Joy is the flag bearer for victory. Once you see the joy, you are sure there is victory in the house. The same is true with sadness and sorrow. Their presence signifies their work. Great joy works to bring about more joy, peace and victory. Same goes with sorrow. It works to establish failure, anxiety, doubt and worry. Joy and peace is a significant release of faith. Sorrow, anxiety and worry greatly releases doubt and defeat.
Focus your prayer life on the things you desire. Focus your lifestyle on the things that bring you to where you want to go, then release the power of your faith by walking in joy. The joy of the Lord is your strength. Releasing that joy is a release of the strength of God. Deliberately release joy on a daily basis to accompany your faith. Don’t restrict your faith inside you by refusing to release joy. Your faith is a great power that is triggered by your joy. Live a faith-filled life by living a joyful life.
SCRIPTURE READING: Hebrews 11:1-10
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. For by it the elders obtained a good testimony. By faith we understand that the worlds were framed by the word of God, so that the things which are seen were not made of things which are visible.
DEVOTION PRAYER: My loving Father, I thank you for you have filled me with joy. I walk in the abundance of peace and joy every day. Thank you! For you renew my strength every morning. Amen.
