You mean I can have JOY in the midst of a world that is in chaos? Oh, yes! Because JOY is an attitude of the heart, joy is beyond our circumstances. Joy is not the absence of problems; it is knowing that G-d is in control, and He is working all these circumstances for our good and for His glory. What greater joy is there than the birth of a baby? Well, right now, the eternal Kingdom of G-d is about to be birthed on earth. The King of Kings, the One standing next to you and defending you, is on His way! This is JOY! Joy is a child running into His father’s open arms. Our father’s arms are open. Choose JOY and run into those welcoming arms. Let’s remind each other to CHOOSE JOY –
For I tell you, that many prophets and kings have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; Luke 10:24
We are blessed beyond words! He has trusted us to be alive in these days and to welcome in His Kingdom!
Choose JOY – and let it infect everyone around you!
Psalm 16:11b….you will fill me with joy in your presence
Nehemiah 8:10 The joy of the Lord is your strength.
