“Be still and know that I am God” Psalm 46:10
Joy is a state of being and a gift from God-given to those who wait and trust on Him in the difficult time of life; those ready for a total commitment to the plan and purpose God has for us. Sometimes we fail to move forward because we lack vision even after the desire to serve is within our hearts.
Proverbs 29:18 tells us “where there is no vision, the people perish” (or run wild). We are in an age and culture where our vision has become very short-sighted and rather than having a single focus we are occupied with over stimulation of choices from the world around us, robbing us of the precious promises that are waiting for those that will “walk the talk”.
Many mistake joy with happiness. Feelings, also a gift, when positive can also feel like joy. We need to learn how God has made us. The brain has a major role in how the body passes on information we gather from our senses and thinking. Understanding how the brain works in behalf of the body and how it can work against us is determined by us. “As a man thinks, so is he.” Study along with us as we start an adventure inside the body, as it has been purchased by the Lord Jesus on the Cross as a dwelling place for the Holy Spirit to work through us.
