I believe in giving credit where it is due, but I also realize that we sometimes give the devil way too much credit for chaos in our lives. John 10:10 (a) “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.” It is sometimes easier to blame the devil, than to analyze the situation and deal with everything that is dragging us down. I know and fully understand that it can be exhausting to really dig deep in your past and to face your current situation, to be able to take back control. But there comes a time in your life where you need to say “devil, this is enough, you will not steal from me any longer, and I will not allow you to destroy my future!” And the good news is, once we learn to surrender to God and allow God to fully function in our lives, we can experience true joy.
John 10:10 (b) “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” God does not only want to give you joy, He wants to give it to you in abundance. What an awesome promise!
Are you still a victim of your circumstances? Or do you already experience inner joy? An ecstasy for life that does not depend on your surroundings. A gladness that only God can give!
Whenever you feel like your life is erupting in chaos, remember that greater is HE who is in you, than he that is in the world! (1 John 4:4)
