How blessed the man you train, God, the woman you instruct in your Word, providing a circle of quiet within the clamor of evil, while a jail is being built for the wicked. God will never walk away from His people, never desert his precious people. Rest assured that justice is on the way and every good heart put right.
My son recently set both these signs beside our shed. When I first saw them, I took this picture. Throughout the week as I've passed by our window and noticed the two signs, I've been reminded of the many times God's Word has brought me JOY. It has provided joy through instuction, knowledge, hope, love, answers, peace, truth and so much more. His Word has led me through extremely difficult times; it's been my life manual, the map to get through the maze of questions that tangle me up. His Word has given me the ability to step forward when I would rather fall back in fear.
What are you reading in His Word today and how do you feel that God is instructing you? Do you feel the circle of quiet around you and the peace within? God has promised to never leave you, He is not going to walk away from you because you are so very precious to Him, do you understand this?
The JOY of the Lord is a way of living; it's a permament fixture within your heart. It's the way your heart beats, and the way your heart knows and hears. It's woven within you like a word.
Today, may you have the Word, live it, speak it, and experience JOY!
