Joy is a battle.
Everyday the enemy strategizes ways to steal our joy. He doesn’t want us living in joy of the Lord, because a joyful Christian is a very dangerous person!
A Christian who daily walks in joy is a Christian whose very countenance testifies of Christ’s love for us.
The power of the Word of God to change us from the inside out is a power unlike any other.
Affirmations that are founded on scripture
have absolutely no power to bring lasting change that will bring healing and stability to our body and soul.
While there are times when a Christian will walk through seasons of sorrow, there can still be a foundation of joy – trust and persuasion that God hasn’t abandoned them and that somehow He will orchestrate this season so that He will be glorified!
