Joy Is At The Door

Waking up each morning is a miracle that brings you joy. The enemy would have tried to maybe destroy your life, but God has kept you. Each morning, God sends you a special delivery of joy. It comes knocking at your door. When you get up in faith and make the declaration that “this is going to be a good day,” do you know what you just did? You just answered the door. You just received the gift of joy that God sent to you. 

The problem is that some people never answer the door. Joy has been knocking for months and months, years and years saying, “come on! Let me in! You can be happy! You can enjoy your life!” But they do nothing. Today’s verse is a promise that requires your trust and faith in a God whose promises never fail.  

Today, make up your mind that You’re going to answer the door to joy and shut out sorrow and misery. Wake up every morning and say, “Father, thank You for another beautiful day. I’m going to be happy. I’m going to enjoy this day. I’m going to brighten somebody else’s life. I receive Your gift of joy, today!” 

“…Weeping may last through the night, but joy comes with the morning.” (Psalm 30:5, NLT) 

Let’s Pray 

Yahweh, thank You for the joy You bring to my life each morning. Father, thank You for peace. Thank You for walking with me throughout the day during some difficult times. God, I receive Your package of joy this morning by answering the door of life with faith and expectation. Today God, I choose to walk in the strength You have given to me. Thank You, in Christ’s Name! Amen.

  1. Its like you read my mind! You appear to understand so much approximately this, such as you wrote the guide in it or something.
    I think that you simply can do with some % to force the message house a
    bit, however instead of that, this is wonderful blog. An excellent read.
    I’ll certainly be back.

  2. Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something unique.
    P.S Sorry for being off-topic but I had to
    ask!

  3. I have read and thought about and written about this verse so many times, but never thought of it as a literal promise for the morning (always took it metaphorically). I’m SO blessed by this! Going to start incorporating this insight into my life, so thank you so much! :)
