The joy of the Lord is our strength

God Bless you Sister Connie Keyohara for another wonderful message!
“Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”

Nehemiah 8:10

We can find strength in the Lord, and the power of his might, because the Lord is our ever present source of strength.

Life can be so hard, especially with everything happening in our world today. Unexpected hardships, doctors reports, financial loss, marital strains and the list goes on and on. 

But in the midst of any bad news, it is critical that we stay the course, and to work hard, always moving toward the finish line.

Joy shifts our hearts to a position of worship regardless of current circumstances, but our joy has to come from the Lord. 

“God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble. Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea, though its waters roar and foam and the mountains quake with their surging.”

Psalm 46:1-3

The Lord’s strength is unlimited, and forever strong. He is the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.

Behold, he that keepeth Israel shall neither slumber nor sleep.

Psalm 121:4

As the end times approach, it is imperative that we find our strength in God alone! Things will get tough, people will turn against us for our faith, people will judge us for not complying with their beliefs. But keep your eyes on Jesus, for your strength will come from him. 

Whether we’re sad because of life’s problems or the realization of the sin we’re in, it’s crucial we remember that “the joy of the Lord is our strength.”

“He gives power to the weak and strength to the powerless.”

Isaiah 40:29

Many blessings,
