186,000 miles/sec it would take 28 billion years to get there.
7 1/2 times around the world in one second.
Yes, it does hurt but as the psalmist wrote of God’s loving discipline, “For his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning” ().  Here is the true scale; take the tiniest piece of dust you can find and place it on one side of the scales and then place all matter of the entire universe and you’ll get the proper perspective on today versus eternity.
1 Peter 1:6–7 KJV 1900
6 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: 7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:

Rejoicing Will come when : Pour out Your heart

III Pour Out Your Heart -

Philippians 4:6 KJV 1900
6 Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.
You have been crushed.
You are hurt
You are disappointed
In the seven verse from , we drew five reasons it is wise to pour out our hearts to God.
It is about a woman who poured out her heart to everyone but God. And it is about the change God worked in her when she poured out her heart to Him.
As a cross reference, we looked at —another account of someone who poured out his heart to God. This time, it was David in a cave.
In the seven verse from , we drew five reasons it is wise to pour out our hearts to God.
A.Because God hears
I cried unto the LORD with my voice; with my voice unto the LORD did I make my supplication. I poured out my complaint before him; I shewed before him my trouble.—verses 1–2
Even when you pour out your heart to a friend, she may or may not accurately interpret the cry of your soul. God always hears, always understands, always listens with compassion.
B. Because God knows
When my spirit was overwhelmed within me, then thou knewest my path.—verse 3
We see endless cycles of overwhelming pain. God sees our experience differently—He sees a path. A way out. A way forward. A journey.
C. Because God cares
In the way wherein I walked have they privily laid a snare for me. I looked on my right hand, and beheld, but there was no man that would know me: refuge failed me; no man cared for my soul.—verse 4
Frankly, friends have limits. They can only bear the weight of your heart so long. But God cares indefinitely. When no one else understands or cares, He does. And His compassion is new every morning.
Furthermore, God is our refuge.
I cried unto thee, O LORD: I said, Thou art my refuge and my portion in the land of the living.—verse 5
He invites us to pour our hearts out to Him. But like Joseph Scriven noted, we often pass up on the opportunity.
O what peace we often forfeit, O what needless pain we bear, All because we do not carry Everything to God in prayer.
D.Because God’s timing is perfect
Attend unto my cry; for I am brought very low: deliver me from my persecutors; for they are stronger than I.—verse 6
David wrote this Psalm while hiding from Saul. But he wasn’t hiding from Saul forever. God did deliver David, and it was in God’s perfect timing—for David, for Israel, for larger purposes beyond anyone’s understanding.
E. Because God can change…me!
Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name: the righteous shall compass me about; for thou shalt deal bountifully with me.—verse 7
From the depths of the cave, David didn’t just pray, “Bring me and my army out of here.” He prayed, “Bring my soul out of prison, that I may praise thy name.”
We usually pray for God to free us from our circumstances, caring little about the prisons of our souls. But what if God wants to deliver us from self more than we want deliverance from our situation?
What if we prayed, “Change my circumstances, but first change me!”
Do you have an overwhelmed heart? Pour it out to God.
Interestingly, Hannah’s name means “grace.” When she poured out her soul to the Lord, He poured in His grace. The lady we see in is a changed woman from the chapter previous.
Hannah, intent on one desire alone—having a son—was transformed into a lady who freely gave that son to God…and joyfully worshiped Him as she did it.
God granted Hannah’s request, but the process of prayer—pouring out her soul to God—changed her. What she received wasn’t as big as what she found—the faithful sufficiency of God!
Do you have an overwhelmed heart? Pour it out to God.
He hears, understands, cares, is sovereign, and can change you even as He works in your situation.

One of the best ways to deal with a broken heart is to help those who have the same problem.  For some, it might be a one hour visitation just to visit with someone in a nursing home, it might be writing a letter to a missionary to encourage them, or it could be just offering to help somebody that you know that needs help.  Maybe you could invite them out to dinner or invite them to your home for a meal.  It might be filling in at the church nursery, volunteer to be a Sunday school teacher substitute, or just go up to the pastor and ask him. Maybe he needs someone to help with the church outreach or sound technician.  God has placed each and every member of the Body to encourage, build up, and edify the church of Jesus Christ. If you’re a Christian, Jesus has a role for you in His church and in the community or He would have never saved you.

IV Use Your Pain to Minister-

Philippians 4:14 KJV 1900
14 Notwithstanding ye have well done, that ye did communicate with my affliction.
Communicate - shared in my distress ; had fellowship in my suffering;
2 Corinthians 1:4 KJV 1900
4 Who comforteth us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.
2 Corinthians 7:6 KJV 1900
6 Nevertheless God, that comforteth those that are cast down, comforted us by the coming of Titus;
2 cor
Some people’s greatest ministries are birthed out of great suffering so use your heartache as a means to comfort others who have been through similar situations. 
Rejoicing Will come when : Choose thankfulness
Rejoicing Will come when : Consider eternity
If you have read the Book of Revelation, you might have a hint of what’s to come, but perhaps the greatest thing to come is that “the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God” () and we “will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads” ().  Not only that, if that weren’t great enough, God Himself, who is now “with them” “will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away” (). Today is sorrow; tomorrow infinite joy that no one can imagine. That of that brilliant eternity when “those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever” ().

