GLORIOUS JOY!

Joy – the emotion of great delight or happiness caused by something exceptionally good or satisfying.

Sometimes when I read scripture, I like to dissect the verse.  I believe it helps us to understand the verse meaning better when we read it at a slower pace so that it can resonate with our soul in a deeper way.

This verse for example:

Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy,
1 Peter 1:8 NIV

So let’s break it down S L O W L Y….

Though you have not seen  him, you love him…   I just love this because it is so true.  I have not seen Jesus, but I sure do love him immensely – Why? Because of what He did for you and me.  He took our sins to the cross and demonstrated his love for us in a way no one else could.

and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him…  makes me smile every time.  🙂

and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy… there really is no way to describe this.  One thing is for certain, when you become a child of God, your very life is changed.  Your heart becomes different – it is filled with….glorious joy.

Stay in the word and let God speak to your heart today.  Have a blessed day!
