Joy | June 22
… sorrowful, yet always rejoicing; as poor, yet making many rich; as having nothing, and yet possessing all things.
…we have access by faith into this grace in which we stand, and rejoice in hope of the glory of God.
… we… worship God in the Spirit, rejoice in Christ Jesus, and have no confidence in the flesh,
2 Corinthians 6:1-10, Romans 5:2, Phillipians 3:3
Father, we learn from these verses that spiritual poverty makes us ineffective in fulfilling Your will. Yet, when we are full of the Holy Spirit, no matter what our economic situation by worldly standards, we possess all which You intended and by giving it away, we see others inherit the wealth, the Spiritual wealth that You desire for each of us.
The grace You extend to us is undeserved. Help us to be as You Jesus in extending that kind of love to others, forgiving them, and praying for them as we rejoice in Your presence in our lives.
We pray for more love for others. There is no way for us to ask for more love from You. Our cup overflows. In Jesus Holy name, we pray, amen.
