But let all those that put their trust in thee rejoice: let them ever shout for joy, because thou defendest them: let them also that love thy name be joyful in thee. For thou, Lord, wilt bless the righteous: with favor wilt thou compass him as with a shield. Psalm 5:11-12
~ Who is greater than our Lord? No other! When you trust God you do rejoice because you see the results. We can even rejoice before it happens because we know it’s just a matter of time. He is our shield and our deliverer. No weapon formed against us shall prosper! (Isaiah 54:17)
So why are so many Christians lacking the joy of the Lord? Many Christians let the experiences of life change their heart. Sure there are tragedies, there are difficulties, there is stress and much more but we can’t let those things bring us down. We need to press in and don’t give up! We are not losers, we are victorious in Christ.
The bible says neither give place to the devil. (Ephesians 4:27) Sad truth is we give the devil easy access in to our life. Through anger, depression, vengeance, bitterness, strife and on and on. Let’s be smarter because the truth is we are. Let’s focus more on good things, envision victory, praise God daily (whether you “feel” like it or not) and you will be an example of a Christian that others want to follow.
Have a blessed day and smile more!
