I live life every day wanting to be the type of young lady who, when my feet hit the floor in the morning, makes the devil scream “OH NO, SHE’S UP!”
And it’s not a hard thing to do. Today I have three simple, actionable ways guaranteed to bring you joy and bring the devil turmoil.
Also, at the end of this post, I have my absolute favorite way to kick the devil’s butt in a free, downloadable PDF you’re welcome to grab. That way alone has changed my life and took me from a radical pessimist to a radical optimist.
1. PRAISE GOD INSTEAD OF YOUR PROBLEMS
We all have problems. There’s no denying them or ignoring them.
Sometimes—most of the time, really—I’m tempted to vent about them. I just want to complain and be mad and it can take up my entire day if I let it.
But when we switch the focus, something happens. Fixing our eyes on Jesus instead of on our circumstances not only gives us joy, but it makes the devil infuriated. If he can get you focused on everything going wrong, he’ll get you depressed and living swayed by emotion.
Instead, start praising the God Who makes a way out of all that and turns everything around for His good!
When you release praise into the atmosphere, you release stuff the devil and all of hell can’t stand.
