It is a common saying that happiness is a choice but I chose to add this morning that becoming joyful is a choice. The word joy is explained by Strong’s dictionary as being glad, rejoicing, to leap in excitement, to break out in joyful sound.
The bible in different places have explained that joy is needful for us as Christians to get things done. There is nothing that confuses and scares the devil as a child of God who is always joyful because he knows that such child of God will be full of strength.
Isa- 12:3 Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.
Drawing out from the wells of salvation can only be done with joy. We can as well draw out flourishing and growth for our marriages from the wells of salvation with Joy.
We must understand that Joy is the core conveyer (fetcher, drawing bucket) for all that is in the salvation plan for our life and our marriage. Then for us to be able to use this fetcher, we have to be deliberate in living with Joy.
The devil knows that if we can remain joyful, we will get results in our marriage. So his major challenge is to attack our joy, especially joy in our marriage.
Habakuk 3:17-18 Although the fig tree shall not blossom, neither shall fruit be in the vines; the labour of the olive shall fail, and the fields shall yield no meat; the flock shall be cut off from the fold, and there shall be no herd in the stalls: Yet I will rejoice in the LORD, I will joy in the God of my salvation.
Though you thought by now you should have had your baby, but right now, achieving pregnancy seems to be a problem, yet you should rejoice!
Though we thought that after marriage, we would be able to do that major project we could not do as singles, but right now, everything seems not to be going as we thought or planned, yet we should rejoice!
Though you thought your business would have grown big by now but the business is still trying to reach customers for sustenance, yet you should rejoice.
You have to understand that it is a deliberate act to live joyfully.
Ecc 9:9 Live joyfully with the wife whom thou lovest all the days of the life of thy vanity, which he hath given thee under the sun, all the days of thy vanity: for that is thy portion in this life, and in thy labour which thou takest under the sun.
The things that will deprive you of remaining joyful as husbands and wife will always abound but you must defy the reasons not to be joyful and live joyfully.
Few ways to live joyfully:
1. Always recount the goodness of God at all times, especially when you are faced with pressure.
2. Be quick to let go of all offences. You will have reasons to disagree but be quick to make peace with each other
3. Lift each other up in the place of prayers.
4. Never get trapped in the pit of comparison. No two marriages are the same
