JOY AND LAUGHTER
A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones (Proverbs 17:22).
WORD OF ENCOURAGEMENT
We probably have all heard of various scientific studies that talk about how smiles, joy, and laughter can affect one’s health. Well, we have proof from Scripture that this is true! A merry or happy heart acts like medicine to the cells of our body. Our health is impacted by our level of gladness. However, challenging or painful circumstances can try to steal that sense of joyfulness. Instead of feeling elated, we feel a churning within. That is when we need to pray in faith for our sense of gladness to return and we can ask for God to do that by only a power He can provide. We can’t always in our human strength muster up the ability to laugh and rejoice in tough times, but we can speak words of joy and ask God to bring supernatural joy upon us. If you aren’t feeling much joy or the desire to laugh, ask the Father to invade you with a gladness that overrides everything that ails you. Declare joy and laughter today!
