For those of you who know me, you know how much I love laughter. I love people who make me laugh, and I love to make people laugh, myself. I write a column with lots of humor, mainly because I have so much humor at my disposal because of the things I say and do. Laughter is truly a gift from God, and I’m very grateful for it.
One of the best parts about laughter is that, for those of us who are on the Grace and Mercy Plan of Jesus Christ, we have the power to laugh in the face of the devil.
Satan tempts me to gossip? When I resist, I can laugh in Satan’s face. Satan wants me to fall victim to his critical spirit? Then I think on whatsoever is lovely and whatsoever is pure, and Jesus delivers me from the critical spirit and I laugh, laugh at Satan’s attempt to manipulate me. Satan tempts me to be selfish and self-centered? I choose to be more like Jesus, and I can laugh, laugh, laugh in Satan’s face.
Satan, get away from me–and stay away. Ha, ha, ha–You are not welcome in my life. Then I really laugh when I see Satan flee from the power of God that dwells in me.
See why I’m so grateful for laughter?
