Consider it wholly joyful, my brethren, whenever you are enveloped in or encounter trials of any sort or fall into various temptations. Be assured and understand that the trial and proving of your faith bring out endurance and steadfastness and patience.” James 1:2-3 AMP

The bible says: “We should be joyful not sad when going through trying times.”

God uses our trials to birth patience and confidence in Him, though the target of the enemy is to use our trials to destroy us. That’s why we are commissioned by the Lord to be joyful in Him because at the end of it all we will be strengthened and established in Him lacking nothing on our faith in Christ Jesus.

Then [Ezra] told them, Go your way, eat the fat, drink the sweet drink, and send portions to him for whom nothing is prepared; for this day is holy to our Lord. And be not grieved and depressed, for the joy of the Lord is your strength and stronghold.” Nehemiah 8:10 AMP

It’s time to rejoice and start magnifying the bigness of our God in our lives in Jesus Christ mighty name.

Let’s pray together:

Heavenly Father I thank You for Your word. Your joy in me has become my strength. I will praise and worship You all my days in Jesus Christ mighty name. Amen.
