00759 - The Joy Of The Lord Is Our Strength

It's not merely a fleeting emotion but a profound sense of happiness and peace that comes from knowing God and experiencing His love. When we tap into the joy of the Lord, it empowers us to face challenges and uncertainties with confidence and hope.

In Nehemiah 8:10, we read, "And do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is your strength." This verse reminds us that even in difficult times, God's joy can uplift our spirits and give us the resilience we sometimes genuinely need. It's a joy that transcends our circumstances, rooted in the unchanging nature of God's goodness and faithfulness.

Living in the joy of the Lord transforms our outlook on life. It helps us focus on the positive, be grateful for our blessings, and trust that God is in control. This joy sustains us and radiates to those around us, spreading hope and encouragement.


Joy is infectious; the more you practice it, the more it becomes part of you.


Father, thank You for allowing me to experience Your joy and live by it. Amen.

Action Point

Try and put negativity aside in conversation for a whole week and embrace joy.
