"When Satan Tries To Steal Your Joy   "
Have you ever felt like you lost your joy?
Do you ever wake up and think… “I used to be happy.”
Could it be that satan has stolen your joy?

Let’s explore this today…


He attacks our joy by trying to make us live in a state of constant lack. (no peace, no security, not enough time in the day…)

It’s time to attack lack!

There are some loses that God can restore! With the rest He can give you peace. (Example: Loss of a loved one)

He attacks our joy through family conflict. (strife, division, war)

Matthew 10:36 KJV - And a man's foes shall be they of his own household.

This is predominately talking about the proclamation of and the demonstration of the Gospel with power.

Your family will use, abuse and misunderstand you. They see the “human you”.

Don’t let it steal your joy. God will always think more of you than your family does!

He attacks our joy through physical, emotional and financial pain. (disease, shame, bankruptcy)


Isaiah 53:4-5 AMP

Surely He has borne our griefs (sicknesses, weaknesses, and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains [of punishment], yet we [ignorantly] considered Him
stricken, smitten, and afflicted by God [as if with leprosy].

But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities; the chastisement [needful to obtain] peace and well-being for us was upon
Him, and with the stripes [that wounded] Him we are healed and made whole.

Matthew 8:17 AMP - And thus He fulfilled what was spoken by the prophet Isaiah, He Himself took [in order to carry away] our weaknesses and infirmities and
bore away our diseases.


Isaiah 50:6 I gave my back to the smiters, and my cheeks to them that plucked off the hair: I hid not my face from shame and spitting.

Hebrews 12:2 Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set
down at the right hand of the throne of God.


2 Corinthians 8:9 KJV - For ye know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that, though he was rich, yet for your sakes he became poor, that ye through his poverty
might be rich.

2 Corinthians 8:9 AMP - For you are becoming progressively acquainted with and recognizing more strongly and clearly the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ (His
kindness, His gracious generosity, His undeserved favor and spiritual blessing), [in] that though He was [so very] rich, yet for your sakes He became [so very]
poor, in order that by His poverty you might become enriched (abundantly supplied).


Where your joy comes from

Godly love results in joy - Philemon 1:7

Godly fellowship results in joy - 2 John1:12

The primary source of joy however comes from God

Psalms 126:4-6 God says our weeping will turn to rejoicing as we return with harvest.

1 Thessalonians 1:5-7 KJV  • Satan does not have a right to your joy

• Choose Joy!

Today I want to pray with you for VICTORY over every loss, every disappointment, every battle that has stolen your joy.


 For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know
what manner of men we were among you for your sake....... Let us Pray
