Psalm 100:All
1Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all you lands! 2Serve the Lord with gladness! Come before His presence with singing! 3Know (perceive, recognize, and understand with approval) that the Lord is God! It is He Who has made us, not we ourselves [and we are His]! We are His people and the sheep of His pasture. 4Enter into His gates with thanksgiving and a thank offering and into His courts with praise! Be thankful and say so to Him, bless and affectionately praise His Name! 5For the Lord is good; His mercy and loving-kindness are everlasting, His faithfulness and truth endure to all generations.

Psalm 95:1-6
1O come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the Rock of our salvation! 2Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to Him with songs of praise! 3For the Lord is a great God, and a great King above all gods. 4In His hand are the deep places of the earth; the heights and strength of the hills are His also. 5The sea is His, for He made it; and His hands formed the dry land. 6O come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker [in reverent praise and supplication].

Psalm 33:10-22
10The Lord brings the counsel of the nations to nought [nothing]; He makes the thoughts and plans of the peoples of no effect. 11The counsel of the Lord stands forever, the thoughts of His heart through all generations. 12Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people He has chosen as His heritage. 13The Lord looks from heaven, He beholds all the sons of men; 14From His dwelling place He looks [intently] upon all the inhabitants of the earth-- 15He Who fashions the hearts of them all, Who considers all their doings. 16No king is saved by the great size and power of his army; a mighty man is not delivered by [his] much strength. 17A horse is devoid of [lacks] value for victory; neither does he deliver any by his great power. 18Behold, the Lord's eye is upon those who fear Him [who revere and worship Him with awe], who wait for Him and hope in His mercy and loving-kindness, 19To deliver them from death and keep them alive in famine. 20Our inner selves wait [earnestly] for the Lord; He is our Help and our Shield. 21For in Him does our heart rejoice, because we have trusted (relied on and been confident) in His holy Name. 22Let Your mercy and loving-kindness, O Lord, be upon us, in proportion to our waiting and hoping for You.

Psalm 89:11-17
11The heavens are Yours [God], the earth also is Yours; the world and all that is in it, You have founded them. 12The north and the south, You have created them; Mount Tabor and Mount Hermon joyously praise Your Name. 13You have a mighty arm; strong is Your hand, Your right hand is soaring high. 14Righteousness and justice are the foundation of Your throne; mercy and loving-kindness and truth go before Your face. 15Blessed (happy, fortunate, to be envied) are the people who know the joyful sound [who understand and appreciate God’s spiritual blessings]; they walk, O Lord, in the light and favor of Your countenance! 16In Your Name they rejoice all the day, and in Your righteousness they are exalted. 17For You are the glory of their strength [their proud adornment], and by Your favor our horn is exalted [we receive honor] and we walk with uplifted faces!

Jesus named satan the father of lies.

In John 8:44, Jesus said: “He [satan] was a murderer from the beginning and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a falsehood, he speaks what is natural to him, for he is a liar [himself] and the father of lies and of all that is false.”

His lies and deceptions are his weapons of war. He has no power except for what he can steal through these weapons. The only power he has is the power you give him when you agree with, or allow yourself to be deceived by, his lies.

When you allow yourself to be tricked by satan’s lies, most often fear results. Fear steals joy, peace, and hope from your life.

The way to battle fear is to take your eyes off your circumstances and focus your attention on the One Who defeated satan for all of eternity ― Jesus. Said another way, the way to battle fear is to focus on Jesus’ triumph and rejoice.

In Matthew 5:5, Jesus counseled, “Blessed (happy, blithesome, joyous, spiritually prosperous—with life-joy and satisfaction in God’s favor and salvation, regardless of their outward conditions) are the meek (the mild, patient, long-suffering), for they shall inherit the earth!”

Your Father God wants you to know that what Matthew calls “life-joy” is His will for you. Psalm 16:11 describes this “fullness of joy.”

If you’d like to know more about the fullness of joy, the fullness of life, that Jesus offers, click on the link, which is appropriately named “Based On Him, Not Us.”

Isaiah 25:8-9
8He [God] will swallow up death [in victory; He will abolish death forever]. And the Lord God will wipe away tears from all faces; and the reproach of His people He will take away from off all the earth; for the Lord has spoken it. 9It shall be said in that day, Behold our God upon Whom we have waited and hoped, that He might save us! This is the Lord, we have waited for Him; we will be glad and rejoice in His salvation.
