Heeeeeyyyy Guys! Been a while you heard from me right? I apologize. In this article, I featured a dear friend Jumoke on Joy and what heaven thinks about Joy. So sit back, enjoy and be blessed.
[After all] the kingdom of God is not a matter of [getting the] food and drink [one likes], but instead it is righteousness (that state which makes a person acceptable to God) and [heart] peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. [AMP]
In the face of all your needs, that long standing health condition that has been confronting you for years now, that overwhelming academic challenge, that embarrassing financial ultimatum and all the too-much-for-words emotional burden you experience ever so often and has even become one with you not because you’d rather keep it bottled in but there are literally just no words to describe how you feel. In fact you are practically loosing it now! the pressures of life are gradually closing in on you and you are currently on the verge of giving up, because you’ve just about had it!
Don’t give up without a fight!
Don’t let go just yet!
Dear woman, you are strong!
You are bigger than your problems!
You are made for more!
You are more than a conqueror!
You are God’s responsibility!
You are a warrior!
You are built to last!
Your entire life is Gods masterpiece, and He Specialises in creating the best designs; hence all things are working together for your good!
Do you know that the joy of the Lord is your strength and maybe, just maybe all that has held you down for too long has been prevalent for Joy has been missing in your life, Joel 1:12 shows us something interesting;
Joel1:12 The vine is dried up, and the fig tree languisheth; the pomegranate tree, the palm tree also, and the apple tree, even all the trees of the field, are withered: because joy is withered away from the sons of men.
May You find your joy again! The force of Joy is the greatest weapon in the hands of a person in distress, joy is your speed dial number in the face of an emergency, you know how when there’s an emergency, you don’t have to feel like crying out for help, you know this is life treating so you scream helplessly for the intervention you desperately need, joy is your life line on such occasions when life comes knocking with imminent danger! You stand up and rejoice! and shout!
Therefore the situation before you is not nearly as important as your response! As you respond to situations with joy through the many expressions of Joy in dancing, shouting, dancing, singing, laughing, worship and maintaining an on-going communication with God through prayer you begin to see walls crashing down, through JOY the mountain before you is reduced to stepping stones that launches you forward.
Truth is that is all you face today are nothing but miracles posing as obstacles, there’s a testimony in that test and for every victory you need a Goliath! Joy helps you maintain a posture of seeing from God’s vantage point, naming your situations and choosing your battles!
Welcome to a life of victory in God through JOY!
Welcome to the Kingdom of God through JOY (Romans14:17)
Welcome to your best season ever as you harvest through JOY!
