SING IT WITH ME! “This joy that I have, the world didn’t give it to me. This joy that I have, the world didn’t give it to me. This joy that I have, the world didn’t give it to me. The world didn’t give it, the world can’t take it away.” ?
The kingdom of God is righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. Where’s your joy? I see way too many sour-faced Christians walking around grumbling and complaining, being negative about anything and everything; especially on social media. Where’s your joy?? Don’t you know God despises complaining? What good is it? What good does negativity produce in your life? How does being bitter solve anything?
I’ll give it to you straight, your negativity and bitter complaining is like a force field repulsing and pushing others away. Its a draining force. Whatever your circumstances, you can choose the joy of the Lord. Nehemiah proclaimed, “the joy of the Lord is my strength!” There’s power to overcome in joy. Joy drives you to His throne and bathes in His mercy. Joy trusts in His unfailing love and faithfulness.
Instead of being imprisoned by bitterness; be imprisoned by joy. No man can steal joy! Be content in all things, trust Him for a good outcome and let joy reign supreme. “And these things we write to you that your joy may be full.” I John 1:4 #runyourrace
