Happy In The Lord
There should be no doubt that The Lord continues to do great things in our lives, and that should be more than enough to make us happy. The Scripture reminds us that, happy are you, O Israel! Who is like you, a people saved by the Lord, the shield of your help, and the sword of your triumph! Your enemies shall come fawning to you, and you shall tread upon their backs. I encourage you today to find all the happiness you need in The Lord. Be happy today that you are saved by The Lord, and bask in your salvation. Be happy today because The Lord is your shield and He is all the help you will ever need, and since The Lord is your help you have nothing to worry about. Be happy today that you will have the victory over all that comes against you. Things may not be going the way that you want them to go, but you can be happy today that The Lord is doing great things in your life, and that He is with you through it all. I may not be happy about what is happening in the world, but I find my happiness in the great things that The Lord is doing in my life and in the world. The word cannot determine my happiness, only The Lord can. Since I find all of my happiness in The Lord I have no doubt, “it’s My Year To Get My Thing From My God!”
Trials may come and storms may blow, but Lord I find all of my happiness in you. As I go through this day remind me of all that you do to make me happy. In Jesus Name Amen.
