ACHIEVE GREATNESS WITH YEMI AND BIMBO DAVIDS
Day 11 December 2019
A Joyful and Thankful Spirit – Part 1
Scripture Reference: “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the LORD is your strength.” – Nehemiah 8:10
We have so many benefits of joy. One of them is the fact that joy gives you strength. When you are depressed, you are stifled of energy. When you are depressed, you are often weak. And it takes strength to enjoy victories. It takes strength to implement ideas. It takes strength to achieve greatness.
Remember the words of Nehemiah in the Bible. He said, “Do not be sorry for yourself. For the joy of the Lord is your strength.”
It takes joy to access strength, and it takes strength to enjoy victories.
I know at the beginning of this year, you might have written down so many wonderful things to achieve. And now this is December and you are wondering at the seemingly little progress made. You looked at the long list and then what has been attained, and then like that guy you tell yourself; what is this among so many?
Daily digest: “Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.”
Prayer: Father, I pray that You fill me with the joy of the Lord, that overwhelming joy. Your joy is unlike anything this world has to offer. It brings peace, trust and hope and with that a rest because I know You are in control.
