God wants you to sustain a merry heart because supernatural communications come as you maintain that merry heart. You only short change yourself when you allow sorrow to get into your heart. Maintain a merry heart and you will walk in great blessings and see things in the positive light the way God wants you to see them. Many people want to experience God but they never rejoice, they allowed their heads to be bowed down by their circumstances. If you can see by revelation the abundance that God has reserved for you, you will begin to sing and release the faith that is going to bring them into manifestation.
When you are in a negative situation, trouble has a tendency of affecting your perspective and that’s why you must learn not to walk by your situation, but by your faith. That is, you walk by revelation and not by situation. Every situation has a revelation behind it. For instance, look at John the Baptist, the beloved man of God that prophesied the coming of Jesus and was His forerunner, He came to a point that he sent a message to Jesus and said, “Are you the one to come or should we look for another?” At that point, Jesus knew that John had taken offence and that was the reason John was beheaded. When he got into offences and bitterness, he separated from the flow of the life of God which is protective and contains everything that God has and which is the quality of life that Jesus has given to us. When we walk in the abundance of this life, we will dominate completely whatever the devil is throwing at mankind. Whatever the devil is doing, there is also something God is doing. And you should learn to live your life by what God is doing and not what the devil is doing. When you do that, you will be full of joy, strong in faith and connected permanently to the power of God.
PRAYER: Lord, open my eyes to see what you are doing whenever the devil is working. I receive the grace to walk in the abundance of the life of God so as to dominate the devil’s throws in Jesus’ name. Amen.
