The world’s system is exactly backwards from the Kingdom of God when it comes to the area of strength. In the world, strength is all about power, and the ability to control and dominate others. In the Kingdom of God, the joy of the Lord is your strength. It is only in Christ that you experience the world-overcoming strength you need to accomplish your God assignment. And that strength starts as you experience joy in your intimate association with God through Jesus. Make a decision to enter into joy today and watch your godly strength increase as you do!
