Have you had your Joy Juice today? GOOD NEWS: “This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it!” Psalm 118:24
Though it’s April 1st, I’m not going to play any tricks on you. I’ll not try to fool you into thinking something other than the truth. The Word of God is just the place to find Truth. Today I’d like for us to look at this truth: Our common lives can become “uncommon” if we are sold out to Christ.
We all experience battles in this life. Some battles are ours to fight and some are not. Our friend and author Susie Larson says, “Not every wrong is ours to right. Jesus has so specifically ordained our lives that we will each encounter different seasons at different times. For you, this may be a time to recover. For another, this may be a time to take cover. And still another might be called to run to the battle line.”
How do we recognize the difference and know what we are called to do? By relinquishing control to God and waiting on Him to show us what steps to take and when. Larson says, “We get anxious and weary when we hoist the world’s problems onto our own shoulders. God is already carrying the world, so we don’t have to. We only have to carry what He puts in our hands for that day.”
Don’t be fooled into thinking that God is not there for you in the midst of your battles. This is the day He will joyfully help you…today and EVERY day!
