KEY SCRIPTURE: Philippians 4:4 KJV” Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again, I say, Rejoice”.
A JOYFUL heart gives strength to the body. (Nehemiah 8:10b) The blessings of salvation are taken possession of, by joy. (Isaiah 12:3) A JOYFUL heart is one of the fundamental states for the Holy Spirit to manifest and function freely to bring blessings to humanity. (Romans 14:17). Our key scripture instructs us to rejoice always in the Lord. The truth is there cannot be any true joy outside the Lord.
Please note the following things. In the Lord Jesus every promise of scripture is yes. (2nd Corinth 1:20) This means all promises to the Christian is fulfilled in Jesus. This understanding must stir in us great joy. It is no more our righteousness that delivers to us the fulfillment of these promises but purely on the righteousness of Jesus. In our Lord Jesus we have the authority of His name to demand the obedience of every devil or condition and they can’t do either wise but to submit to our demand. In actual fact, in Christ we have a limitless wealth of blessings that put us on top of every situation. (Eph 1:3)
The above provisions in Christ, are among the many reasons why your heart should be consistently joyful, no matter what the devil may be doing. Satan remains an eternally defeated enemy and we are eternally victorious. We have inherited the victory of Jesus over the devil. Now note: that joy is a function of trust. Always remember the simple song
” Trust and obey,
for there is no other way, to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey. “Amen.
I rejoice always in the Lord. In Him I am blessed with all spiritual blessings in heavenly places, I am also more than a conqueror. So long as my faith remains intact, all things are possible with me. May the name of the Lord be praised continually.
Romans 14:17 KJV” For the kingdom of God is not meat and drink; but righteousness, and peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost”.
2 Corinth 1:20 KJV “For all the promises of God in him are yea, and in him Amen, unto the glory of God by us”.
