I am not a huge superhero movie fan, but I am friends with someone who is. There’s one superhero that has a shield that gets him out of nearly every scrape, made out of other-worldly material that can stand up to whatever is thrown its way.
While we might not have a superhero’s shield, we have someone so much better than that. We have a Lord who we can trust and can be the source of our joy! Psalm 28:7 ESV tells us, “The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.” Psalm 33:21 ESV adds “For our heart is glad in him, because we trust in his holy name.”
We have reason to rejoice and be glad because our God is so trustworthy! We can find our joy in the One who protects us, helps us, and loves us. We can trust Him with the plans for our lives even when we don’t agree with what just happened in our lives. We can rest in Him and find peace, gladness, hope, and joy.
Look to Him today!
Thanks for joining me on this journey of finding joy. Today was Who, part 2: Trust. Tomorrow we will look at why we should have joy!
