And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you. John 16:22
When I was a boy, living on the Florida coastline, my brother and I were always a little disappointed when a hurricane passed us by because of the exhilaration we experienced leaning into the wind and tasting the salty air! I can remember ocean waves sometimes reaching fifty feet in the air. What a sight! But did you know there has never been a storm that could move the ocean floor?
Storms will course across the surface of our lives with raging torment, but the child of God can know a deep-down unmovable joy. If you keep your eyes on Jesus, He will bring a joy no one can take from you.
Thank God for the steadfastness of His power, love, and mercy. Is your joy full in Christ today despite the winds of adversity?
