(God Wants You Living Joyfully Always)
TO THE BIBLE: 1 Timothy 6:17 GNB
“Command those who are rich in the things of this life not to be proud, but to place their hope, not in such an uncertain thing as riches, but in God, who generously gives us everything for our enjoyment.”
Jesus said whenever you ask anything in His Name, He’ll give it to you so your joy may be full (John 16:23-24). This means you can have anything you want! There’s no reason for you to be in lack as a child of God. Take pride in your Heavenly Father.
People shouldn’t ask if it’s your birthday or some other special occasion just because you’re dressed well and looking good. If the Lord would clothe the lilies of the field in such beauty and splendour, how much more you, His child!
When you’re happy, excited, smiling, laughing, singing, and whistling joyfully, people shouldn’t wonder if you just hit the jackpot—that ought to be your lifestyle!
This doesn’t mean some people won’t ask. They will because it’s unusual to them, but you should exude the joy of the Spirit everywhere you are. Why? God has given you all things richly to enjoy, and you know it!
The Lord said, “…every beast of the forest is Mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills…the world is Mine, and all its fullness” (Psalm 50:10-12). He also said, “The silver is mine and the gold is mine…” (Haggai 2:8 NIV).
Who do you think He prepared all these things for? His kids of course! That’s why nothing is too good for you to have and enjoy. So, refuse to think or act small. Make up your mind to enjoy the glorious life God has called you to in all its fullness.
2 Peter 1:3
The Lord has glorified me, and I’m not small. Therefore, I refuse to think or act small. I think big and I do big things. I walk in supernatural prosperity and enjoy my glorious inheritance in Christ Jesus today, and every day. Hallelujah!
