Devotion for Today
Think of a bird singing in the rain. Despite the storm, it continues to sing its beautiful song, undeterred by the conditions around it. Its joy is not dependent on its circumstances, but on something deeper, something unchanging.
In Romans 14:17, we’re reminded that the kingdom of God is not about external things, but about righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. This joy is not dependent on our circumstances, just like the bird’s song is not dependent on the weather. It’s a deep, abiding joy that comes from knowing we are loved and accepted by God, and that we are part of His eternal kingdom.
This Kingdom joy is not just for us to keep; it’s for us to share. As we experience God’s love and grace, our joy overflows, touching the lives of those around us and reflecting the beauty of the kingdom of God.
So, let’s embrace this Kingdom joy. Regardless of our circumstances, let’s choose to rejoice in the Lord, to find joy in His presence, and to share this joy with others. Like the bird singing in the rain, let’s allow our joy to be a testament to the unchanging love and faithfulness of our King.
