Let the field be joyful, and all that is in it. Then all the trees of the woods will rejoice before the Lord. ~Psalm 96:12
I'm not sure what kind of tree this is.
You may know.
It has the most beautiful, carefree bark I have ever seen.
You might say the tree is clothed in joy.
Wouldn't that be a wonderful way to live?
I think we can...
Paul tells us that the fruit of the Spirit is love, JOY, peace...
James tells us to consider it all JOY when we encounter various trials...
Peter tells us that when we believe in Jesus Christ we are filled with JOY unspeakable and full of glory, even though we have not yet seen him face-to-face...
The next verse in Psalm 96 says..."For He is coming..."
The Bible says every eye will see Him and every knee will bow before Him.
When He does return, it will be a time of great joy for those who know Him.
Do you know Him?
Even the trees will rejoice before the Lord on that day.
I'm looking forward to it!
