MAY GOD FILL YOU WITH JOY
ROMANS 15:13 (NIV) May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
The joy of the Lord truly is our strength. It is what carries us forward when troubles come and despair and hopelessness attack our inner most being. The enemy wants to rob us of our joy and confidence in Christ. By doing this, he knows it will hinder our progress along the path Christ has chosen and set before us.
By keeping your eyes focused on heavenly things, you will succeed in escaping the snares of the devil. Always keep your focus on Christ. Trust Him and may God fill you with the hope that comes in the knowing you have eternal life. Let this knowledge be your joy today. May it carry you far in your journey. Yes, may it carry you to the very end of your journey on earth and into the realm of glory.
“The out-and-out Christian is a joyful Christian. The half-and-half Christian is the kind of Christian that a great many of you are~~~little acquainted with the Lord. Why should we live halfway up the hill and swathed in the mists, when we might have an unclouded sky and a radiant sun over our heads if we would climb higher and walk in the light of His face?” ~ Alexander Maclaren
