ACHIEVE GREATNESS WITH YEMI AND BIMBO DAVIDS
Day 10 December 2019
The Excited Rule the World!
Scripture Reference: “Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 NIV
Depression makes victims in battle. Joy makes champions. I discovered that gratitude is a function of joy. You cannot achieve greatness if you are not joyful. The excited rule the world! Sometimes I have wondered about the story of Joseph in the prison. He had all the excuses to be depressed and cynical, yet he was joyful enough to notice the challenges of others in the prison. He went out to help them, and that led to his uncommon recommendation in the palace. The rest is history.
Depression and musings will keep you self-centred and you will be missing so much. Have you ever asked yourself? What if Joseph was so self-centred and never bothered to talk to others in the prison? It takes joy to achieve greatness.
Joseph was not selfish. He had all the reasons in the world to be depressed. He was able to come out of the depression and then speak with the other prisoner. That led to his own victory.
Joy will help you to be grateful. I believe joy will help you to achieve greatness.
Daily digest: “They say a person needs just three things to be truly happy in this world: someone to love, something to do, and something to hope for.”
Prayer: My Father, You created me out of joy. When You made me, You said that I am perfect. You made me live a prosperous life, full of happiness and peace.
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.
