Nehemiah 8:10, Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for [this] day [is] holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength.
How appropriate a scripture for today! I have been in a place of sorrow, disappointment, overwhelm, and grief. Yet I had been in a place of opportunity, success, growth, love and pleasure. How can that be?! Complete opposites that can take you to the highest high and the lowest low…
I hear Father saying to me this morning as I spend some time in His presence, “Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for who nothing is prepared…” There is no more time for me to be spending in the lowest low, it’s time to move and remain in the highest high. To reach for this high, I MUST allow the joy of the Lord to be my strength.
Lord and Father of my life, I breathe in you this morning and allow your joy to become so full in me, so that I can be the person of strength you designed me to be. Thank you for filling me with your joy … always.
