Have you had your Joy Juice today? When we enjoy the joy of the Lord, it brings joy to God our Father…because He loves for His joy to be our joy!
Now…that’s a lot of joy! But there is such truth in that statement. Have you ever considered how thrilled God is over our heart-felt devotion; and when His joy becomes ours, He truly is pleased!
We receive “joy-gifts” all along our way throughout each day. If our love for the Lord is sincere, we should be willing to give gifts back to Him. Gifts of worship, honor, obedience…not because He demands them, but because we love Him and want to show our gratitude for Who He is! Sincere love should overflow …just as the verse in Proverbs 4:23 says: “Above all else, guard your heart, for everything you do flows from it.”
Do love and joy flow from your heart? Author Liz Curtis Higgs writes: “Flow is a wonderful thing. Every minute of every hour our beating hearts send blood through our bodies, keeping us alive. We don’t have to think about it. We don’t have to plot, plan or practice. It just flows.
Each time we love and trust instead of fret and fuss, God changes our stop-and-go into flow. What might you start doing—or stop doing—to keep your heart pure so God’s love can pour through you?”
May your heart overflow with God’s love and joy!
