The Grace of Joy
"Consider it all joy, my brethern,
when you encounter various trials, knowing
that the testing of your faith produces endurance.
And let endurance have its perfect result, that you
may be perfect and complete and lacking in nothing."
"In everything give thanks, for this is God's will for you."
1 Thes 5:18
"The joy of the Lord is your strength."
Set your course on JOY. It is the Lord's will and way. It will be and give to you strength for the journey. In this resolve you will find boldness and courage to do God's will, for you will be walking in the strength of the Spirit and bearing the fruit of joy. Be bold, be strong, be courageous, for the Lord thy God is with you wherever you go. (Josh 1:9)
Choose JOY. Set your course. God's grace is there to meet you and give you that grace of joy to walk in and walk through any situation or circumstance. It's supernatural, because it's God. It's His way and His will. It's His Spirit of life, love and joy. It's the fruit we bear as we walk closely and intimately with Him in the Spirit. And as you set your course and your mindset and step into it, His Spirit will rise up to meet you, and He will show you blessings down the road that He is taking you into. They may not be immediate blessings, but they are blessings of His will that you will walk into as you stay the course. Be bold, be strong, be courageous, for the Lord thy God is with you wherever you go.
