Have you had your JOY JUICE today? Pray for an extra serving of joy as you go about your daily routine!
So often when we pray, we forget that it’s not just about talking to God; it’s just as much about LISTENING. Sincere, genuine prayer comes from a heart that desires for God to reveal His best plan for us in all circumstances. How can we determine what that “best” is, unless we listen to His direction?
In the Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 7:7, Jesus taught, “Ask, and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.”
God loves us more than we will ever be able to comprehend and He’s waiting for us to come to Him with the needs and concerns that are on our heart. “He gives us, in essence, an open door into his almighty presence,” says David Jeremiah, “and into His infinite storehouse of riches and blessings.”
So remember to ASK, SEEK, KNOCK and the door will be opened. That’s what prayer is all about! Pray, and learn to listen for God’s direction toward JOY in your life!
Ask for joy; seek joy; knock on the door of joy…by drawing close to Jesus and walking in His ways.
