Joyful Medicine

 

There is healing in joy, and God’s Word tells us that He gives us His own joy to deliver us from heaviness, to strengthen us, and to work as a medicine in our bodies and souls:


“Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say, Rejoice!”  (Philippians 4:4).


“Weeping may last for the night, but a shout of joy comes in the morning.” (Psalm 30:5).


“Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing; thou hast loosed my sackcloth and girded me with gladness.”  (Psalm 30:11).


“The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has anointed me to bring good news to the afflicted … to bind up the brokenhearted, to comfort all who mourn … giving them the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a spirit of fainting.”  (Isaiah 61:1-3).


“Do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is our strength.”  (Nehemiah 8:10).


“A joyful heart is good medicine.”  (Proverbs 17:22).
