Have you had your Joy Juice today? Look carefully into the Word of God so that you will be enlightened and will be able to recognize God’s gifts of joy in your life.
When Goliath came against the Israelites, the soldiers all thought, “He’s so big we can never kill him!” But young David had a different perspective. He looked at the same giant and thought, “He’s so big, I can’t miss.” The eyes of David’s heart were enlightened; he was focused on the truth that God was with Him… and with God, nothing is impossible. He had an unwavering faith in a mighty God that he knew would not desert him.
We will never be totally affected and changed until the eyes of our heart are enlightened. When truth is moved from the head down to the heart, it grips the emotions; then the will is properly motivated. That is when we begin to grow spiritually.
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be terrified; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go."
May we be faithful in our prayers…even when things appear impossible! Ask God to strengthen your faith and enlighten the eyes of your heart. Faithful prayer shortens one of the longest distances known by humanity which is the distance between our head and our heart.
