SATURDAY, APRIL 18
You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy, at Your right hand there are pleasures forevermore.— Psalm 16:11 (AMPC)
From the book Starting Your Day Right – by Joyce Meyer
Many times, we get upset about things that end up never happening. Sometimes Satan likes to get us anxious about things that aren’t even real problems, or things that haven’t even happened yet. Jesus said,
The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows) (John 10:10 AMPC).
The Bible says that the kingdom of God is righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit (see Romans 14:17). When we make Jesus the Lord of our life, we have joy in our hearts. Satan has no right to steal from you today, so enjoy the peaceful, abundant life that Jesus paid for you to have!
Prayer Starter: Father, give me the strength to say no to worry and anxiety today. Thank You for paying such a high price so I could live a peaceful, abundant, full life! In Jesus’ Name, amen.
