Joy & Faith

“The king shall have joy in Your strength, O Lord; and in Your salvation how greatly shall he rejoice!”  David says in Psalm 21:1.

“Your gentleness had made me great,” Psalm 18:35.

Romans 5:1-2 (NLT), “Therefore, since we have been made right in God’s sight by faith, we have peace with God because of what Jesus Christ our Lord has done for us. Because of our faith, Christ has brought us into this place of undeserved privilege where we now stand, and we confidently and joyfully look forward to sharing God’s glory.”

Romans 15:13 (NKJV), “ Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.”

Jesus in John 15:11, “ These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full.”

Loving Father, we’ve all heard many sermons on Faith & Joy being inseparable. The truth is all gifts of Your Holy Spirit are forever linked to You our Father – night and day.

The first thought I had yesterday was “Rejoice”.  It’s a command, as well as an encouragement.  Don’t look at circumstances, look above.  We can do all that’s humanly possible to help our case, but God is in control and He wants us to look to Him.  God will give you great favor.  Philippians 4: 4, says, “Rejoice in the Lord always; and again I say, rejoice.”

“I will sing of the mercies of the Lord for ever; with my mouth will I make known Your faithfulness to all generations.” (Ps 89:1)

God moved through a mountain of  issues in my life yesterday starting with an answer to a problem lasting all year!
