Learn to Laugh Июнь 24, 2010

Posted by Lee Goodall in Today's Devotional.

‘…A cheerful heart is good medicine…’ Proverbs 17:22

If you’re constantly negative in your outlook, something’s wrong. ‘There is…a time to laugh…’ (Ecclesiastes 3:1,4 NKJV). You say, ‘Right now I can’t find anything to laugh about.’ Then observe how the Psalmist opens Psalms 124, 125, and 126: ‘…If the Lord had not been on our side…they would have swallowed us alive…’ (Ps 124:1-3 NIV). ‘Those who trust in the Lord are like Mount Zion, which cannot be shaken…’ (Psalm 125:1 NIV). ‘When the Lord brought back the captives to Zion…Our mouths were filled with laughter…Then it was said among the nations, «The Lord has done great things for them» (Psalm 126:1-3 NIV). When you can rejoice in the midst of trouble, people want to know what your secret is. And you can always find a reason to rejoice when you remember Who is on your side. Doctors have confirmed what the Bible teaches: Laughter de-stresses you and strengthens your immune system: A cheerful heart is good medicine’; plus, a positive attitude will bring you favour and cooperation. When you keep adding to the heat and confusion of a crisis, people lose respect for your ability to handle things under pressure. But, if you stay cool and maintain your sense of humour when things are falling apart, they’ll show their appreciation in better work and increased loyalty. Sure, some problems are serious, but you gain nothing by dwelling on the bleak side. Put the problem into God’s hands and watch the results! Job said, ‘He will…fill your mouth with laughter, and your lips with shouts of joy’ (Job 8:21 NRS). Now, if he could say that, surely you can!
