SOME SERIOUS SOUL SEARCHING
“Your daily word this morning couldn’t come at a better time. I did some soul searching the other day and found I have lost my smile, my inner happiness and the feeling of being carefree. I used to wake up in the morning singing and full of life. I can’t feel any joy and that saddens me terribly and I don’t know how to get it back. What do I do?”
Trust me God knows exactly what you are going through (notice I said going through) and He is determined not to leave you there. He has a fantastic plan and purpose for your life so don’t let what’s going on around you discourage or distract you from receiving all of the good and marvelous blessings God has in store for you. Many times the conditions you have described come just before a blessing. It’s the enemy’s job to discourage us and to keep us from receiving all of the good that is coming our way. John 10:10 – The thief (devil) comes to steal (your joy) kill (your dreams) and destroy (your peace) but It also promises that (Jesus) came so that you may have life and have it in abundance, to the full until it overflows.
PRAYER 4 TODAY
There is a void in each and every person that only God can fill and this can only be filled by faith in His Son Jesus Christ. God showed His unconditional love for us by nailing His only Son on the cross so that through His sacrifice we may receive forgiveness of sin and receive His promise of love, peace, joy, happiness and everlasting life. Without accepting God’s free gift it is impossible to find complete contentment, true happiness, genuine satisfaction or lasting fulfillment in life.

The devil doesn’t want your stuff he wants your joy! The Joy of the Lord is our strength.
