Obedience and joy // 24-04-18

“Praise the Lord! How joyful are those who fear the Lord and delight in obeying his commands.” Psalms‬ ‭112:1‬ ‭NLT‬‬

God’s commands are not burdensome. He is not a killjoy, He is the source of joy and His commands protect us, they protect the people around us, they protect our relationships and then that place of peace and stability we come to as we follow Him results in joy, His joy that gives us strength! Outside of the will of God there is no real joy no matter how much we might think we know better or how vindicated we might feel to act in a certain way. Choose Jesus today. His command is to love so whatever you do or say today, do it out of love, it’s the only way to overflow with joy 😊
