"Promise of Joy"
God promises Joy in the midst of our lives. If our hearts are right
with God he absolutely promises us joy. In the midst of
our daily ups and downs, He promises this joy. I struggle with this.
The truth is this...
Blessed are the poor in spirit
Blessed are those who mourn
Blessed are the Gentle
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst
Blessed are the Merciful
Blessed are the pure in heart
Blessed are those who have been persecuted for
the sake of righteousness
Its easy to be joyful when things are going great. Its easy to
be that out going, gleaming women when our lives are
falling right into place. The promise of joy doesn't negate
from its power when we are going through struggles.
The promise is still there.
Jesus Defines Blessing in Matthew as this...
Happiness Regardless of our Situation.
Finding those few moments to immerse yourself with
God. To meet with Him. Cry on His shoulder. Complain
about your day or days. Read His precious letter to us.
Then Praise Him for all He is. Power and majesty. Healer.
He is the Great Healer.
The point is:
It matters not at all what you are going through.
It only matters what God has promised to do.
Even in the hardest of times or trials in your life
He has promised joy in that dark moment or night.
