Joy in the morning! Nehemiah 8:10; Psalm 30:5

Good morning everyone,
When you feel like giving up, Nehemiah reminds us that the joy of the Lord is your strength.  You may be weak when it comes to physical strength and you may feel as though you want to give up, but the Holy Spirit gives you strength that endures.  This morning as you awake, remember that this is the day that the Lord has made and let us rejoice and be glad in it!  Wherever you are at in your Christian walk, remember that God wants to get your attention so that He can minister to you personally.  You invest in the relationship with Him and He will make sure you have the necessary weapons to defend when the enemy attacks.  You may lose your ability to do things physically but you can always rest assured that you can live on His promises.  All the grief that satan trys to put upon you can quickly dissipate if you allow the Holy Spirit to quench.  We battle an inward problem with allowing our selfishness to get in the way.  Ask God to help you to get out of the way so that He can show you the Way!  Psalm 30:5 tells us that His anger is but for a moment, and His favor is for a lifetime.  Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes in the morning.  God gives hope to the weary.  Isaiah 40:31 says, 'but they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.'  His favor is for a lifetime!  Trusting Him now assures that when you leave this place physically, He is going to give you a brand new body that will last forever.  One that won't grow tired and become weary!  Woo Hoo!  Whatever issues you are faced with only last for a season.  Remember that our actions going through those seasons reflect who He is or isn't in our life!  Choose today whom you will serve and let the healing begin!
Your brother in Christ,
