Don’t be dejected and sad, for the joy of the LORD is your strength! Neh 8:10b. The joy of the Lord is your strength. Don’t let trials and difficulties drag you down, as these situations actually draw you closer to God, His presence and His peace to guide you through. Rejoice in Him that He is faithful and true and will never fail you. As you praise and worship Him in the midst of what your going through, you will be strengthened as you acknowledge that all things are possible with God. Don’t allow fear any place in your life! Fear will play havoc with your emotions and give the devil an open playground in your mind. Fear denies the possibility that God is greater than your worst fears – that’s a lie. Walk by faith, that’s the opposite to fear, and allow the joy of knowing that God will make a way in all things to be your strength. Praise God today as the joy of the Lord is your strength as you trust Him.
