The Joy of the Lord Is Your Strength

How often do we encourage one another with words like this:

Nehemiah said, “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” Nehemiah 8:10

Not often enough for us to feel the closeness and joy that comes when church family loves as they should. This week, imagine ways to inspire others to be happy by choice, joyful in spite of pain, and at peace when the world is in chaos.

This is our inheritance. We’re able to do the things the rest of the world cannot. Take strength from the joy of the Lord. And encourage others to do the same.
