Good morning everyone!
“I will go to the altar of God, to God-the source of all my joy.” Psalm 43:4
We were made for joy. That is because God created us to fellowship with Him and it is in this relationship that we find real lasting joy. It is the deep realization of how much He really loves us, how much He delights in us that cause us to spend time with Him. Like David, we will run to the altar of our heart. It is this “remaining in His love” that we have a joyful fellowship with God. Jesus said it this way, “I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love. When you obey my commandments, you remain in my love, just as I obey my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow!” The secret is remaining in His love. So today, come to the altar of God, come in joyful anticipation.
Come with the full realization that He loves you like the most loving Father in the universe would love their child. Rejoice, be glad, remain in His love and let your joy in Him overflow.
