How To Be Happy – Part 3

Devotion on Being HappyDo you feel overwhelmed? Like you’ve got more on your plate than you are able to handle? If you do you’re not alone, check out what Romans has to say about that.

We continue to shout our praise even when we’re hemmed in with troubles. We can’t round up enough containers to hold everything God generously pours into our lives through the Holy Spirit! Romans 5: 1-6 Message

Since the joy of the Lord is our strength, when we shout our praise it gives us strength to go through the tough times we’re in. Most people only sing when they feel joyful. But the Bible instructs us to praise through the troubles. In other words, praise will get you through it faster and while you’re going through it, help you keep your smile in place. Whatever is troubling you, God has an answer. So get your attitude of victory because you’re coming through this trouble.
God loves you and has poured into your heart all you need. Take a minute right now to praise God for the things He has given you and you will find the heaviness of your stresses ease up. [Tweet “Praise is a great way to stay encouraged and make it through the troubles you’re facing. – @studentdevos”]

Speak the word : Father I know you love me and have given me all I need to get through this. I come to You today thanking you for your help (grace) and strength. I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me. I’m coming through this trouble. I receive Your wisdom when I don’t know what to do. I receive Your healing for the pain. I receive Your love to fill me up. Your peace is mine and I keep my mind on Your supply and help. I continue to speak these things through the trouble.
