“…But joy comes in the morning…“, Psalm 30:5
I’ve been thinking about this verse a lot lately. I woke up this morning, not particularly feeling joyful. It seems like my thoughts are the first thing that can turn into distractions…negativity. It definitely doesn’t stem from the fruit of joy. Reading this verse makes me think, “Shouldn’t I feel joyful when I wake up?” I feel like the action of this verse to me is more choosing to be joyful than simply receiving joy. Things change when I start to think about the things that I actually have to be joyful about. There is a shift in my mind and my heart opens up to all that God has for me for the day. I have to choose this fruit of the Spirit. It doesn’t always come naturally. In my religious nature, I think that this is something that should be automatic if I think that I’m walking with God. But I believe He allows us to take part by consistently choosing Him every day.
Joy comes in the morning. I may not wake up “feeling” that way, but it’s available because His Word says it’s available. It is not be based on earthly experiences but on Kingdom realities.
It’s available for me. It’s available for you.
Is it just me or do you find this relevant to your own life?
Praying supernatural joy for you today,
