When we have been bogged down by our fears the last thing we feel is joy. We feel trapped, we feel down, we feel darkness, we feel despair, we feel hopeless.
Yet in the dark streets shineth
the everlasting Light;
The Hope and fears of all the years
Are met in Thee tonight”
But when we are delivered of those fears relief comes, a lightness comes and joy comes! All those fears from all those years are met in Jesus.
Joy comes with the relief, joy comes with the hope. All our fears from all the years are met in Jesus, they are come together in Jesus and He deals with them, He satisfies them, He relieves us of them.
Jesus meets us right where we are, He relieves us from the burden of those fears and brings joy. Joy which no one can take away from us, no-one can rob us of the joy which Jesus brings.
Have you had the burdens of your heart lifted, have you had your fears relieved? Then rejoice, know that deep down joy in Jesus.
My prayer for you this week is that you will know relief from you fears and that you will find joy in Jesus.
