As humans we have a tendency to rejoice in tangible things…new car, nice home, well behaved kids, great job, etc…and the devil encourages this.
He wants us to rejoice in those “things” he can shake…new car breaks down…something happens to the house…kids act out…get laid off…and your joy goes out with the thing!
But when you rejoice in the God of your Salvation and the Finished Work of Jesus Christ, you place your joy, where it CANNOT BE COMPROMISED…IT IS SURE AND EVERLASTING!
