7 Bible Verses For The Days You Really Need More Joy And Gladness!Jul 16, 2020
It’s so simple, but easy to forget sometimes…. God is the source of eternal hope, life, and salvation.
A person is not righteous in God’s eyes because of his or her ability to keep the law perfectly. You and I are considered “righteous” because we are God’s chosen people and we put our faith in Him, daily. That alone keeps me filled to the brim with gratitude and happiness. Below are a few verses to reflect on if you’ve been lacking hope, gladness, or joy lately. Please read them slowly and think deeply about the Lord. I pray they wash over you and that your soul will soon feel comforted, secure, and loved.
Psalm 16: 8-11
I keep my eyes always on the Lord, with him at my right hand, I will not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices; my body also will rest secure, because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead, nor will you let your faithful one see decay. You make known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.
Psalm 15: 11
My joy may be in you and your joy may be complete.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Psalm 30: 5
For his anger lasts only a moment, but his favor lasts a lifetime; weeping may stay for the night, but rejoicing comes in the morning.
Philippians 4: 11-13
I have learned to be content whatever the circumstances. I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. I can do all this through him who gives me strength.
The precepts of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes.
Psalm 34: 18
The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit. The righteous person may have many troubles, but the Lord delivers him from them all.
