Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me: O LORD, make haste to help me, Amen


Be pleased, O LORD, to deliver me: O LORD, make haste to help me, Amen
Psalm 40:1

What is The JOY of The LORD is my strength, Amen.

God is also a God who finds great pleasure in His creatures and creation. Our God is both joyful and the source of our joy. How grateful we should be for this attribute of our great God.

As one looks through many of the works on the attributes of God, the topic of the “joy of the Lord” is not often found. For some reason, the “joy of the Lord” seems to be a neglected aspect of God’s nature and character.

What brings pleasure to our Father?
We can cast our minds back to a sporting event – a proud parent practically glows.

We have The Father, Amen, what brings Him joy?
Unfortunately, the word “happy” has been redefined and so trivialized in our culture that it is little wonder we hesitate to use it in reference to Christians or to our God. Yet I believe we should redefine and seek to reclaim the term. For the present, however, we may be safer to use the term joy, a term more frequently used of God and of Christians. In Nehemiah, we find this familiar statement:
“The joy of the LORD is your strength” (Nehemiah 8:10
We are comforted to know that our strength comes from The Joy of The LORD, Amen

Joy is an invaluable gift of God that radiates to others. There are so many Bible verses about joy that share that God simply wants to give us the gift of joy when we choose to trust in Him.

Our provision of needs brings our God joy to reach out and redefine our lives, Amen
