So what exactly is this joy? This gift that comes from the Lord?
"You will make known to me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; In Your right hand there are pleasures forever." Psalm 16:11
There was a time in my life when I had no joy. Not a surprise really because I also didn't have God in my life. It was a time of confusion, despair, and hopelessness. We weren't created to live this life without our Creator. And even though He made us with a free will His desire is for us to have a relationship with Him. I am always in awe at how God led me right into His embrace. He is gentle and He is faithful and He is loving!
Now I can honestly say I have joy in my life. This gift of joy is life giving. God is love and His gifts are endless, not only in the many gifts He gives, but He keeps on giving and giving for your entire life time! Let Him be your nutrition through His daily bread and living water.
The joy of the Lord is my strength!Joy is what gets us through difficult times. So, let us make certain we are strong in the Lord by reading His Word daily, studying the Bible and asking Him to reveal the truth to us. We need to fill up on His bread every day, worshiping with praise and thanksgiving.
Have a blessed day!
