True Joy Come Through Believing Joyfully

I was at first reluctant to put this in my book, but Lord woke me during the night and said, “I gave it to you to write”. When Jesus speaks to his followers He does it in several different ways. Sometimes God’s words are so we can better understand his will for us.

Other times he may just want to talk with us, while sometimes we may need more instruction to help us. Whatever his reason, it is that our joy may be full. Today, the LORD is saying it’s time for His Church to show the glory of God to the world. It is time for Christians to ask God for spiritual gifts and activate them, (John17:9, 18, 21, 23, 26).

Word direct from Lord: “These things I have told you, that My joy and delight may be in you, and that your joy and gladness may be of full measure and complete and overflowing”, (John 15:11).Without doubt, God wants His family happy! And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.” (John 8:32). God’s Words are all real promises, which create wonderful harvests in your life and bring joy to you. His Word gives us our rest so we can rejoice in expecting our promises that bring the joy into our lives. When we have joy in our lives we know that Jesus also has joy in us. The result of our joy in the Lord is our joy in life. Thus, our joy comes from Jesus’ joy in us.

Sing to the Lord a new song, for He has done marvelous things; His right hand and His holy arm have wrought salvation. The Lord has made known His salvation; His righteousness has He openly shown in the sight of the nations. Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth; break forth and sing for joy, yes, sing praises! (Psa 98:1,2,4).
So start making it a point to thank God for all He has done for you. Keep looking for good things to happen instead of defeat and misery. Keep a smile on your face, even if it’s difficult. Yes, let people see you are a happy Christian. Keep your savior at your right hand at all times; know he is walking through your life with you. This should make anyone want to praise LORD daily. Be blessed and loved, it’s what Jesus wants for all of His family.

God is right now moving His worldwide family into position so world can see His body of believers shinning with His Glory. Then, when people start saying, “It looks like nothing is working”, instead, they will rise and go where it has never gone before. That is when the reflection of church, saying, “lift your eyes for here we come like no other generation before.” Lords eternal plan has never been to just improve our lifestyle on earth. His plan is much larger than small thinking.

His plan has always been to transform our lifestyle from bondage in worlds kingdom to an abundant life of freedom so He could work through us: “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me”, (Galatians 2:20-21 NKJV).

Yes, it is exciting to be part of God’s Greatest Adventure on earth: LEADING SOMEONE TO CHRIST. I was 26 when I came to God and now I’m coming up on 81. Yes, a life-long passion and still working at it. So, start right now inviting HIM to lay someone, or even a group, on your heart to help meet the love of God, instead of hatred of some many that’s lost today. So, keep growing spiritually seeing church grow larger than it is, and keep seeing it larger that you want to reach, remember His plan is perpetual and that can’t be forgotten. Keep a willingness to work with other churches, remembering that God’s kingdom is bigger than just your church, plus the true Body of Christ Is connected worldwide to Christ the Head.
