Have you had your Joy Juice today? God’s PERFECT way is to continually drink in His joy.
Have you ever been lost? It can be a scary time! I recently witnessed a mother and a child separated for just a couple of minutes in a large store! One of them panicked… and one of them was oblivious! You don’t even have to guess which was which, do you? The young child had strayed a couple of aisles over from his mom as she was intently shopping; when she realized he was gone from her side, she was desperate to find him. She called him by name and darted up and down the aisles until she found him…..joyfully exploring the delightful sights along his way!
How can we apply this illustration to our lives? God gives us choices. And though He is a loving Father and wants to protect us, He allows us to go our own way…joyfully exploring the sights along our way. We all have taken a wrong turn in life and may even have begun to panic because we lost our way. Like the loving mother in the store who wanted no harm to come to her child, God loves each of us and wants to protect us from harm.
In Psalm 18:30 we find 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! Let’s seek God’s path and take refuge in Him.
We can always trust in God’s perfect way---as we drink in the Joy of Jesus along our way!
