Jesus told her, “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying.” John 11:25, NLT
How was your day yesterday? Did you worry? Are you facing something that causes you fear or apprehension?
I am always surprised that even after years of studying the Bible, learning from excellent Christian teachers, preaching the Gospel, and discipling others in Christ, I find myself worrying and stewing over things that have happened or have NOT happened to me. I know better. But sometimes, I have to ask the Lord for grace and focus so I can remember that I know better.
The truth is, if we are living in Christ, there is no need to worry. The Lord has already promised us eternity in Heaven with Him. He has already won. And when I think about this, my joy easily replaces my worry.
Today, I want to remind you to keep your focus on Him and not your circumstances. This is how we truly live in joy!
Lord, we ask You to fill our days with Your peace and presence. We want to live our lives full of Your joy. Amen.
