Philippians 3:1 New International Version (NIV)
3 Further, my brothers and sisters, rejoice in the Lord! It is no trouble for me to write the same things to you again, and it is a safeguard for you.
How often do we see the word rejoice, be joyful, be filled with joy? Only joy can come from Jesus. Being able to be joyful in times of trouble or pain can only come with the love of Christ. As I set in prison, I learn more and more every day of what Paul felt and dealt with in prison. But I also learn how to have that joy and how to rejoice in what God gives and where He puts you. But no matter where you are or what you encounter, know that God is in control, and He does know of all your troubles and cares very much for each one of us. Satan causes to sin and look away from God. Satan wants to steal, kill and destroy our joy. Remember anytime you have troubles it could always be worse. Learn to thank God instead of complaining. Learn to love God in all our life. And keep Satan pushed behind.
ON THE WAY HOME WALK WITH JESUS and be filled with the joy that ONLY JESUS CHRIST can give!!!
