Strength to Stand Firmly and Joyfully

             Have you had your Joy Juice today?  Enjoy this beautiful Fall morning as you partake of your portion of joy.

            This time of year when we hear the word FALL, we think of the season, AUTUMN.  But we, also, realize that the word “fall” means “to trip or lose your balance”.  One dictionary’s definition is:  To drop or come down freely under the influence of gravity.”

            Let’s consider what “fall” means in the spiritual context.  Maybe our definition would be something like to “drop or come down under the influence of sin”. We are in a continual battle.   Our enemy does not want us standing boldly for Christ.  He wants us to “fall” and fail!

             Proverbs 11:28 says: “Whoever trusts in his riches will fall, but the righteous will thrive like a green leaf.”   Be aware that Satan can use good things that we consider “riches” to draw us away from God.  Having nice things is not a sin; but when we begin to trust in our material wealth to make us happy rather than trusting God to supply our needs, we get out of balance and may fall.

            Let’s aim toward righteousness by trusting in the Lord and putting Him above all things.  Stand firmly and joyfully with eyes focused on Jesus!

            Drink your Joy Juice in order to have strength to stand firm in Christ.
