Rejoice, No Matter What!

Focus: Habakkuk 3:17-18 - KJV

17. Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: 18. Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation.


Job 13:13-16


It is a common thing to hear people say they are rescinded on the possibility of the existence of God. When asked why, they often give a catalogue of woes and pose the question where was God when the woes were happening to them or someone else. For instance, someone may ask “where was God when Dr. Miles Monroe and some members of his family died in an air crash?” Miles Monroe being a renowned preacher and person of God. But God cannot be blamed for any woe that befalls man in any way. Those who are wise would understand like Job and king David that the escape from calamity is not in being distant from God but in drawing closer to Him. For Job, even if He appears to slay us, we should still reverence Him. Truth however is, He slays no one. The mind of God to us is that we rejoice no matter what the enemy hauls at us for the joy of the Lord is the strength of the believer.


The Lord is not served in anyone going through the oppression of the enemy. Neither is He pleased that people’s minds are being turned away from Him by the manipulations and lies of the enemy. That is why He says my people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. True knowledge will give us the understanding of the real actors responsible for our situation per time, and then we would have clear minds on how to relate with our God. If only we will start putting the enemy to shame by living our lives in the joy of the Lord which does not depend on happenstance, then will God be happy with us and come through for us in our situations. The three Hebrew boys in Daniel’s book did not care that they were going to be lit up. They gladly went into it for the confidence they had in God. In the end, they came out unhurt. Rejoice always, even now we say, please rejoice.


SOLUTION: Joy is something that makes the enemy mad and causes him to make mistakes. In whatever you may be passing through, joy, being part of the fruit of the Spirit will set you apart and bring you victory. Rejoice, always and not just momentarily.


Please pray:

·      Give thanks to God for according you joy by His Spirit

·      Let God know that no matter what the devil is trying to achieve with you, God remains your Lord and you will never forsake Him

·      Ask God to strengthen you the more with His joy

·      Violently resist the devil in whatever area he is operating in your affairs currently, by pleading the blood of Jesus against him

·      Ask God to restore your captivity today and do better for you in restoration, than He did for Job
