“Will You not revive us again, that Your people may rejoice in You?” Psalm 85:6
We all want to be happy, but due to life’s circumstances we can’t always BE happy. Ah but joy, that is something that is not affected by our circumstances. Joy comes from the Lord and dwells deep down in our soul like a fire. Sometimes the circumstances of life can try to throw water on our joyful fire, but if we know the Lord it can never completely snuff it out.
Jesus tells us in John 15:11 – I have told you these things that My joy and delight may be in you, and that your joy may be of full measure, complete, and overflowing.
As we seek revival in our country, find it first in yourself, that you may rejoice in Him and spread the joy.
