Where do you find your strength?
I hope that your day is full of joy!
When I woke up this morning I was filled with joy as I remembered this scripture, “Do not sorrow, for the joy of the Lord is your strength” Nehemiah 8:10.
That’s so good I’m going to say it again, “The joy of the Lord is my strength.”
Where do you find your strength? Let me say it another way, where do you find energy to face life? Is it in a hobby, a relationship or an exercise routine? I've got to tell you I have all three of those and they are great components of my life, but my strength for life comes from the joy I have found in Jesus Christ. I have found that in every circumstance of life I can receive joy in Christ Jesus and that joy gives me strength.
I want you to know that the joy of Jesus Christ is available to you today. All you have to do is ask for it. Simply say, "Jesus, I believe that you are a good God and I believe you have the power to give me joy and so I ask you for a fresh dose of joy right now."
