Be Of Good Cheer!
by Joyce Meyer – posted October 16, 2012
In John 16:33, Jesus said, “Be of good in this verse is, “to be of good courage.” When the Lord was giving Joshua direction, He repeatedly told him to be of good courage. Without the cheerful attitude that God encouraged Joshua to walk in, he would have given up when the enemy repeatedly came against him, and the children of Israel would never have reached the promised land.
The same is true of you in your daily walk. Joy and cheer give you the strength to carry on toward the goal the Lord has set before you. Lack of joy is why many times you give up when you should endure. The presence of courage and a cheerful attitude gives you the endurance to outlast the devil, overcome your negative circumstances, and “inherit the land.”
