JULY 25 – JOY

7/25 Colossians 1:10-12
Then the way you live will always honor and please the Lord, and you will continually do good, kind things for others. All the while, you will learn to know God better and better. We also pray that you will be strengthened with his glorious power so that you will have all the patience and endurance you need. May you be filled with joy, always thanking the Father, who has enabled you to share the inheritance that belongs to God’s holy people, who live in the light.
JOY
Joy in the Lord is an inner knowing that the Lord will never leave you nor will He permit you to be defeated. We belong to God. He is our Father and He loves us. Every thought that the Lord has towards you is for good. Joy knows this in the day-to-day activities of our life. Not a hope, not a promise, not something we will have by and by but in fact a real knowing in the now that we belong to the Lord and He is involved in everything that happens to us. Joy is living as a child of God.
