“These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full” John 15:11, NKJV.
I wake up remembering an old song called “Jesus the center of my joy” by Richard Smallwood. What a great reminder of how everything that fulfills us, gives life meaning, strengthens us, and makes us simply happy revolves around Jesus.
The love that Jesus has for you will miraculously hold your joy together. Knowing His word and keeping it will hold your joy together and cause you to be full of it, even in the unlikeliest times. He is at the middle of your life, and all that you do for others is out of the love that He’s shown you. His desire is that you know He loves you greatly. He’s your overcoming hope and the center of your joy! I declare He’s touching your heart and making your joy full today.
Prayer: Father, I praise You. Jesus, You are the center of my joy. You are my hope and strength. You are the very heart I need to be the man You’ve called me to be. I get full of joy simply knowing You love me greatly. Help me to abide in Your word and in the love by loving others as You have loved me. My joy overflows today. In Your name, I pray, Amen.
