Topic: Rejoice In the Lord [Saturday February 25, 2017]
Scripture: Rejoice in the Lord always: and again I say, Rejoice. Philippians 4:4
Thought For The Day: Make up your mind to laugh when the devil wants you to cry.
We have been admonished to fight depression in our lives because depression is the spirit of heaviness (Isaiah 61:3).
Many people are depressed because of the situation of life in which they find themselves.
While some people may be depressed because of their current state of unemployment, others are depressed because of lack of accommodation.
In Habakkuk 3:17-18, the Bible says, Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the Lord, I will joy in the God of my salvation.
Beloved, the key to tackling depression is rejoicing in the LORD despite your situation in life. Just as Habakkuk made up his mind to rejoice in the LORD despite the situation he was passing through, make up your mind also to rejoice in the Lord God of your salvation and let the devil run mad. Make up your mind to laugh when the devil wants you to cry.
Rejoice in the Lord, not in your things. Your joy is most stable when it is placed on the Lord. On the other hand, your joy is never stable when it is placed on things. Rejoice in the Lord and the Lord will take care of the things.
Remember this: Make up your mind to laugh when the devil wants you to cry.
- Make up your mind to fight depression.
Rejoice in the LORD despite your situation in life.
