Psalm 94:19 NIV, “When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought me joy.”
When we are overwhelmed by the anxieties of the world, “The joy of the Lord is truly our strength (Nehemiah 8:10)!” Even though the circumstances we face may seem uncertain, we can have joy knowing our circumstances are not beyond the reach of God. His sovereignty covers even the situations that seem the most hopeless. In Him there is always hope.
It’s easy to walk by faith when things are in order. However it’s the days where life doesn’t make sense, the days when chaos is happening all around us, or the days when tragedy strikes in our families, that we have to stand firm on the promises of God and keep walking by faith. Faith doesn’t have to make sense in the natural, because we serve a supernatural God. His love and power far exceed anything we could ever begin to imagine, yet He has chosen to know us.
The joy of the Lord puts a smile on our face and a song in our heart. His joy brings us light when everything else seems dark. What a joy it is to know, His goodness and mercy are following you and me!
I pray that the joy of the Lord will fill your heart and soul today. In the name of Jesus. Amen.
When you choose JESUS, you choose JOY.
