Joy Is Your Strength
You need to understand that the enemy is not really after your dreams, your health, or your finances. He’s not primarily after your family. He’s after your joy. The Bible says that “the joy of the Lord is your strength”, and your enemy knows if he can deceive you into living down in the dumps and depressed, you are not going to have the necessary strength – physically, emotionally, or spiritually to withstand his attacks.
When you rejoice in the midst of your difficulties, you’re giving the enemy a black eye. He doesn’t know what to do with people who keep giving the enemy a black eye. He doesn’t know what to do with people who keep giving God praise despite their circumstances. Learn how to smile and laugh. Quit being so uptight and stressed out. Make your choice to enjoy your life to the fullest today.
