What God gives us through Christ is more valuable than any other present we could ever receive on Christmas day. Through the gift of God’s only Son, Jesus Christ our Savior we have been given the gifts of forgiveness, peace, hope, love, righteousness, redemption, joy, victory, eternal life and so much more. Thank Him today for His indescribable gift!
You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
Until we find the path that God has set for us we will have a longing to be complete. The only thing that can fill the emptiness is the love of God. When we are in His presence we feel a sense of wholeness and when we are on the path that leads to God, no matter what is going on around us, we are able to feel joy. How wonderful to be on the path that was laid out for us by our Creator.
You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy.
For whatever reason, be it sin, mourning, sickness or something else, if you are in a season of darkness turn to God. He is the restorer of light and goodness. By His grace He will turn your sorrow into joy, your brokenness into beauty, your wailing into dancing.
Dear friend, I pray that you may enjoy good health and that all may go well with you, even as your soul is getting along well.
Make sure you take care of your body, but don’t forget to also take care of your soul, good health starts from the inside. Do things that make you smile and bring you joy. Do volunteer work, it not only helps others, it makes you feel happy too. Forgive, let go of anger and hurt so you can move forward. But the most important thing you can do for your soul is to spend time with God.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Without hope we feel helpless, alone and powerless. But our God is the source of all hope. Hope for healing, hope for peace, hope for joy. All hope comes from knowing, believing and trusting God and by His grace and the power of the Holy Spirit, He has given us the precious gift of hope. If you feel hopeless, seek a relationship with the author of all hope, God Almighty.
Blessed be the Lord, who daily loadeth us with benefits, even the God of our salvation. Selah.
Wake up with praise on your lips, focused on God. Start your day right and receive the blessings the Lord has in store for you today. Each day is loaded with blessings of joy, peace, mercy, grace and salvation!
