Today's Word of Encouragement from Wayne:
"Every man of Judah and Jerusalem returned with Jehoshaphat at their head, returning to Jerusalem with joy, for the Lord had made them to rejoice over their enemies"
2 Chronicles 20:27
Has the thought of the Lord made you to rejoice in Christ yet today? What makes the difference in our lives between defeat and victory? Our Lord Jesus Christ. What makes the difference within us between despair and joy? The presence of our Lord Jesus Christ. "Christ in you" the apostle Paul wrote, is our hope of glory (Colossians 1:27). Because Jesus Christ is in us, therefore victory is in us, for Christ has won the victory- over sin, death, and separation from God. Because Jesus Christ is in us, therefore joy is in us; "My joy," as our Savior declared, "so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full" (John 15:11).
Let us gratefully declare our true spiritual identity and reality, that "the Lord has made us to rejoice over our enemies." Now that Jesus Christ lives within us, He is the big Headline of our lives. Each day, let the joy, the presence, and the victory of Jesus Christ living within you become far greater to you than the outer world of tribulations. The ascending awareness of Christ within, accompanied by a growing understanding of His Person, presence, power, and purpose within us, blesses our minds and hearts, every time, with His peace and with His victory. "The Lord made them to rejoice over their enemies." Amen.
May this be our confessed truth today - "The Lord has made me to rejoice over my enemies. The Lord makes me rejoice. The Lord makes me rejoice in Him, for He is so good, loving, caring, and present. The Lord makes me rejoice over my enemies because He, Who is within me, is so much greater than all who are in the world, and I can safely rest in Him, for Christ is my always victory, now and forever. Thank You Lord God! Hallelujah!
