Insightful, Biblical Devotions

“Do not sorrow, for the joy of the Lord is your strength(Nehemiah 8:10).

Jesus said in John 16:33 to cheer up even in difficult situation. Paul, writing from prison said, Rejoice in the Lord always. Again, I will say, rejoice!” (Phil. 4:4). If you let the devil steal your joy, then you let Him steal your strength. Just compare this to your physical body. What will happen if you have no strength?  If you are around people who have no strength or who are physically weak, you will find that, it’s a miserable existence, it affects everything, you can’t do anything when you don’t have any strength.

If you don’t have the joy of the Lord operating in your life, then according to scripture, you do not have strength. There are so many Christians who are not operating in joy. Most Christians believe that joy is a by-product of circumstances. My friend, you cannot rely on people and circumstances to give you joy. Don’t spend your time waiting for circumstances to change and waiting for when everything in your life is perfect, when everything in your life is going good, then you will rejoice. Start rejoicing now!
