The Believers Joy

The Believers Joy

Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the Lord is your strength. – Nehemiah 8:10

One of the saddest things in our churches today is the joyless lives of many of the believers.  The scripture tells us that “the joy of the Lord is our strength”

You must choose joy.

You must pursue joy.

How can I experience the Joy of the Lord in my life?

Joy comes from making God’s words personal

Joy comes from whole hearted service

Joy comes from faithful service

Joy comes from winning souls

Joy comes from answered prayers

Joy comes from the presence of the Lord

Joy comes from knowing your children are walking in the truth

If you are not experiencing the Joy of the Lord, ask:

Am I spending time daily in the presence of the Lord

Do I recognise and appreciate the Holy Spirit

Do I have unconfessed sin
