Nehemiah 8:10 “The joy of the Lord is our strength…”
The Biblical meaning of joy encompasses ‘the feeling of exultant gladness which often finds outward expression in such actions as leaping, shouting, and singing” which is “the natural outcome of fellowship with God.”’ (International Standard Bible Encyclopaedia).
Whatever you face today: busyness, tiredness, trauma, relationship struggles, mental battles, mission, and so forth, be encouraged, the answer is in spending time in fellowship with our good, good Father.
Psalm 16:11: “You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.”
Psalm 118:24: “This is the day that the Lord has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it.”
So today, rejoice in God’s goodness!
