James 1:2

Consider it pure joy when you face trials

WHY?

Because Jesus did, as I wrote yesterday, pure joy is the joy given to us by the Holy Spirit, the joy we wouldn’t naturally feel but which we can call on God for. It is also released by our choice to embrace it

IT CONFUSED THE ENEMY THE JOY DESTROYER

If we can walk in joy and peace through trials and enemy attacks,

That in itself makes us overcomers. If you are being attacked, it means the enemy sees you as a threat.

BECAUSE THE JOY OF THE LORD STRENGTHENS US

We can be strong and faith-filled in spite of the storms.

JOY ALSO COMES AS A FRUIT OF THE SPIRIT

This fruit grows in our lives through our close walk with Jesus, as we look into His face, we reflect Him and His glory.

Is it hard to do this? Yes, it can be but, yes IT IS WORTH IT.
