Where to get joy?

Peace be to you, dear children of God!Thank God for this day that God has given us. Thank God for an opportunity to abide in His Word and draw power, strength and wisdom from it.Yesterday we talked about joy and how important it is to serve God with a joyful heart. Today I would like to talk more about where to get this joy if we don’t have it, if the circumstances of life do not allow us rejoice. What is the source of joy? Here are some ideas that we can find from the Holy Scripture:
«The law of the Lord is perfect, converting the soul; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple; the statutes of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure, enlightening the eyes» (Psalm 19:8-9).
This passage of Scriptures tells us that one of the sources of joy is God’s Word, meditation on the Word and the perception of the (our) world through the prism of the Word. That is why it is so important for us to realize that if we want to remain in joy and learn to draw joy, we must grow in love with God’s Word.The Word of God is a strong motivator for praise and rejoicing.
«Your words were found, and I ate them, and Your word was to me the joy and rejoicing of my heart; for I am called by Your name, O Lord God of hosts» (Jeremiah, 15:16).
Prophet Jeremiah says here that he found the Word of God, dug it up and ate it. How is it possible for us to eat the Word? We „eat” the Word, when we meditate on it and implement the word into our lives. Jeremiah said that first the truth might seem bitter and unpleasant, but later it becomes a source of gladness and rejoicing, if we decide to receive it regardless of our feelings and impressions.If today you want to live in joy then feed yourself from this source, which is the Word of God. The Word of God – it is one of the sources of joy. Once and again we return to the fact that we must feed on the Word of God every day, take it in as our daily bread and then the joy of the Lord will never leave us.May the Lord bless you abundantly on this day! Peace be to you! Till tomorrow! Pastor Rufus Ajiboye
