Day 6

weekly truth

from the weekly truth reading plan


Nehemiah 8:10

BY She Reads Truth

Text: Nehemiah 8:10

We long to be a community who not only reads and studies God’s Word, but also writes it on our hearts so we can lean on it throughout our day, speak truth to ourselves and others, call it to mind and have hope.

Today let’s memorize this gem we’ll uncover a little later in our study of Nehemiah:

“And do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”
Nehemiah 8:10b

What a beautiful promise! Jot it down a few times in your journal, tape it by the kitchen window or on your desk at work, save the image below as the lock screen on your phone – do whatever works best for you to allow this truth to sink into your heart and mind as you walk forward in this new week.

    This is my go-to verse when I am frustrated or grieved or overwhelmed. I just completed the SRT study of the Fruit of the Spirit (I know I’m doing these out of order) and this verse fits quite nicely with what I learned there. Joy is of the Lord, it’s a fruit of the Spirit that God manifests in us, we don’t manifest it ourselves. C. S. Lewis viewed Joy as a glimpse of the eternal, of heaven and all that awaits us there. Since learning the true meaning of joy, I pray daily that the Lord would fill my husband with His joy and I found out after beginning to do this that he was praying he same for me! The Lord is our rock, shepherd, fortress and His joy, which we cannot produce ourselves, is our strength! Praise God!

  2. The joy of the Lord is my strength! My strength comes from Christ alone! He is the Anchor of my soul!

    This could not have come at a more perfect time! I just got home from putting my 16 year old dog to sleep. I open up the devo and am amazed how perfect God’s timing is!
