The earth is the LORD’s, and all its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein. For He has founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the waters.

Who may ascend into the hill of the LORD? Or who may stand in His holy place?

He who has clean hands and a pure heart, who has not lifted up his soul to an idol, nor sworn deceitfully.

He shall receive blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

This is Jacob, the generation of those who seek Him, who seek Your face. Selah

Lift up your heads, O you gates! And be lifted up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in.

Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.

Lift up your heads, O you gates! Lift up, you everlasting doors! And the King of glory shall come in.

Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, He is the King of glory. Selah    Psalm 24

…neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength. Nehemiah 8:10

In Acts 2:28 we read: “Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance (Your Presence).

This word “joy” from the Greek euphrosune is rooted in its meaning – to be in a “right mind” – for us – the mind of Christ.

Then, in Isaiah 26: 3 & 4 we are told:

Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee: because he trusteth in Thee. Trust ye in the LORD for ever: for in the LORD JEHOVAH is everlasting strength…

We see “mind” is used again. Whose mind is stayed on Thee (God) has strength.

Mind on Him = Peace
Mind on Him = Strength
His Countenance (Presence) = Joy

Jesus = Peace, Strength, Joy

The Joy of our Strength is not a WHAT but rather a WHO.

The joy of knowing Christ Jesus is our strength!
