“Whatsoever things are true, whatsoever (V8)
It is a fight to keep that precious joy of your salvation. But remember if the devil can’t steal your joy, he can’t steal your goods. Don’t let the devil steal your joy in any way, shape or form. Just because some other sour-faced, depressed Christian doesn’t have any joy operating in his life doesn’t mean you have to live that way too. So how do you keep your joy? You keep it by choosing to be joyful even when you don’t feel like it – most especially when you don’t feel like it, Joy, is not a feeling. Joy is a state of being You can be joyful by faith. Choose to believe God rather than what your mind is trying to tell you or what your soulish feeling are screaming. Remember, you are a spirit; you have a soul, you live in a body. Pull down vain imaginations and keep yourself immersed in the Word.
“whatsoever things are true, whatsoever things are honest, whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure…” (Phil 4:8)
This is a vital key to keeping your joy level up. When a bad report comes, refuse to dwell on it. God’s Word says to think on the good report, change your thinking so you can walk in joy. In these final days there will be plenty of bad reports unleash against God’s people. Joy will put you over them. (Robert Hardon)
