Matthew 25:21

Grinning Joy

11/23/2021

Do you ever have a blah day? That happened to me some time ago. Not motivated. Not feeling the joy only God can give. If you can relate and it’s been a while since you’ve had grinning joy that causes you to race to God to thank Him, you can. How? What caused me to get the joy only God can give? One morning as I was praying, the Holy Spirit nudged me to do something. I wrote it in my journal, then quickly did it. The result?  My spirit was filled with joy. No doubt the disciples experienced joy after returning from their first missionary journey. (Luke 10:17) They experienced joy as they followed Christ’s instructions. (Matthew 25:21) The next time you notice that there’s no spring in your step, go to God. Offer yourself to Him then follow through on how He prompts you. Experience grinning joy.

Grinning Joy

Good days. Blah days.  I’d been “off” for several days. You know. Not feeling the joy only God can give. No spring in my step. Not motivated. If you can relate and it’s been a while since you’ve had ear to ear grinning joy that causes you to race to God’s throne room to thank Him, I get it. How did I get back my joy? While I was praying, God nudged me to do something. I did what He said and joy. Do you remember the account of Peter fishing all night and not catching anything? Then Jesus told him to cast his net on the other side of the boat? Peter obey and caught a huge net of fish. No doubt, Peter had grinning joy as he hauled in his catch. In what way has God recently prompted you to do something? Have you obeyed? To learn more about grinning joy that comes as a result of obedience, read Matthew 25:21.
