Manna For Today: Thursday, December 8, 2016
Nehemiah 8:10 – Then He said to them, “Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet, and send portions to those for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord. Do not sorrow, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.”
The reason the enemy of our soul attacks our joy in Him so viciously is that he knows our strength is connected to it. If he can sever our source, he can sabotage our future. Thank God, he can’t!
God has so uniquely integrated His joy with us that while we may not be experiencing it at any particular time just one turn of our faces to His generates enough joy for ourselves and all those who are around us. He makes us instant reservoirs of His joy.
So, go forward today! Eat well, give to those who are hungry, remember this is the day the Lord has made, push beyond grief and be filled with the unspeakable joy of God that is your strength.
Peace and blessings!
