The Bible says that we are to bow
our knees before God when we pray. However, if
we are just bowing our knees and not our hearts,
it is in vain.
When we come to God in
prayer we need to come with our hearts lifted up
in joy and praise. Yes, we might be going
through devastating heartache and circumstances
but if we really have the Joy of the Lord in our
hearts, satan can not get the victory over us.
says that the Joy of the Lord is our strength.
There is nothing that you and I can do to
generate that Joy. It is Jesus living in us Who
is the Joy that flows from our hearts.
I was heavy hearted
last night about something that I had heard and
for a while I was really down. Then I started
singing to Jesus and telling Him how much I love
Him. I started laughing out loud because satan
can not win the war because he is already
defeated through the Precious Blood of Jesus. We
may let satan win a battle but he will never win
urge you to let the Joy of Jesus in you overflow
onto all you come in contact with and watch how
Jesus will heal broken hearts and lives.
