The devil comes only to steal, kill, and destroy (John 10:10). The devil wants you to be mad and angry and not be happy. If you want to avoid the devil’s bullets of sadness, anger, etc. you have to trust in God. God will be your shield but you need to know components that make up the shield. This can be: prayers, Bible verses, and going to church (although “you should not just go to church but rather go to God”- Tim Ross). If you are entertaining a spirit of the devil you need to kick it out and replace it with something from God.
No matter how tough your situation is, if you trust in God, He will help you break down your wall that is keeping you from reaching His entire glory. The devil will throw everything at us to try to stop us and to make us turn back, whether it is a car accident, a breakup between friends, or even a simple dodgeball in gym class… God will turn you back onto the happy trail if you turn off of His path for you. God wants you to be joyful and not be bothered by something going on in your life. Happiness is temporary, but God’s joy is everlasting.
The pain that you’ve been feeling, can’t compare to the joy that is coming. -- Romans 8:18
This means that no matter what is going on in your life, God is always waiting on the other side to give you His joy.
Admit it this song makes you want to dance. 🙂
