Bible Verse to Lift You Up 12/3/19
JOY & STRENGTH
Nehemiah 8:9-12 Amplified Bible (AMP) “This Day Is Holy”
“9 Then Nehemiah, who was the governor, and Ezra the priest and scribe,
and the Levites who taught the people said to all the people, “This day
is holy to the Lord your God; do not mourn or weep.” For all the people
were weeping when they heard the words of the Law. 10 Then Ezra said to
them, “Go [your way], eat the rich festival food, drink the sweet
drink, and send portions to him for whom nothing is prepared;
for this day is holy to our Lord. And do not be worried, for the joy of
the Lord is your strength and your stronghold.” 11 So the Levites
quieted all the people, saying, “Be still, for the day is holy; do not
be worried.” 12 Then all the people went on their way to eat, to drink,
to send portions [of food to others] and to celebrate a great festival,
because they understood the words which had been [a]communicated to
me: When I read
this, I thought of the following: When we pray, listen, read the Word,
love God, obey Him, and are caring and helpful to others, we find joy
and peace. When we have joy and peace on the inside, we are also strong
and are not defeated by anything the world has to throw at us. “…for
the joy of the Lord is your strength and your stronghold.”
TAKE AWAY: Holy Spirit helps us grow more like our Lord and Savior Jesus so we have more joy, more peace!

Philippians 4 ESV
4Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice. 5Let your reasonablenessd be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand; 6do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. 7And the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.
God Bless Ronnie. Glad your're feeling better. Nice to see you back.
