Joy of the Lord

“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).”

It is important the believer in Jesus Christ not forget the answered prayers from the Lord. The quick prayers before a test and you receive an A. The quick prayer for something on sale and God is merciful and the price you wanted to pay shows up on the cash register. The time you loose your keys and ask Jesus to help you find them and he reminds you that you left them under the bed. Do not take for granted his love, grace and mercy. These things should bring you joy that the Creator of the Universe would answer the very large prayers like the healing of a family member or small prayers like helping you find your keys.

Enjoy your relationship with Jesus and when temptation, trials, and/or persecution comes your way, just remember what God has already done and never forget what he has already prophesied about the future of those who remain faithful until the very end. He has gone to prepare mansions in heaven for you.
