Psalm 40:16 (NKJV) Let all those who seek You rejoice and be glad in You; Let such as love Your salvation say continually, “The LORD be magnified!”

All believers who wholeheartedly follow the LORD will find joy in Him. And their joy will never be taken away. For Jesus promises to never leave us nor forsake us. Jesus is always by our side. Therefore, no matter the circumstances in life, in particular during this pandemic, we can always find joy in the Lord. We can always rejoice and be glad in Him. For all who love His salvation can continually say, “The LORD be magnified!” The joy of the LORD cannot be taken away from you, my friend. You may think that fear and worry have snatched it from you, but they have not. For Jesus has not left you. Just as our salvation is assured through the substitutional sacrifice of Jesus Christ. Jesus also promises us real joy, for He has said, “These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full” (John 15:11 NKJV). This is real joy. It is a fruit of the Spirit. And the LORD wants to produce it in you that your joy may be full. So, in the midst of this pandemic, bring your fears and worries to the LORD, and leave it with Him, for He is able to take care of it. And He will give you peace. “Do not sorrow, for the joy of the LORD is your strength” (Nehemiah 8:10 NKJV). Draw closer to Christ, get into the Word of God and you will find joy. God does not want you to be without joy, even in these times of uncertainty. God wants you to find peace and joy in Him. And the LORD wants to put His joy in your heart. Let the Joy of the LORD be your strength. Just as the song goes, by Rend Collective:

The joy of the Lord is my strength
The joy of the Lord is my strength
In the darkness I’ll dance
In the shadows I’ll sing
The joy of the Lord is my strength

God Bless and have a great day in God’s Word.
