Be joyful always.

1 Thessalonians 5:16

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

Now wait just a minute. I have some pretty sorry days! Things don’t always go well for me! Some of my friends have abandoned and betrayed me in my worst moments. How can I be joyful, ALWAYS? The Father reminds me:

“It’s simply, my child, understand that joy is more than always feeling happy. Instead, joy is a deep abiding sense of my grace and living for my purposes. No matter where you are and no matter how hopeless things may seem now, your life is bound for glory — my glory!”

In the light of God’s incredible truth for us, all other things seem bland, out of touch, and insignificant — even those hard times and painful moments. We can rejoice always because we are God’s… ALWAYS!

My Prayer…

O LORD, please give me a clearer sense of your glory and victory. Please empower my faith to trust the truth of your conquest over sin, satan, death, and hell. Please fill me with your Spirit and bring forth your fruit in my life, especially joy. Please fill my mouth with joyful praise for all that you have done for me and promised to me. In Jesus’ name, I joyfully thank you and pray. Amen.
