1Thessalonians 5:16 TPT
16 Let joy be your continual feast.[in every season] 17 Make your life a prayer. 18 And in the midst of everything be always giving thanks, for this is God’s perfect plan for you in Christ Jesus.
In all circumstances it is possible to experience the precious joy of the Lord. That doesn’t mean we understand everything we face or find comfort or happiness in it. It means we press into the Spirit and find the powerful presence of the Lord who comforts and cares for us; in his presence is fullness of joy (Ps. 16:11).
Next week we will celebrate Thanksgiving; a day set aside to count our blessings. However, for every other day of the year let’s make our quest to live in the joyous presence of the Lord, make our lives a prayer, and invite the Spirit to help us overflow with praise and thanksgiving to our Creator and Savior!
Prayer: Lord, your joy is so precious to me; help me guard it within my heart and soul! Thank you for the power of prayer and the spirit of gratitude in Jesus name! Amen.
