Psalm 19:7-11
7The law of the Lord is perfect, restoring the [whole] person; the testimony of the Lord is sure, making wise the simple. 8The precepts of the Lord are right, rejoicing the heart; the commandment of the Lord is pure and bright, enlightening the eyes. 9The [reverent] fear of the Lord is clean, enduring forever; the ordinances of the Lord are true and righteous altogether. 10More to be desired are they than gold, even than much fine gold; they are sweeter also than honey and drippings from the honeycomb. 11Moreover, by them is Your servant warned (reminded, illuminated, and instructed); and in keeping them there is great reward.

Psalm 118:14-17
14The Lord is my Strength and Song; and He has become my Salvation. 15The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tents and private dwellings of the [uncompromisingly] righteous: the right hand of the Lord does valiantly and achieves strength! 16The right hand of the Lord is exalted; the right hand of the Lord does valiantly and achieves strength! 17I shall not die but live, and shall declare the works and recount the illustrious acts of the Lord.

Psalm 21:1-6
1The king [David] shall joy in Your strength, O Lord; and in Your salvation how greatly shall he rejoice! 2You have given him his heart's desire and have not withheld the request of his lips. Selah [pause, and think of that]! 3For You send blessings of good things to meet him; You set a crown of pure gold on his head. 4He asked life of You [God], and You gave it to him--long life forever and evermore. 5His glory is great because of Your aid; splendor and majesty You bestow upon him. 6For You make him to be blessed and a blessing forever; You make him exceedingly glad with the joy of Your presence.

1 Chronicles 16:8-11
8O give thanks to the Lord, call on His Name; make known His doings among the peoples! 9Sing to Him, sing praises to Him; meditate on and talk of all His wondrous works and devoutly praise them! 10Glory in His holy Name; let the hearts of those rejoice who seek the Lord! 11Seek the Lord and His strength; yearn for and seek His face and to be in His presence continually!

Jude 1:24-25
24 Now to Him [Jesus] Who is able to keep you without stumbling or slipping or falling, and to present [you] unblemished (blameless and faultless) before the presence of His glory in triumphant joy and exultation [with unspeakable, ecstatic delight]— 25 To the one only God, our Savior through Jesus Christ our Lord, be glory (splendor), majesty, might and dominion, and power and authority, before all time and now and forever (unto all the ages of eternity). Amen (so be it).

During these past five days, we looked at around 30 Bible passages all having to do with the rejoicing, joy, peace, hope and the vibrant life that your Father, God, desires for you.

Your enemy, satan, wants to destroy your life, and if he cannot succeed in destroying you physically, he will do all he can ― especially through tactics of fear ― to steal joy, peace, and hope from your life. Fear not only steals your joy, peace, and hope, but it causes you to endure through your life instead of live through your life.

The way to battle the darkness is to take your eyes off your circumstances and focus your attention on the One Who defeated satan for all of eternity ― Jesus.

Throughout the New Testament of the Bible, over 250 verses tie Jesus with vibrant, thriving Life. He named Himself the Resurrection and the Life; the Bread of Life; Light of the World; Living Water; and the Way, the Truth, and the Life; among many other descriptive Names.

The Life undergirding these Names offer infinite, eternal promise for you, individually.

God sent Jesus and Holy Spirit to you as strategically as a military general sends troops to the front lines of battle. God did this so that you could be restored to the Father-child relationship with Him for which you were created.

Jesus laid down His life so that you could live eternally. All true life is found in accepting the sacrifice of Jesus. When Jesus died, the Bible says that He triumphed over sin, sickness, death, and over all the powers of darkness.

Jesus alone holds the keys to light, joy, hope, peace, all excellence, to vibrant life on this earth, and to the richer-than-can-be-imagined blessings of eternal life.

Reread Acts 2:28 and Jude 1:24-25. Your Father God is inviting you to experience that level of infinite, eternal joy ― and that experience is God’s will for you.

How will you respond to your Father God’s invitation into eternal joy, peace, hope, light, and life?

Acts 2:28
28You [God] have made known to me the ways of life; You will enrapture me [diffusing my soul with joy] with and in Your presence.
