God’s Joy

Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, in everything give thanks; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.  First Thessalonians 5:16-18

God’s Joy

See how much our joy and happiness means to God? God is so much like a parent; He loves it when His children are happy. You can just see Him with a great smile on His face as He hears our giving thanks and rejoicing. Yet to hear so many Christians speak you would think that somehow God gets His kicks out of making life miserable for us.  How ungrateful and unscriptural such thoughts are, nothing could be further from the truth.

God desires that our lives be so filled with joy that we can rejoice always. Stop being so miserable about all that is going on, stop seeking your joy from a political party, election, and the economy and discover it in the treasure of God’s Son.

All that is of this world will in time fade to nothing, we will not take it with us, we will not send it on before us; stop measuring your life by what you have and who you are and remember to allow yourself to know to Whom you belong and that He holds the future.

Nothing except what you have done to honor Christ will make one bit of difference when you get to glory. I hate to say this but I find a lot of people unhappy with life because they have forgotten who is in control and who is going to win.  Read the bible, God wins.

You are on the winning team, live like it. Rejoice; let others see Jesus in your life.  Stop the bitter strife and the ugly comments and get about the Master’s business.
