Let Jesus make your joy complete.
As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love.
Thank You for the love You have so freely given to us. Thank You for giving us Jesus Christ, born to a virgin in impossible circumstances, to be our Savior. With You there is nothing impossible. You have conquered death and won! Our victory is complete in You.
Today we ask that You help us to keep our focus and gaze fixed on You and You alone.
We praise You that Your ways are so much higher than our ways. Take us deeper into who You created us to be. Show us the unseen. Transform us into the very likeness of Jesus.
It is in His holy name that we pray.
Today’s Transformation Tip
I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.
True joy comes from Jesus Christ alone. We cannot manufacture or create joy in our own lives. The joy that Jesus spoke of is not equal to happiness. Happiness is an emotion we feel based upon our circumstances.
Joy is not based on circumstances.
It is based on the knowledge that Jesus Christ is in us and we are in Him. It is based on the knowledge that we will spend eternity with Him and nothing or no one can change that fact. Joy is truth settled deep in our soul that we are His. Period.
How do you get joy?
We get joy by being grounded in the Word of God. When we seek Jesus as our Rock and Savior and when our hearts are turned toward Him, He makes us complete .
Friends, get in the Word today. If you’ve never read your Bible that much, just open it up and start reading. Ask Holy Spirit to help you and He will reveal things to you that you would never perceive on your own. Daily devotionals help as well. Start reading the gospels – Matthew, Mark, Luke or John. Or start reading any of Paul’s letters which are past the gospels in the New Testament. Just start reading today.
The Word will transform your life and you’ll never be the same!
Stay in the Light and Love always,
