HE WHO LAUGHS LAST…
Don't sell your joy! It might interest you to know that even the devil likes to be joyful; and that is why he tries so hard to steal our resources.
Stealing, killing and destroying the resources of people naturally makes him joyful. But he also knows that he can't stop you from accessing God's blessing when your joy is intact.
The devil is seriously contending for the last laugh. Anytime he sees you laughing, he starts gnashing his teeth. Remember that it's he who laughs last that laughs best.
Jesus preferred to suffer than to give up his later joy. He had a mental picture of Himself laughing at the end. I'm sure that the devil was gnashing his teeth when Jesus ascended to heaven, because the bible says "they that sit in heaven shall laugh". Furthermore, the bible says Jesus made a show of the devil; and making a show of a person is the same as making a mockery of the person.
Every opportunity to get angry, complain, or display wrath is a sign that the devil is trying to trade with your joy. We need to be watchful; God loads us with benefits daily, but we're not sure which part of our day we'd receive the blessing. And from experience, it is usually the same period when the devil tries to steal our joy.
You should know that the devil won't trouble you when there is nothing troubling him around you. He does not waste time on unprofitable people, he will only come to you when there is a blessing in you. Honestly, instead of getting angry at him, you should thank him for alerting you for the coming blessings.
Let me conclude with this; your joy is not for sale. You need it to draw water out of the Wells of salvation. May God give us understanding!
God bless you, I love you, and don't forget to share!
