“May the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; may they be happy and joyful.” (Psalm 68:3)
Hello friend! Today’s promise verse is Psalm 68:3. “May the righteous be glad and rejoice before God; may they be happy and joyful.” This is what the Lord wants for you. He wants you to be happy and joyful. Sometimes you become so worried about the things happening in life that you even forget to smile. Have you seen babies smiling? They are innocent and laugh with all their heart. Every time I see my daughter smiling, I think of that. Even a tiny thing like a flower or insect, she enjoys and smiles with all her heart. The Lord wants you to be like that.
The Bible says in I Peter 5:7 “Cast all your burdens on him because he cares for you.” Whenever you cast all your fears on Him and whenever you tell God everything, He will change it for our good. Even before God changes the situation, you will feel the joy of the Lord. You will feel the peace in your heart that God has taken care of everything in your life. This will leave you feeling very happy.
To God, you are a little child. You came into this world as a little baby full of joy and no worries, but as you grew you started thinking about many things and worrying about them. Today, cast every worry of yours on the Lord. Tell Him ‘Lord, take care of it. I want to be happy with the life you have given me.’
My loving Heavenly Father,
Thank you for today’s promise. I cast all my burdens and fears on you. Father, thank you for you are there to care for me and want me to be happy every day of my life. Thank you for the friends and family you have given to keep me happy. Let your joy fill me and become my strength.
In Jesus’ name, I pray, Amen.
