November Joy 12: The Joy of the Lord is My Strength 💪
Glee greetings in the name of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. As we enter another week of November Joy, I want to share with you a message that has been on my heart lately: finding joy in the Lord.
What does it mean to find joy in the Lord?
It means to delight ourselves in His presence, His promises, His power, and His purpose for our lives. It means to rejoice in who He is and what He has done for us. It means to trust in His goodness and faithfulness, even when we face trials and troubles.
The Bible tells us that the joy of the Lord is our strength (Nehemiah 8:10). It also tells us that in His presence there is fullness of joy (Psalm 16:11). How can we experience this joy in our daily lives? Here are some practical steps:
– Spend time with God in prayer and worship
Thank Him for His love, grace, and mercy. Praise Him for His attributes and actions. Ask Him to fill you with His Spirit and His joy.
– Meditate on God’s Word
Read, study, and memorise the Scriptures that speak of His joy. For example, Psalm 34:5 says, “Those who look to Him are radiant; their faces are never covered with shame.” Philippians 4:4 says, “Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!”

– Share God’s joy with others
Be a witness of His goodness and grace. Encourage and edify your brothers and sisters in Christ. Serve and bless those in need. Spread the gospel of peace and hope.
– Choose joy over sorrow
We all face challenges and difficulties in this world, but we can choose how we respond to them. We can either let them steal our joy or use them as opportunities to grow in our faith and dependence on God. Remember, nothing can separate us from His love (Romans 8:38-39).
I pray that you will find joy in the Lord this week and always. May His joy be your strength, your comfort, and your crown. May He fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit (Romans 15:13).
With Jesus joy,
