Clothed With Joy
When Jesus worked, He worked as no man had ever worked. When He found the sick He showed them the way to healing, when He found the impure He showed them the way to cleansing, when He found the broken He showed them the way to wholeness, when He found the heavy of heart He led them to the fountains of joy, when He found those in darkness He led them to His glorious light, when He found the thirsty He led them to the rivers of living water.
When Jesus spoke, He spoke as no man had ever spoken. He spoke with authority. His words went deeper than the mind—His words reached deep into a person’s inner-most being—piercing the heart, touching the conscience, stirring the spirit, restoring the soul. What He said could be trusted, and every heart that trusted what He said was changed forever.
Jesus still works and He is still speaking. What is He working in your life? What is He saying to your heart? Is there a new step of faith to take? Is there a new ministry He is leading you to do? Is there a change He wants to make within you? Is He asking you to trust Him at a deeper level? Is He saying to be still and wait? Let Him work, let Him speak, let Him have His way with you and your obedience will be clothed with joy.
I take joy in doing your will, my God. Psalm 40:8 NLT
