Poor yet rich

The meek shall obtain fresh joy in the LORD, and the poor among mankind shall exult in the Holy One of Israel. – Isaiah 29:19

God does not forget the poor, afflicted, humble, weak, needy. They receive fresh joy that takes them above their unfavorable circumstances. They have little of this world but they have their Lord. Is there a greater richness?

Fresh joy in the Lord

The poor, afflicted, needy

Rejoice in their God

Lord, you refresh me with your joy. Though I have much or little, I can rejoice in what you have given. Thank you for your refreshment.
