Return to the place of your strength; return to your joy in Me. Many are worn down by the enemy’s attacks, and your confession fails to align with My Word. Remember, My joy is your strength. Choose to rejoice over complaining; victory over defeat and declare it! When you choose joy in adversity, it differentiates you from those whose anger and bitterness define them. Those who want to wallow in the flesh rather than the joy of serving Me are operating outside of My Kingdom principles –righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Ghost – and I cannot bless it.
Rom. 14:16-18, “Do not let your good be spoken of as evil; for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. For he who serves Christ in these things is acceptable to God and approved by men.” NKJV
Rom. 12:9-12, “Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer…” NKJV
Ps. 118:24, “This is the day the LORD has made; we will rejoice and be glad in it.” NKJV
