Acts 13:52 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
52 And the disciples were continually filled with joy and with the Holy Spirit.
God is a God of hope and peace!
He is the one that is the lifter of our heads. Is it any wonder that it is known that he brings joy? Is it any wonder that joy is depicted with being filled with the Holy Spirit?
We must change our minds on what it means to be filled with His presence.
If we are not filled with joy, then we must be missing it somehow.
- How is it that we do not want to think about Him being a God of Joy when we are having to persevere?
- What areas of your life is God trying to fill with joy, yet you are letting your own thoughts and feelings get in the way?
