For this day is holy unto our LORD: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength. – Nehemiah 8:10 (KJV)
If we had to depend on just our own strength, where would we be? If we had to travel our lives alone, where would we end up? We see it everyday in people all around us – shallow lives, lonely passages, fear and weakness hover beneath smiling facades, but we escape this fate by the grace of God.
By His Spirit, He fills us with His strength, His courage, and His comfort to overcome everything that would discourage, derail or destroy us. Be strong through the Lord and rejoice!
Prayer Starter – I resolve to meet this day with gladness, to glory in You. Whatever circumstance comes my way, I will rejoice and be glad for You are my strength and my source of joy.
