Joy Of The Lord

It's good to have a solid faith that doesn't leave you always relying on hearing from God to take the next step. But oh, does it feel good to get a word from Him! God is so good because He's always right on time and He knows just what we need. The Word the Lord showed me that I needed to hear, and I wanted to share with you is from Nehemiah 8:10. "Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength." With everything happening in this world and personally with myself, it's hard not to get down. The enemy attacks our minds to make us feel like we're unworthy of God's love. That we're not good enough, that we'll never do anything right. And he is a liar! It's so awesome that we can always go into the presence of God and receive that joy from Him that we need to overcome the attack on the mind. Even if there are circumstances you feel you can't deal with, His presence is there to give you that joy you get from knowing Him. So just praise Him! You don't have to wait until your circumstance change, you don't have to wait until you feel good about yourself, you don't have to wait until you feel like praising Him! Praise Him, and that joy you need will come.
