KEY SCRIPTURE: James 1:2 KJV” My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations”;
Human nature can’t be naturally joyful when faced with distressing moments. The Bible according to our key scripture instructs us to count it all joy or be joyful when we encounter divers’ challenges. Christians are not mere humans, according to 1st Corinth 3:3AMP. Dear child of God, you are not a mere man, you have been made in the nature of our Lord Jesus. Eph 2:10 KJV “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them”.
Joy is the character of love which is the fruit of the Spirit. The Christian would naturally manifest joy when he lives by revelation knowledge. This is living according to the word of God. Decide from now that you would not allow anything to put you down. Romans 8:28 declares that” and we know that all things work together for good to them that love the Lord……. ” Listen and adhere to the following admonishing of scripture Phi 4:4 KJV “Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again, I say, Rejoice”.
The Holy Spirit instructs us to rejoice in the Lord always. Every instruction of scripture carries within it the ability to do it. The moment you whole heartedly accept what the Bible says, with a ready mind to do what it says, you receive from that moment a supernatural power to obey. Respond this way, and say, from this moment, I would always rejoice in the Lord, no matter what happens. I also receive the ability to rejoice always. Thank you, Lord Jesus.
I rejoice always and under all circumstances. My lord is king and Lord above all things. In His name I am more than a conqueror. All things are possible with me because I believe. Nothing shall put me down, this is why I would never be put down but would forever be joyful to the glory of God”.
Isaiah 12:3 KJV” Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation”
Galatians 5:22 KJV” But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, long suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,”
