The Light Daily Devotional – Rejoice in the Lord
Focus: Rejoice in the Lord
The word for today
Irrespective of what happens, find joy in the Lord and rejoice in Him. When a man’s joy comes from physical things and various achievements in this life, he is likely to live in disappointment!
“Though the fig tree may not blossom, Nor fruit be on the vines; Though the labor of the olive may fail, And the fields yield no food; Though the flock may be cut off from the fold, And there be no herd in the stalls. Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation. The LORD God is my strength; He will make my feet like deer’s feet, And He will make me walk on my high hills.” Habakuk 3:17-19 NKJV
Life is characterized by several uncertainties. Not all expectations are met. To live happily and rejoice all the days of our lives, our trust and confidence must be in the Lord. Even when it seems our aspirations are achieved, the fact remains that it ushers us into greater aspirations.
We are in a world where all calculations about various affairs of life may not work out as planned; a world where what you think you need is not actually what you need. You must learn to find strength in the Lord and rejoice in Him because He will make your feet like a deer’s feet and He will make you walk on your high hills.
What is the source of your joy?
Prayer Point: My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in you, my Saviour; be my strength, make my feet like deer’s feet, and make me walk on my high hills in Jesus’ name. Amen!
Emphasis: To be happy and joyful in the journey of destiny, the Lord must be the source of your joy!
Have a joyful week ahead!
