Nehemiah 8:10(KJV)

10. Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our LORD: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength.

You know, there are few things that satan relishes more than a Christian who is in despair over their sins. When a Christian lacks spiritual comfort and joy, the deceiver rejoices because that Christian is under satan’s thumb. He is worthless to the Lord and no threat to satan.

The strength we need to live a godly life comes not from excessive sorrow or despair but from our joy in the Lord. Despair does not promote growth, nor does it promote transformation. Despair does not promote thanksgiving, praise, or worship; Despair knows no victory over temptation and trial. Joy is the power that produces a successful, victorious, fruit-bearing Christian.

Joy should be a part of all that you face, it is a guarantee that the lord will bring you through. We must rejoice in all that we face, the good and the bad. We are blessed of the God when we rejoice in His name even when we are attacked for his name.

Allow the Joy of the Lord, which rests in you, to strengthen you as you go through.

Be blessed in all you do!!

Rev. Sherry Curry
