Moments Of Faith Daily Devotional 6 November 2023 By Prophet Frank Udoh

Title: “The Joy of the Lord

Scripture Reading: Nehemiah 8:10 (NIV)

“Nehemiah said, ‘Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.'”

In moments of celebration and worship, we find strength and joy in the presence of the Lord. Today, we delve into Nehemiah 8:10 and explore the profound truth that the joy of the Lord is our source of strength.

A Day of Holiness:
This verse is a reminder that certain days are set apart as holy to the Lord. On such days, it’s appropriate to rejoice and celebrate.

The Joy of the Lord:
The source of our strength and joy is not found in circumstances but in the presence of the Lord. As we delight in Him, our hearts are filled with His joy.

Sharing with Others:
Nehemiah also encourages us to share our blessings with those who have less. It’s an act of love and generosity that magnifies the joy of the Lord.

Heavenly Father, we thank you for the joy that comes from your presence. May we find strength in the joy of the Lord, and may we share that joy and our blessings with those in need. Help us to celebrate the days that are holy to you. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
