God wants you to sustain a merry heart as you can receive supernatural communications when 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, in the way God wants you to see it. Many people want to experience God but they haven't learnt the act of rejoicing. They allow 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 situation that is negative, there is the tendency for trouble to affect 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”. In every situation, there is a revelation behind it. For instance, look at John the Baptist, the beloved man of God that prophesied the coming of Jesus, that was His forerunner, a point came when he said “Are you the one to come or should we look for another?” Jesus knew that John had taken offence at him and that was the reason why John was beheaded. When he got into offences and bitterness, he separated from the flow of the life of God that is protective and contains everything that God has. This assures us of the excellent quality of life which Jesus died to make available to us. When we walk in the abundance of this life, we will dominate completely whatever the devil is throwing at mankind. Whenever you observe the devil at work, God is also at work. You should learn to live your life by what God is doing and not what the devil is doing. When you do that, you are going to 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 and I receive the grace to walk in the abundance of the life of God so as to dominate devil’s attacks in Jesus’ name. Amen.
