Choose Joy

Scripture

“This is the day the LORD has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it.”
(Psalm 118:24, NLT)

Word

Happiness isn’t just a random feeling; happiness is a choice. It’s a decision that we have to make each and every day. All throughout life, you’re going to have plenty of opportunities to lose your joy. We all go through disappointments. We all have times when things don’t go our way. It’s easy to let circumstances make us sour and dejected until we end up just going through the motions of day-to-day living. But if you’re going to live in victory, if you’re going to thrive the way God intends, you’ve got to make the decision that you’re going to enjoy your life. You can choose to be happy in spite of your circumstances, every single day.

Today, remember, this is the day that the Lord has made! Rejoice and be glad in it! As you choose joy, you are tapping into His strength which will carry you to victory all the days of your life!

Prayer

“Father, thank You for another day to bless and serve You. I choose to rejoice no matter what comes my way. Thank You for Your peace and strength to overcome in every area of my life in Jesus’ name! Amen.”

(Joel & Victoria Osteen)

Speak to Your Mountains

Scripture

“So Jesus answered and said to them, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt…if you say to this mountain, “Be removed and be cast into the sea,” it will be done.’”
(Matthew 21:21, NKJV)

Word

We’ve all had seasons when the challenges of life feel overwhelming. During those times, it’s easy to be tempted to talk about how bad things are. Maybe you received a bad medical report, or maybe you’re facing a financial obstacle. The more you talk about something, the bigger it becomes in your mind. Instead, you’ve got to dig your heels in and say, “No, I am not going to give life to that defeat. I am not going to speak sickness over myself. I’m not going to speak lack. I’m not going to speak fear. I’m choosing a different report. I believe the report of the Lord which says that I am blessed. I am favored. I am prosperous. I am healthy. I am whole. I’m a victor, not a victim.”

Remember, even if you don’t see how things could ever work out, God does. You’ve got to speak to those mountains in your life and declare favor over those situations. Instead of talking to God about how big your problems are, talk to your problems about how big your God is! As you speak to your mountains, they will be moved, and you will move forward into the victory God has prepared for you!

Prayer

“Father, thank You for Your Word which is life to my spirit. I receive Your strength today and choose to speak to the mountains so I can move forward in the victory You have in store for me in Jesus’ name. Amen.”
