Thought of the day:
Joy is one of the most precious treasures of the human mind and personality, a psychological state that each of us seeks to attain at all costs and if possible to access it at any time of our existence.
After all, God Himself motivates us to be happy and with joy in our souls to live a clean, stress-free, anxious life. But, let’s make it fit in with the parameters of holiness (it’s a shame that this is where I went bankrupt).
“Rejoice in the Lord always! I say, ‘Rejoice!’ The Apostle Paul reminds us, insisting that it seems unnatural for a long time, just to somehow convince us that it is not wrong to rejoice, to be happy, but on the contrary.
But man is man … some skeptics would say, thinking of the innate tendency of each of us to always jump the boundaries that have been drawn to us; and they are partly right.
Hardened seekers of the state of happiness and fulfillment we desire throughout our lives, we have begun to build in our own minds alternative paths to the illusory happiness of the moment, one emptied of content but to feed our minds at least here and now.
But by diligently researching God’s Word, we find that true ‘joy’ is generated without exception by the presence of the Holy Spirit of Godhead in man. In fact, one of the immediately visible or more simply ‘fruitful’ effects that the latter brings with itself is the unparalleled ‘joy’, and of which only those who have come to feel the fulfillment and fellowship of the Divinity in their own their lives.
But how God cannot make a common note with the sinful environment is fundamental for each of us to detach ourselves from the mentality of darkness, learning and gradually adopting the mentality of righteousness. Otherwise, the Godhead will move away from us.
