HAVING A JOYFUL SPIRIT AND ATTITUDE

Sometimes we can wake up and start the day and for whatever reason do not feel very joyful. Maybe nothing really bad has even happened but for some unknown reason you feel like you are in a blahed out mood  of some sort. The enemy, Satan, does not want to have believers be joyful. After all in John 10:10 it says "he, the enemy , comes to steal, kill, and destroy." He wants to rob us of our joy and thus hurt our witness to others or our effectiveness as a Christian.Satan wants to destroy our happiness, our joyful attitude and to make us miserable.  You just have to get up and say out loud, "This is the day the Lord has made, I will rejoice and be glad in it!" (Psalm 118:24). Proverbs 15:15 (The Message version)says " A miserable heart means a miserable life;a cheerful heart fills the day with song. " It makes a lot of since. Wake up, get out of bed and face the day the good or the bad. Ask God to help and resist the enemy and he will flee from you. (See James 4:7).

PRAYER: Lord if anyone reading this is going through a sad day or pity party day I ask that you bring your joy into their hearts. Comfort them and help them know that you are only a prayer away. Keep them focused on good things on not the cares of the world. In Jesus Name. Amen.
