Honor and majesty are [found] in His presence; strength and joy are [found] in His sanctuary. (1 Chronicles 16:27, AMP)
Today's Word from Joel and Victoria
Do you need more strength and joy in your life? The Bible tells us that in Gods presence there is fullness of joy the most abundant and complete! And when you have His joy, you have His supernatural strength. Theres nothing that can come against you when you are filled with the strength and joy of the Lord.
Notice this verse says that strength and joy are found in His sanctuary. One translation says they are found where He is. And do you know where He is? His Spirit is alive in every believer, but in His Word He promises that He inhabits, or manifests, in the praises of His people. That means when you begin to praise and worship God, either corporately in a church setting or privately in your personal time, God is there. You are in His sanctuary. Anytime you feel depleted or overwhelmed, just begin to sing a song of praise to Him. Declare His goodness and faithfulness. Draw near to Him, and He will draw near to you. Hell fill you with His joy and strength so that you can live as an overcomer all the days of your life!
A Prayer for Today
Father, I bless You today. I thank You for Your goodness in my life. Thank You for filling me with Your strength and joy. I praise and worship You today in Jesus name. Amen.
