The Source Of True Joy – Joyce Meyer Devotional, 27th March 2023
Text: Psalm 30:11
It brings incredible joy when you embrace the truth that you are a forgiven and adored child of God. So why are so many Christians sad, frustrated, and miserable?
I believe it is because they do not understand the reality of being a child of God and the inheritance that is ours in Him. An obstacle or difficulty distracts them, and they simply forget the promises of God for their lives. This is the quickest way to live a sad life instead of a glad life.
Jesus did not die to give you a discouraged, defeated, “down” life—He is your glory and lifter of your head (see Psalm 3:3). God has given you everything you need to enjoy Him, to enjoy yourself and the life He has given you. So, look up today. Celebrate His goodness and His blessings in your life. You are a child of the King…let that fill your heart with joy!
Prayer of the Day: Thank You, Father, for helping me embrace the truth of Your love for me. I am grateful that I do not need to be distracted by obstacles or difficulties and that I can choose to be happy and filled with joy.
