Simple Family Devotions #25: Oh, Be Joyful!

What does God want from you today?

One thing we know He wants is for you to experience joy. Stop and think about that. God wants you to be joyful. What a good God!

Unfortunately we are not always very smart about what it means to be joyful or how to pursue joy the right way. So let’s go to God’s Word and let Him teach us more about it.

Look up the following verses and try to observe all you can learn about pursuing joy today.

1.) Philippians 4:4

2.) Galatians 5:22,23

3.) 1 Thessalonians 1:6

4.) Psalm 4:6,7

5.) Romans 15:13

6.) Psalm 19:8

7.) James 1:2-4

8.) 1 Peter 1:6

9.)  John 16:22

In one way or another you are going to look for joy today. But don’t be foolish about it! Let God guide you. What have you learned about joy and how is it going to impact what you do next?
