For the joy of the Lord is your strength (Nehemiah 8:10)
In Psalms, David said, “I will bless the Lord at all times. His praise shall continually be in my mouth.” At all times means in the good times as well as the tough times. The Bible tells us to stay full of joy no matter what we are facing.
The joy of the Lord is our source of strength and the enemy knows it. He knows that if he can get you down and discouraged, before long, you’ll be weak and feeble and he will be able to easily defeat you.
When you are full of joy and have a good attitude, you keep yourself strong. That positive attitude of faith paves the way for God to work miracles in your life —- it paves the way for God to turn your situation around!
Decide today to have a good attitude. Keep yourself full of His joy by meditating on the goodness and promises of God. Be full of the joy of the Lord! You’ll soon experience supernatural strength and discover the victorious life God has planned for you!
Dear Father, thank you for filling my life with joy. Thank you that I am blessed and cannot be cursed. Thank You that in all things You cause me to triumph. Thank you for your strength within me that comes from that joy. I bless You today and rejoice in your goodness.
When you wake up each morning, God sends you a special delivery of joy. It’s like it comes knocking at the door of your heart every day. The problem is that some people never answer the door. It’s right there, month after month, year after year saying, “Come on! Let me in! You can be happy! You can cheer up! You can enjoy your life!” The way to answer the door is to get up and choose an attitude of faith and expectancy by declaring that “today is going to be a good day.” When you start the day like that, you are choosing to receive the gift of joy that God sent to you.
Today, make up your mind to answer the door to joy! Get up every morning and say, “Father, thank You for another beautiful day. I’m going to be happy. I’m going to enjoy this day because You are faithful. I’m going to brighten someone else’s life. I am choosing to receive Your gift of joy and passing it on to others because I love You, and I know that I am called for Your purposes!”
