Be Filled With Joy – Daily Wisdom
Welcome to Wisdom-Trek with Gramps. We are on Day 1894 of our Trek, and it’s time to explore another nugget of wisdom, which includes an inspirational quote and some wise words from Gramps for today’s trek. Wisdom is the final frontier in gaining true knowledge. So we are on a daily trek to create a legacy of wisdom, seek out discernment and insights, and boldly grow where few have chosen to grow before.
Hello, my friend; this is Gramps. Thanks for coming along on today’s trek as we increase Wisdom and Create a Living Legacy. Proverbs 16:16 How much better to get wisdom than gold, and sound judgment than silver! If you apply the words you hear today, over time, it will help you become more healthy, wealthy, and wise as you continue your daily trek of life. So let’s jump right in with today’s nugget:
Today’s quote is from Catherine Marshall, and it is: According to Jesus, it is God’s will that His children be filled with the joy of life.
Be Filled With Joy
Every Christ-follower should be filled with joy to overflowing. Of course, that doesn’t mean that life will be easy all the time or that we won’t have problems or discouragements. But, it means that regardless of the pains of life, we know who holds our past, present, and future and that we are secure in Jesus Christ. Once we understand that our overriding purpose in life is to use our God-given talents and abilities to build God’s kingdom here on earth, our priorities and focus on life will serve that purpose. All too often, our sense of significance, purpose, and security is tied to what we do for a living or our family and friends. While we should do our very best in whatever we do for a living and foster strong relationships with family and friends, the only lasting value is what we do in life that will impact others for eternity. Our occupation and calling are to build God’s kingdom. Our job, family, and friends are how we fulfill that occupation. If we have our priorities in life correct, we can be filled with joy every day, regardless of the challenges and obstacles. The key is obedience to the calling of God through Christ Jesus.
“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! This is my commandment: Love each other in the same way I have loved you. There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command. I no longer call you slaves, because a master doesn’t confide in his slaves. Now you are my friends, since I have told you everything the Father told me. You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name. This is my command: Love each other.
