Choose Joy

“The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusts in him, and he helps me. My heart leaps for joy, and with my song I praise him” Psalms 28:7, NIV.

My sister, I declare over you right now the joy of the Lord! No matter what challenges come your way, I declare you you will stir up the joy of the Lord like never before through your praise, and you will be strengthened. You will rest in knowing you don’t have to have perfect circumstances to have joy. Joy is flowing like a river from your Father’s presence to you. Oh, you will walk in the joy of the Lord like never before. You will say by faith, “HA! HA! HA! Jesus has conquered all of my enemies! HA! HA! HA! Jesus has given me the victory!” Your Father in heaven loves you very much, and He is wiping your tears and filling you with His joy right now. No one will be able to bring you down. The challenges we all face are temporary, but our heavenly Father is eternal. He is a good Father, and He is working everything out for your advantage, my sister. That alone will give you joy, and that joy will be your abiding strength!

Prayer: Father, you are the center of my joy and my life. You are the reason I smile and the reason I sing. As you fill me with your joy, I ask that you let it bless everyone around me. Use me to brighten someone’s day, not cast a gloomy cloud over them. Use me to refresh others, not bring them down. Use me to shine for you and give people hope, all for your glory. Put a song in my heart and a pep in my step. Help me laugh more. Brighten my countenance because you are good. In Jesus’ name, Amen.

“I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow!” John 15:11, NLT

  1. Thank you Lord, I choose joy. Even when my family is not on my side. Even if I am not where I want to be in life with career and love I choose you Lord. I choose you Lord because you are the only one that can bring me true joy and peace the rest will be added.

    I want to pray for my family that all of the boundage will be broken because the Devil is trying to take the joy and peace but I choose to trust you God.

    God while you working on me send whispers to my family members so that you can help them too. Soften their hearts so they can see and hear you clearly. I know I cannot do it on my own.

    My joy is here and no Devil in hell can take that away from me. Fix my family please Lord because I know if I have you I am not alone but I would love for my family to be on one accord especially my oldest brother in Jesus Name. Amen.
