Commentary from July 2nd, “sorrow is of the devil…”
He that gives to the poor gives to Him(God). This is scripture based,
Psalm 5:11 Be joyful because the Lord is always with us and looking out for us.
How to Get Joy Back When It’s Gone?
- Get or take all that is bothering you and give it to God. Leave it with Him. Do not take it back. Leave it with Him. Proverbs 3:5-6
- Listen to music that will cause you to rejoice and dance.
- Spend time in the presence of God. Which, to me personally, means to pray (not just for a minute or two, but to really pray, let my heart loose with the Lord), to sing praises to His name, to be happy in Him or become happy in Him, to dance to music that lifts God up. Music that lifts God up in praise is not music that talks about me or you, it talk about God and how awesome He is, how awesome His works are, how wonderful and beautiful are the works of His hands.
Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.
1 Timothy 6:17 NIV
“•You are the blessed of the Lord. All your needs and desires are abundantly and unlimtedly supplied with the inexhaustible provisions and riches of God in Christ Jesus.
•In your relationship with Christ you are loved, thought of, cared for, prayed for and you are protected. In John Ch-17 and Romans 8:26, 27 & 34 Jesus and the Holy Spirit are still praying for us.
•Allow the peace of God to rule your heart, His wisdom to rule your mind and know that our God is also our source of comfort, Joy and strength.
24 The LORD bless you, and keep you:
25 The LORD make his face shine upon you, and be gracious unto you:
26 The LORD lift up his countenance upon you, and give you peace.
+++Blessed you are and blessed you will always be and to God be all the glory. Amen!”
-Bro. A. Rose
Sitting in a place with an open window
The birds singing and the sun shining
It would be peaceful to sit there
But what matters
Is having peace within
Does not change
When grey storm clouds roll in
Does not vanish away
When the light of the sun is hidden
Is not rattled
When rain begins to pour
That is when peace within is no longer determined by circumstance
But by the One who is within
And with us daily
God, the Father
And Holy Spirit
Goal: Have peace and joy regardless of the outer circumstance because God said He will never leave or forsake His children.
