How are you feeling? Are you joyful? When something is full, there really isnâ€™t room for any more. Itâ€™s a feeling of complete satisfaction. God wants your joy to be full and complete! But, too many people drag through the day with a sour outlook, no enthusiasm and no joy. Hardly ever smile. No laughter anymore. Everything is a burden.
Based upon todayâ€™s verse, God never created us to endure life; He created us to enjoy life. Weâ€™re not supposed to go around with a long face; negative, discouraged, sour and grumpy. Christians, are supposed to be the happiest people on earth. Everywhere we go, we should be so full of joy that we brighten other peopleâ€™s day.
Today, choose love by choosing to obey God. Thatâ€™s how our joy becomes complete. If thereâ€™s an area in your life where you know you need to make some adjustments, do it today. Donâ€™t waste another moment living in disobedience. When we obey, it opens the door to His blessings! When we follow His commands, our joy becomes complete!
â€œAs the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Fatherâ€™s commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete.â€ (John 15:9â€“11, NIV)Â
Yahweh, I humbly come to You. Father, I ask for Your peace and wisdom to do what is right in Your sight. God, grant unto me complete and full joy, as I choose love for You and others by obeying Your Word, in Christâ€™s Name! Amen.Â Â
