Daily word for 20 May 2017 – Nehemiah 8:10
Dear brothers and sisters,
Today I want to encourage you with the words from Nehemiah 8:10 (NIV):
10 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.”
God wants us to enjoy our life, even if circumstances are not what we hoped they would be look for the blessings that God has put in your life and you will see that there is more than enough joy and that the Lord (and Him alone) is our strength.
Also enjoy eating and drinking, but make sure that if you see someone without it and suffer that you share it with her or him. Don’t be holding all for yourself but use your riches to bless and help others.
