What steals your joy and strength? Nothing will steal our strength and joy like living lives we do not love. The way we store energy is through our desires, values, passions, hopes, dreams, and aspirations, and ultimately our greatest capacity for energy storage is through what we love. Whether it is family, friends, job, church or hobbies. We have to keep dreaming and hoping and reaching for that joy and strength. The devil will continue to try and stomp out our dreams and hopes. But living in Christ gives the evil one no chance of success. James 15:13 states, “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” If you find yourself lacking in joy and strength, ask the Lord to renew your spirit of hope, trust and joy. He will help you find what you search for. He is the God of hope and He Loves Ya;)
