The Lord knows the trials we face. During hardship, our happiness may waver, but we must remember that the Lord will meet our needs. We can rely on the Lord and earnestly seek Him (Psalm 40:16) when faced with tough circumstances. God will not disappoint us. He is dependable, and can turn our sorrows into joy (Jeremiah 31:13). His joy can strengthen us to persevere through difficult times.
Say it out loud: The joy of the Lord is my strength
(READ NEHEMIAH 8:10)
