Where To Find Strength And Joy

At this time we all need more strength and joy in our lives. How and where do we get these? The Bible tells us that in God’s presence there is fullness of joy, most abundant and complete! And when you have His joy, you have His supernatural strength. There’s nothing that can come against you when you are filled with His joy and strength.

Today’s verse says that strength and joy are found in His sanctuary. Translated it says they are found “where God is.” Do you know “where He is?” His Spirit is alive in every believer, and in His Word, He says 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 His sanctuary, His temple which houses His presence.

Today, if you feel depleted or overwhelmed by life, lacking in joy and strength, just begin to sing a song of praise to Him. Declare His goodness and faithfulness aloud. Go against what you feel, stay close to Him, and He will stay close to you and fill you with His joy and strength, to live in victory all the days of your life! Hallelujah!

“Honour and majesty are [found] in His presence; strength and joy are [found] in His sanctuary.” (1 Chronicles 16:27, AMP)

Let’s Pray

Yahweh, I bless and lift You up today. I thank You for Your goodness and for inhabiting my sinful, dirty life. Please God, revive Your strength and joy in my life, before they completely disappear. Today I worship and praise You against how I feel, knowing as a result You will fill me up to the brim with joy and strength. I plead for more faith to believe what I ask for this day will come to pass, in Christ’s Name! Amen.
