In Phil 4:4, the bible says we should rejoice in the Lord always. That means even when things gets rough, we still have an obligation to be joyful. If Satan can’t steal your joy he can’t keep your treasures. He may steal from you, but a thief is never the owner of what he steals until the owner decides to let go. The moment you loose your joy to what Satan stole from you, you’ve simply told him to keep what he stole. But when you rejoice – despite the robbery, the anti-robbery angels will intervene and make the thief to return sevenfold of what he stole. Some people came to steal from David, and when he discovered it, he first asked God whether to pursue them or not, and God said he should pursue and overtake them. It takes a joyful heart to ask God such a question.
Don’t loose your joy for anything, but report every situation to God in prayer, supplication with thanksgiving. The same way you report a case to the police is the same way you should report any situation to God, except that you can only get God’s attention with joy, while you get a police man’s attention with a frown. If you take a case to the police with a smile on your face, they won’t attend to you. They may even arrest you!
That’s how far we’d go on today’s Timely Note. But take these last words; GOD ANSWERS THE PRAYER OF THE JOYFUL. IF HE HASN’T ANSWERED YOU, CHECK YOUR JOY LEVEL. DAVID WAS JOYFUL, AND GOD SAID “PURSUE AND OVERTAKE”. Have a most fruitful week! In Jesus precious name!
