I ask you this, have you laughed? Have you laughed in the midst of the storm? Have you laughed in the midst of the drought? For I tell you, in famine and destruction you shall laugh. I say laugh. Laugh in the face of the enemy . Laugh at his antics, laugh at his attempts to distract and laugh at his loss. For he is but a cut off withering branch. For EVERY time you laugh it confounds him. Remember, I am your joy. I am your strength. The joy of the Lord is your strength. If I am for you, tell Me, who can be against you? So laugh! Joy in the God of your salvation and see My hand at work sayeth the Lord of glory, the mighty Lord of heaven and earth.
