The joy of the Lord is your strength!

September 21, 2023

“Then he said to them, Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet…Do not sorrow, for the joy of the Lord is your strength” Nehemiah 8:10, NKJV.

“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing” James‬ ‭1‬:‭2‬-‭4‬ ‭NKJV.‬‬

You may be experiencing a trial or have made a mistake. You may feel like you have an uphill climb and don’t know what to do. The children of Israel had been through some things as well, but just as Nehemiah told the children of Israel, so the Lord says to you. The joy of the Lord is your strength!

Count it all joy because, in the end, the Lord is working it for your benefit. See it from a word perspective and praise Him for His goodness. Rejoice over all the great things he has already done for you. Don’t be so focused on looking for a blessing that you forget you are already blessed. Don’t get worried about a situation that you forget to rejoice in the Lord who is over it. You can laugh, live, and have a merry heart, which is good for you. Above all, you are in His hands. God has it all under control. The joy of the Lord is the strength the enemy can’t handle, and let nothing outweigh the joy of the Lord from operating in your life.

Prayer: Father, I praise you! A lot is going on right now, but I refuse not to let joy rise in my life. I receive and walk in the supernatural power of your joy. Let it be a great strength for me today. In Jesus’ name, Amen!

Study: Proverbs 15:15, John 15:11, Philippians 4:4, James 1:1-4
