Expensive Joy

It's your birthday and you get a Rolex watch (Price: 10,000USD) as a gift. Someone else also thought of you and they too bought you a watch but they picked it up from Walmart.


A couple months down the line someone expresses that they are in real need of a watch and you feel led to give them one. Which one would you give them?


The truth is, the more things cost, is the less likely people are willing to give them away.

Most people would definitely give the Walmart watch. Why? Because it's just something else if you can have a $10,000 watch on your wrist!


I was thinking along these lines one day when the Lord asked me a question. He said, "How expensive is your joy?" I saw exactly what He was talking about. How easily do you give your joy into the hands of the enemy? If it were precious in your eyes you would fight never to give it away. However, when we submit to carnal emotions and moodiness we fail to walk in the power of God's joy. We give our joy right to the devil. If it is a cheap thing in your eyes, you will give it away speedily. But if it is costly to you, you will protect it with your life.


Don't give away your joy today! Walk in the Spirit and you shall not fulfill the lust of the flesh! Hold onto your joy and peace today, it surely is a priceless gift from God.
