JOY....is it important?


"The joy of the Lord is your strength. (Nehemiah 8:10)"

I love to read devotional books because its refresh my inmost being. Reading the inspiring word of God makes me get up again and continue to run the run of life.
Joy is a very serious concept in the Bible as it is said in the book I am reading. It is not a superficial warm and fussy kind of feeling...."It's the fruit of the Spirit." It can help a person specially those who believe in Jesus Christ as God and Savior to overcome all kinds of adversity.
In my life as a worker of God is not that easy. I defended everything to God even the tiniest thing I ever need. But, yes, there are times that I really would like to do it my way and end up in vain...struggling. There are times that I woke up in the middle of the night to pray with all surrender to HIM.
Then...comes the Lord with His grace and joy giving it to me again.
...so today ask God to send you His supernatural joy and feel yourself grow strong in His life-changing joy....
