WEAR A SMILE
Main Text: Job 9:27
If I say, ‘I will forget my complaint, I will change my expression, and smile.. – (NIV) Philippians 4:6- Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. (NIV)
Smiling is one of the ways we express happiness within us. When we smile we bring joy to people.s faces. Smiling helps us to de-stress. We share our happiness with others when we smile. When we worry, we breed depression and fear and the devil shift our focus from the truth that God is able to deliver us. Some people wear their problems on their faces but the word of God says “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to
God” In the scripture above, faith comes into play. You may have done all this but nothing seems to be happening or the break you prayed for is not forthcoming but you have to continually believe that as He brought you to this present stage of your life, He is able to take you further because times and seasons are in His hands. God knows the future more than we know the past. Just as the bible says “cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you. – 1 Peter 5:7”
Surrender all you are going through now to God. When the devil comes to rob you of your smile through worries, begin to thank God for the things He has done in the past and those He is yet to do. By so doing, you build your faith in God and the peace of God encamps around your heart. Beloved, instead of getting worried, trust God and put on your best smile knowing that God is in control and you are in safe hands. Just like a child will tell his father what he wants and he has the assurance that he will get what he asked for even when he has not seen it yet; how much more us His beloved children that He didn’t withhold his only son, saving us from destruction. Job, in all his afflictions kept on believing that God was able to see him through it. As you go out today be assured and smile that Jesus is on your boat and the storms of life cannot drown you.
GOD IS ABLE TO HANDLE EVERY SITUATION. JUST BELIEVE.
