Count it All Joy


I GUIDE YOU AND teach you, so put your hope in Me all day long.

I guide you according to My truth, and I teach you important lessons as you follow the path I've prepared for you.

Because I am both your Savior and your God, I'm able to help you with the obstacles you will encounter.

Your difficulties can even be blessings when they draw you into deeper dependence on Me.

It is important to have your hope in Me all day long.

It's easy to be confident and trusting sometimes—when you are well rested and things are going smoothly.

However, when things get hectic or unpleasant, you often forget the object of your hope: Me.

Yet this is when you need Me the most!

So make it your goal to keep your eyes on Me all day long.

You won't be able to do this perfectly, but it is a worthy goal—one that gives focus to your thoughts.

It also helps you enjoy My Presence as you go along the path of Life.

'I have set the LORD always before me; because He is at my right hand I shall not be moved. Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; my flesh also will rest in hope. . . . You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore."
—Psalm 16: 8–9, 11 NKJV
