Proverbs 15:13 – A merry heart maketh a cheerful countenance: but by sorrow of the heart the spirit is broken. (KJV)
In today’s world where things seem to be going wrong regularly, people are more likely to become frustrated and throw in the towel. Be that as it may, as David said in Psalms 30:5b that “weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning”, it is important that you remain prayerful and appreciative of God’s works in your life.
Come to think of it—how much do you pay for the breath in your nostrils and the goodness of God that you enjoy? Not even a dime! Therefore, as seen in our Bible reading, be intentionally happy because being sorrowful will only weaken the spirit. If you listen to other people’s stories, you may discover that your cross is too small compared to what they are experiencing. However, the good news is that God can handle every situation. Whatever you might be going through, I encourage you never to give up but wait on the Lord. He will not be late in reaching out to you, and light will shine at the end of your tunnel.
Hymn: Rejoice, the Lord is King — Charles Wesley (1744)
1. Thank God for the past, new day, the future, and all He is set to do in your life.
2. Father, help me understand Your ways and be patient for my day of glory.
1. Father, everything I need to serve You better in joy, please release it to me.
2. Holy Spirit, make me sensitive to Your move in this season. I refuse to be left out!
3. Father, please let my heaven of breakthrough, helpers, and promotion, open!
4. Father, as an individual, family, nation, and church, please give light to our vision and strength to our weaknesses.
“There is no duty we underrate so much as the duty of being happy.” — R. L. Stevenson.
