A Joyful and Thankful Spirit – Part 2
Scripture Reference: “Though the fig tree does not bud and there are no grapes on the vines, though the olive crop fails and the fields produce no food, though there are no sheep in the pen and no cattle in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will be joyful in God my Savior”. Habakkuk 3:17-18 NIV
I discovered that joy enhances the flow of new ideas, new concepts, new strategies because joy ventilates the soul. Depression is like the spirit of heaviness. You cannot even think straight – you cannot experience new ideas. But when you are joyful, it ventilates the soul. New ideas will flow, new concepts will flow, and with the new ideas, you have new testimonies, you have new victories and joy have new progress.
I believe with joy we can experience newness of life. Joy allows us to think productively.
I believe as you begin to see in your mind that better days are ahead of you, as you begin to trust God to perfect things that concerns you, your heart will be released from the clashes of depression. New ideas will flourish, and your business will begin to flourish again, your life will gain new direction, and fresh direction and results will follow.
Also, joy guarantees sound health. Many of the ailments around are rooted in depression. Depression is a destroyer of divine health. Depression is a destroyer of destiny. Solomon said in Proverbs, “A merry heart doeth good like medicine, but a broken spirit drieth the bones.” When you are depressed, your health begins to depreciate, it’s time to be joyful.
We can go on and on. All I want to do is to challenge you to cheer up.
Daily digest: “When you do things from your soul, you feel a river moving in you, a joy.”
Prayer: Dear Lord, You are my strength and my redeemer. You are my healer and my provider. Lord, I give all my worries and cares to you. I lay it all at your feet. Fill me with your joy and take away this sadness.
