Needing More Joy….

Psalms 144:15 “Yes, joyful are those who live like this! Joyful indeed are those whose God is the Lord”

There’s an old saying “The grass always seems greener on the other side of the fence.” Many people live their lives always in search of greener pastures rather than improving where they are right now.

Our God has built potential into every part of creation and He has given his children the precious keys to open it up. There’s the potential for joy where you are today. God knows the importance of joy in our lives and He neither denies nor hides it from us.

Psalm 144 shows us His simple process to obtaining joy as well as instructing us on how to live above any circumstance that wants to rob it from us. The basic foundation for Joy is making God our Lord and not just our God. Simply, we must cease just knowing about God and start living every part of our lives as He instructs in His Word. This is what brings joy.

God has placed the potential for joy exactly where you are today so there’s no need to look elsewhere. Start working God’s Word into your circumstances, family and workplace today and discover joy as it starts budding and flowering all around you.

This week let’s increase the Lordship of God by releasing His Word and His ways into our world. If there is little joy where you are then grab the keys from Psalm 144 and open up the potential for joy that God has placed there. Before long the greenest pasture of joy will be where you are and there will be no need to look elsewhere.
