Have you ever noticed how so often after you have felt especially inspired by something God is showing you through reading the Bible, or listening to a sermon, that something will often happen that allows you to use this newfound inspiration?
It's often not very fun.
For example, I was listening to a message by Otto Koning regarding a spiritual weapon we possess, and how to use it. It's called simply, the weapon of rejoicing.
Rejoicing when things are going according to plan, rejoicing when good things happen. That's all pretty easy.
Rejoicing when things go wrong, when unexpected things keep piling up. Your vehicle breaks down, your major appliances decide to die, health problems arise, betrayal happens, and more. Well that's a lot harder to keep rejoicing and praising God for everything. But so effective.
I'm wielding that weapon right now. It's a little heavier than I imagined when I was feeling so inspired, but I know with every fiber of my being that God is good.
