It’s Satan’s responsibility to make us think we need this or that to be happy. When we realize we have everything we need in Jesus to be happy, we’ll overcome that sense of thinking we need something else to be happy.

Remaining in a constant state of joy is a daily battle. If we listen to the devil and let him show us all the things we don’t have that will make our lives “happier,” we’ll constantly be depressed and/or pursuing exterior things in the hopes of being happy. The problem with this pursuit is there will always be more things.

With Jesus, we have all we need. Through Him, we have every promise from God and we have every desire within our hearts. We may have to wait on certain things but, we have a guarantee that those desires will manifest. If we think long enough, we can maintain a sense of joy based on all the things He’s done in our lives up to this point.

Don’t lose your joy by listening to the devil. Meditate on the goodness of God for all the things He’s done and praise God that through the blood of Jesus we’ll eventually attain every promise of God.

Nehemiah 8:10 Nehemiah said, “Go and enjoy choice food and sweet drinks, and send some to those who have nothing prepared. This day is holy to our Lord. Do not grieve, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.”
