The Fruit of the Spirit is love, joy.. (Galatians 5:22a)
Continuing my thoughts about praying the spiritual character of the Spirit I land upon joy this morning. I am reminded how the scripture speaks of sorrow being turned into joy.. and of how the joy of the Lord is our strength. Life is hard and can often suck the joy out of us.. we need to pray it back.
Father, the scripture says that the redeemed of the Lord will return with rejoicing and sorrow and mourning will flee. We return to you today Lord.. fill our hearts with joy.. replace sorrow with joy.. cause rejoicing to spring forth in our hearts.
