Hope Brings Joy

Nehemiah 8:10 Nehemiah said, “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” (NIV)

I feel in my spirit today that someone needs to be encouraged. You are wrestling within your mind on what to do next. You are wondering where the money is going to come from to pay the bills. Your job seems to be unstable and you don’t know what’s going to happen next. Your children aren’t listening and you’re just trying to guide them from the same mistakes you made when you were younger. I’m here to tell you today that God is going to change your situation around in your favor, your struggle will be your testimony and you will be restored with the joy of the Lord.

Have no doubt that the Lord is going to turn you situation around. His word tells us in Jeremiah 29:11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. (NIV) This scripture lets us know that God isn’t our enemy but our SAVIOR. We know the enemy wants to harm us but our God wants to prosper us. We have hope in the Lord knowing that everything is going to work out.
The joy of the Lord comes from the Holy Spirit that lives within each of us as believers. Let your joy be exemplified in your time of struggles. We know that the world doesn’t give us our joy and world definitely can’t take it away from us. Yes, the joy of the Lord is our strength!!!

I declare and decree that your struggle is over, it’s time to enjoy and have fellowship with others. Let your testimony uplift someone today. Spread your God given joy and let someone know that the God you serve is able to bring joy to their lives. It’s already getting better and God is moving your behalf!
