Are you putting off Joy?
Joy-true joy-originates from God and from living in close connection w/GOD, not from our immediate situation or emotional state. Joy is always accessible to us because God has give us his Holy Spirit (see Galatians 5:22-23). Not only do we have constant access to the Spirit of joy, but this joy is also, according to Nehemiah, our very strength; and it is available now! The enemy tries to deceive us into believing we cannot experience joy-at least not just yet. We buy into the thinking that say, "When this is over, when I finish this, when I obtain that, when I've resolved this... then I can experience joy."
Yet God wants us to know his joy now. Not tomorrow, not when we're healed, not when sorrow has passed, not when we've become successful, not when our child or spouse changes, not when we've lost ten pounds, not when we've paid off our debt, received a promotion or bought a bigger home, but now-this day!
What are you waiting to overcome, obtain or get rid of before experiencing God's joy?
