Only a merry heart can praise God effectively.
Without a merry heart, your song remains a noise but with a merry heart even your noise is turned into a joyful noise of praise.
No matter how bad the situation may be, never loose your heart to your present condition because it is not your portion.
Just look up unto # Jesus the author and finisher of our faith who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross.
Never set your eyes on the temporal negatives, there is no situation God cannot change, when man’s energy fails him, then the battle becomes attractive to God but He is not a manipulator or a busy body.
God is at the sidelines just waiting for you to invite Him.
Praise is the mysterious tool for attracting God to take active part in our battles.
2 Chronicles 14:20-22
Father please anoint me with the oil of gladness and take away every spirit of heaviness from me so that I can praise at all times and as I praise you, take over all my battles in Jesus name.
“Blessed is the people that know the joyful sound: they shall work, O LORD, in the light of thy countenance.”
Praises attracts the blessedness of God because those who praise him are entitled to His glorious light which engenders lots of benefits attached to it such as divine guidance, protection, supernatural provision and others.
A joyful heart always does better than a medicine.
Those living in joy are always in God and if you are in God, you are bound to excel.
There is a huge difference between joy and happiness. Happiness comes as a result of your enviroment but joy comes from the inside to impact positively on your enviroment. Joy also happens to be one of the fruits of the spirit.
PRAYER: LORD, please endue me with the spirit of joy so that I can praise you at all times no matter what the situation is in Jesus name.
Being tempted doesn’t make you a sinner but it is your giving heed to it that makes you a sinner.
Temptation comes to every christian on daily basis because even # Christ was also tempted on divers occassions.
God doesn’t tempt people to bring them down but God can test you to prove you.
God already knows you and what you are capable of but He proves you so that you may know yourself, which is a prerequisite for preparing you for your next assignment.
If you fail God’s test, He gives you a another chance, no punishment is attract for failure.
God is ready to give a minimum of seven chances because a just man falleth seven times but riseth again.
The devil is the tempter and he tempts you to bring you down.
God doesn’t allow the devil to tempt you beyond your ability to resist, so if you fall, it is your fault.
Whenever you give heed to the devil, punishments are attracted.
Temptation is just like an election where you choose to vote for # God or the devil.
