Nehemiah 8:10 “…for the Joy of the Lord is your strength”
The Joy and happiness that the world gives is temporary and when it’s gone, it rots the bones. Proverbs 17:22 says “A joyful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones."
When we go through life’s challenges, make sure to have the Joy of the Lord within you. When we have Joy of the Lord, we serve the Lord with gladness (Psalm 100:2). Bible mentions so many times to rejoice and be glad, for our reward is in heaven (Matthew 5:12).
We can have the Joy of the Lord by talking to Him every moment in prayer and meditation. Sing praises and, honor and seek Him with all your heart and the Joy of the Lord will be full in your heart and no-one can take it away.
Nehemiah 8:10 says Joy of the Lord is my strength. When we have the Joy of the Lord, we will have strength to go through difficult times. Cast your burdens on God and serve the Lord joyfully.