Failure is not Final

We shouldn’t take heartbreak personally. 
A preacher was crushed because a girl that he really wanted to marry was not interested
Romans 8:28 KJV 1900
28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
Jeremiah 29:11 KJV 1900
11 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.
jer 2

What Am I asking you to Know?

Conclusion

I think everyone will go through a period of sadness in their lives when their heart is broken and life seems hopeless but we can choose to be thankful for what we do have and learn to be content like Paul did.  We can think about the time without end with  Christ we’ll enjoy since this life’s but a vapor.  We can pour out our hearts and tears before God because He can take it.  We can find someone who needs our help which can take our eyes off of our own problems.  We can use our pain toward a ministry of others who are hurting.  We can dwell on the eternal home in the kingdom and the assurance of being with God.  And finally, we can think about all of the Bible characters that turned failure into victory because God is still the God of the impossible.

In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need” () so he had to learn how to be content, meaning it didn’t come naturally.  When you choose thankfulness, you are learning how to be content in whatever state you find yourself.

Consider Eternity

When we think about eternity and this life, which is only a vapor, we can place this tiny speck of time up against eternity and see just how inconsequential it is compared to eternity. James wrote “you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes” (). Our finite minds cannot even comprehend what eternity is, therefore try to place today’s heartbreak up against the linear line of eternity and you’d be hard pressed to even see it. Yes, it does hurt but as the psalmist wrote of God’s loving discipline, “For his anger is but for a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime.

Pour out your Heart

When there is nothing more but to pour out your heart, then just do it.  God can take it.  Just tell Him about what has been done to your heart, how you’ve been crushed, but the psalmist says “The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit” ().  It is God alone Who “heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds” () and “is near to all who call on him” ().  Now you must read it and believe it for God said it and God cannot lie (; ).

Find Someone to Help

One of the best ways to deal with a broken heart is to help those who have the same problem.  For some, it might be a one hour visitation just to visit with someone in a nursing home, it might be writing a letter to a missionary to encourage them, or it could be just offering to help somebody that you know that needs help.  Maybe you could invite them out to dinner or invite them to your home for a meal.  It might be filling in at the church nursery, volunteer to be a Sunday school teacher substitute, or just go up to the pastor and ask him.

Some people’s greatest ministries are birthed out of great suffering so use your heartache as a means to comfort others who have been through similar situations.  Paul writes about the God “who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God” () like for Paul it was “God, who comforts the downcast, comforted us by the coming of Titus” () so God will comfort us by sending others and why not you?  There is no reason for suffering without purpose because God never wastes anything He permits; even suffering.

Think of Your Inheritance

If you have read the Book of Revelation, you might have a hint of what’s to come, but perhaps the greatest thing to come is that “the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God” () and we “will see his face, and his name will be on their foreheads” ().  Not only that, if that weren’t great enough, God Himself, who is now “with them” “will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away” (). Today is sorrow; tomorrow infinite joy that no one can imagine. That of that brilliant eternity when “those who turn many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever” ().

Failure is not Final

We shouldn’t take heartbreak personally.  I know in my own life that I was crushed because a girl that I really wanted to marry was not interested in me, but now, looking back so many years later, I see that God said “No” to her because “There’s someone better for you” and that turned out to be the case. The loneliest marriages in the world are those where someone is married to someone but were deceived and found out that they were not at all who they said they were or acted the way that they really were.  Paul wrote that “we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose” () and even though it might not feel good at the time, God sees the end from the beginning and knows how our decisions would turn out to harm us and not to help us.  Jeremiah was writing to the exiles of Judah when he wrote “I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope” () but this could just as well apply to the believer who’s had their heart shattered. Failure is not final and in fact it might be a turning point toward something far greater.

Conclusion

I think everyone will go through a period of sadness in their lives when their heart is broken and life seems hopeless but we can choose to be thankful for what we do have and learn to be content like Paul did.  We can think about the time without end with  Christ we’ll enjoy since this life’s but a vapor.  We can pour out our hearts and tears before God because He can take it.  We can find someone who needs our help which can take our eyes off of our own problems.  We can use our pain toward a ministry of others who are hurting.  We can dwell on the eternal home in the kingdom and the assurance of being with God.  And finally, we can think about all of the Bible characters that turned failure into victory because God is still the God of the impossible.
