RIVERS OF JOY
MAIN TEXT: 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. (ESV)
PSALM 97:11, Light shines on the godly, and joy on those whose hearts are right.
Joy flows from a deeply rooted conviction that not only does God cause all things to work together for the good of those who love Him; but inherent in joy is the sense of delight in God that can cause our heart to smile even if things on the outside seem to be falling apart.
The word “joy” is used 93 times in the O.T. It’s a Hebrew word that means “glee” or “exceeding joy.” God wants you to be joyful! Perhaps, you feel as if you have lost your joy; how do you get your joy back?
Joy is found in God’s presence. If you lack joy, make a determined effort to spend time in God’s presence. Enter His gates with thanksgiving, consider His incredible kindness, celebrate how great and powerful God is and you will experience His joy.
THE JOY OF THE LORD RESTS ON THE PERSON WHO HOPES IN THE LORD
PRAYER: I pray that the River of God’s joy will flow in and through me all the days of my life in Jesus’ name Amen.
