of salvation. Isaiah 12:3
Joy is in the inside, it draws strength from God. Joy is
not a function of happenings, but it is the experience
new birth. See David prayed and asked God "to restore
unto him the joy of thy salvation".
If you lose your joy is like loosing all.
In Nehemiah - "Then he said unto them, Go your way,
eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions
them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is
unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the
LORD is your strength." (Nehemiah 8:10).
This was his charge to the people of God, after series
threat from the enemies that ruined the wall of
Jerusalem. See-"For they all made us afraid, saying,
Their hands shall be weakened from the work, that it
not done. Now therefore, O God, strengthen my
hands." (Nehemiah 6:9).
If the enemies can take your joy, they can crush you.
But we are not to give the ememy a foothold. One of
weapon to deal with the enemy is that when face with
oppositions, storms, don't be moved, as apostle Paul
said "in nothing be terrified by your adversary"
If you refuse to cry when your heart is overwhelm
sorrows, you put the enemy and the world in great
confussion, they can't interpret you.
As you mark this your special day,the significance of
addition will never elude you. It is your season to
glow and do valiantly in all areas.
and succeed, what took others decades you will
achieve in days.
A gleeful birthday to you.
