When Things Seem To Annoy, Count It All Joy

joyful people

It is time to put on joy as we go through things that test us.

Webster’s definition of  annoy:

1 to disturb or irritate especially by repeated acts

2 to harass especially by quick brief attacks

Things can come at you to disturb you, irritate you repeatedly,  and harass you. They  happen so fast that it can throw you off guard or for a loop.

The word of God says when trying things happen to count it all joy.

Webster’s definition of joy: 3 a source or cause of delight.

We as believers know the source of delight comes from spending time in the word of God. Joy is eternal and spiritual. In order to receive joy like Webster’s meaning, we have to hook up with the source to get the supply.

What does the word of God says about going through trying times or attacks?

James 1:2 New Living Translation: Dear brothers and sisters, when troubles of any kind come your way, consider it an opportunity for great joy. For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow. So let it grow, for when your endurance is fully developed, you will be perfect and complete, needing nothing.

I am already receiving joy just by reading this. Hallelujah!

Nehemiah 8:10 says the joy of the Lord is our strength.

Glory to God! That is something to rejoice and be glad about.

As long as we hook up to the source of joy, which is spending time with God and in His word, we can have joy when things around us are chaotic.

When things seem to annoy, count it all joy!
