The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full. John 10:10
I think many of us can so relate to the “get through” feeling that seems to overwhelm and consume us at times.
The enemy definitely wants to convince us that we aren't capable of JOY in all circumstances and that the abundant life isn’t for us, but the Lord tells us quite the opposite!
I don’t care if it’s one day before Thanksgiving break or one hour… He promises JOY in that moment (not happiness because believe me my children were loonies, but constant sustaining joy).
May we constantly choose to stop, pray and beg Him for eyes that realize ABUNDANCE and JOY are available to us TODAY, in THIS place, no matter our current mood, feelings, or anticipation for what may be next.
Believe Him for it…. fight the enemy when he puts any other thought in your mind.
