Remain Joyful
 

SATURDAY
JUNE. 23

   
 

Joel 1:12, Philippians 4:4, Nehemiah 8:10b (NLT)
"The vine is dried up, and the fig tree languisheth; the pomegranate tree, the palm tree also, and the apple tree, even all the trees of the field, are withered: because joy is withered away from the sons of men. *Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. *…Don't be dejected and sad, for the joy of the LORD is your strength!”


Author PhotoDo you know that the level of joy in your heart determines the level of increase and productivity you experience in every area? This is one reason why you should never allow any single thing to affect the joy that God has given you in Christ. By the wisdom of God, Prophet Habakkuk said though he is not yet seeing the results or productivity that he is expecting in his life, he will continue to rejoice in the Lord his God. Doing this guaranteed him strength and speed to overcome his challenges, Hab. 3:17-19. You will continue to be strong and flourish in God as you remain hopeful and joyful in God.

There will be so many things in life that will attempt to steal, kill and destroy your joy, but you must decide not to allow them to. The Bible says many are the afflictions of the righteous but the Lord delivers him from them all, Psa.34:19. Romans 8:37 says nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. In the midst of all those things you must never forget that God wants you to always have fullness of joy in His presence, Psa.16:11. Let God's joy overflow from your life into the lives of others and help to bring others out of any pit of sorrow or depression that they may be in. Learn how to encourage yourself in the Lord (1Sam.30:6) and to deliberately rejoice in the Lord. Jesus is Lord and His power and glory reign in your life and situation. No matter what your situation looks like, it will bow and confess that Jesus is Lord. Rejoice about God's love, His promises, His presence and His mighty power at work in your life. In God you have so many things to remain joyful for. Remain joyful and you will keep flourishing.

PRAYER GUIDE: Praise and worship God now for who He is and for His great love, promises, presence and power at work in your life.
