“The joy I give you daily fuels your strength as you navigate your way through this life. My peace is your victory in times of discontent. The light of my love flowing through you will touch the hearts of those around you who need to know that my goodness still exists in the world. The power of my love ministers to the hearts and minds of others, even when you cannot see it, because you have chosen to live in me and the abundance of my love.
Your inspiration is my presence, through the power of my Spirit, working in you to accomplish my good plans. It is undeniable, it is unstoppable, and it will penetrate even the darkest of hearts to bring truth and life to those who are empty and lost. Your part is to draw near to me. Be willing to go where I lead you and serve me wherever you are.
With joy in your heart, my light shines in you so others will naturally be drawn to me. The more joy fills your soul, the more your life feels complete and satisfied.
My peace resides in a contented heart. It can transform negative spirits. It brings every thought captive to the obedience of Christ so the cycle of peace and joy keeps flowing. This is true abundance: freedom from sin, freedom to live joyfully in peace, unfazed by the aches and pains of life.
Let my joy be complete in you today so that you may rise above everything that would try to bring you down. Joy, fueled by the power of my perfect love, will be your greatest strength as you go with me from day to day.”
- As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. John 15: 9 – 11
- Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy…1 Peter 1:8
- You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand. Psalm 16:11
