Because of His Joy!

Because of His Joy – My Daily Bread!

Our inspiration to cherish our Lord mightily is found today in Psalm 4: 7-8, NIV, which reads:

“You have filled my heart with greater joy than when their grain and new wine abound.  I will lie down and sleep in peace, for you alone, O Lord, make me dwell in safety.” 

What a picture of great joy in this passage.  God is the maker and sustainer of our peace and abounding joy!  We can sleep without a troubled heart because of the joy of the Lord!  We can love our brothers and sisters because of the joy of the Lord!  We can lay aside all our differences and worship the Lord in Spirit and Truth because of the joy of the Lord!  We can turn our eyes away from worthless things and seek first the kingdom because of the joy of the Lord!   Rejoice Saints, for the joy of our salvation is in our God!  “I will give thanks to the Lord because of His righteousness and will sing praise to the name of the Lord Most High.”  (Psalm 7: 17, NIV)
