But let all who take refuge in you rejoice;
let them sing joyful praises forever.
Spread your protection over them,
that all who love your name may be filled with joy.
Thank You for giving us joy. Thank you for Jesus Christ who is Joy. Today let each of us rejoice as we put our trust in You and You alone. Let us abandon our inhibitions and our concern of what man thinks of us so that we can shout for joy because of You. Teach us pure joy in Jesus Christ.
Thank You for spreading Your protection over us and for filling us with joy.
Help each of us step out today in faith and share Your goodness and Your love and Your joy with those around us. Thank You for being our everlasting God.
In the holy name of Jesus Christ we pray.
Today’s Transformation Tip
“Don’t let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God, and trust also in me. There is more than enough room in my Father’s home. If this were not so, would I have told you that I am going to prepare a place for you? When everything is ready, I will come and get you, so that you will always be with me where I am. And you know the way to where I am going.”
“If you love me, obey my commandments. And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Advocate, who will never leave you. He is the Holy Spirit, who leads into all truth. The world cannot receive him, because it isn’t looking for him and doesn’t recognize him. But you know him, because he lives with you now and later will be in you. No, I will not abandon you as orphans—I will come to you.
Soon the world will no longer see me, but you will see me. Since I live, you also will live. When I am raised to life again, you will know that I am in my Father, and you are in me, and I am in you. Those who accept my commandments and obey them are the ones who love me. And because they love me, my Father will love them. And I will love them and reveal myself to each of them.”
We must grow in Christ.
We cannot go it without Christ Himself. For it is through Him, for Him, and in Him that we have our existence. In addition to being in the Body of Christ, we also have the Holy Spirit within us. It is too much for our finite minds to even comprehend but we must meditate upon this truth to get it deep in our hearts. This truth impacts our identity greatly!
Today begin meditating on the glorious fact that we are in Him and He is in us. The God of the Universe resides within each of us. This is awesome and glorious news. Let’s focus on Him within us as we go through our day.
Let’s ask ourselves this question: “Is what I am about to do going to bring honor to Jesus?” If the answer is no then stop and turn to something that will bring Him honor. Jesus in you is enough to transform you and make you more like Him every day.
