Joyful Kingdom

Joyful Kingdom

“The kingdom of God is…joy in the Holy Spirit.” Romans 14:17

If your life has been sour, or even bitter, God wants you to recognize that his kingdom is joyful.
Regardless of circumstances, relationships, or issues in your life today that may be trying to steal your joy, the kingdom of Christ wants to change you from the inside and fill you with the joyful presence of Jesus.

Joy is not the absence of trouble; joy is the presence of Jesus. If you have Jesus, you have access to reservoirs of joy.

Joy is not the result of positive thinking. Joy is the result of the presence of Christ and his kingdom. The Holy Spirit wants to manifest his joyful presence in your life today.

Loving Father, I receive the joyful presence of Jesus as a kingdom reality in my life today.
