Psalm 4:7 (NIV)
You have filled my heart with greater joy than when their grain and new wine abound.
When trouble is all around and everyone seem to be against you, let gladness fill your heart from an assurance that God will hear you. He hears you because of your obedience toward Him – as you diligently seek his face and trust His word. Food and drink may not be plenty, yet He fills your heart with immense joy in the midst of trouble.
Set your heart in the right place to receive your abundant joy. This joy will come spilling over into your heart, mind, home, and upon your every interaction. Giving you peace in the midst of trouble, sorrow, pain, or overwhelm. Receive the joy God has so lavishly poured out upon you – get on the joy ride.
