Have you had your JOY JUICE today? It’s the PERFECT drink if you want to discover the JOYful way of life!
As a little girl I would really get excited when I got to go shopping with my mother. One day we were in a large department store and I strayed away from my mom’s side. I was admiring the pretty clothes and such; but as I turned to tell my mother something, she was not there! Due to the big crowd and my small size, as hard as I tried I could not see my mom! I panicked! I thought I was lost! But mother had never lost sight of me. She was only a few feet away, watching me the whole time. I had no reason to be frightened and upset.
Do you ever panic because it seems that the Lord has forgotten about you? Are you running around trying to find him, wondering where He has gone? Take a deep breath and calm down! He’s right there, with his eyes focused precisely on you. Many times it’s we who have wandered away from the path, but He ALWAYS knows where we are and will help us, if we will call out to Him. His Word tells us over and over again that we can trust in Him; He is near; He loves us.
In Psalm 18:30 we receive comfort from these words:
“As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him.”
His way is PERFECT…..though we will never be! We can take refuge in our perfect Savior. Doesn’t that soothe your fears and wash you with a sweet peace and JOY?
Take comfort in the truth that the Word of God is flawlessly perfect. Let’s drink the JOY JUICE that comes from following His way.
