Secrets of True July
SCRIPTURE: …neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the Lord is your strength. – Nehemiah 8:10b
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: In order to be in good health, you must maintain your joy.
Living in the state of permanent joy, celebration and excitement is God’s Will for His children. Joy is an asset of non-quantifiable worth as far as spirituality is concerned (Galatians 5:22).
From the Scripture above, God admonishes us not to be sorrowful in life because His Joy is our strength. One primary target of the devil is attacking the joy of God’s people because he knows that your joy is literally your live wire.
The Necessity of Joy
1. Joy is the fuel for supernatural strength
Your joy is the fuel for stamina, energy, strength, resilience, indefatigability, indomitability and “unfightability”. Joy is needed for strength in order to withstand the battles of life (Proverbs 24:10)
2. Joy is the tonic for health
It is clear from the scripture above that your joy is needed for a sound health (Proverbs 17:22). In order to be in good health, you must maintain your joy. Oppression rises on the platform of depression. This is why the enemy attacks your joy in order to attack your health, thereby, attacking your life.
The Joy of the Lord is your strength in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: In order to be in good health, you must maintain your joy.
1. Never allow the enemy to determine your joy. Do everything you can to keep your joy intact.
2. Always confront your problems with your praise and thanksgiving.
PRAYER: O LORD, I ask for the grace to live in Your Joy always. Help me LORD, to praise You at all times in Jesus’ Name
