Joy and The Guidance of God

Matthew 2:10 When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceedingly great joy.

The greatest joy is to be led of the Lord!  I am sure you want that for your life!  What an honor and blessing that God guides us!  Just dwell on this for a while, it will cause your heart to sing for joy!

The Joyful Team

Romans 14:17 for the kingdom of God …righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
Romans 15:13 Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that you may abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

“Joy” is never individualistic but works with others in a team. In fact you will find that all spiritual forces work as teams. The other members of the “Joyful Team” are Righteousness, Peace, Hope (Romans 15:13) , Faith (Philippians 1:25) and Love, Longsuffering, Gentleness, Goodness, Faith, Meekness, Temperance or Self-control. (Galatians 5:22,23) If you want to be successful and cheerful, you must be willing to team up with the other members of the “Joyful Team”. You get to know and yield to the operations of Righteousness and Peace; these forces will stop and protect you from bribery, greed and wickedness; you also need to grow in the understanding and working of Faith and Hope. These forces keep you positive, filling you with joyful anticipation and expectation about your future in the Lord. Then you submit to the voice of Love, Longsuffering, Gentleness, Goodness in your relationship and conduct with men. When you are about to burst out in wrathful accusations, you listen to the voice of Meekness and Self-control also. This “Joyful Team” will definitely guarantee you with a life of “joy unspeakable and full of glory”! This “Joyful Team” undergirds you with the standing power of the Holy Spirit against all the attacks, seductions, distractions and confusion of the enemy. They are strong Kingdom forces unlike fickle human feelings; that is why even in tough times, there is still abundance of joy. (2 Cor. 8:2) There is refreshing in the ministry of Joy. The ministry of the Holy Spirit is inseparable from Joy. (1 Thess 1:6) Joy is the expression of freedom, deliverance, salvation and victory.

The Church of the Lord Jesus Christ is the place, the ministry, the fountain of Joy!

Psalm 48:2 Beautiful in elevation, the joy of the whole earth, Is Mount Zion on the sides of the north, The city of the great King.
Matthew Henry “The joy of the Lord will arm us against the assaults of our spiritual enemies and put our mouths out of taste for those pleasures with which the tempter baits his hooks.”

God bless you!

The Fountain of Joy

Isaiah 12:3 Therefore with joy you will draw water from the wells of salvation.

There is a well on the inside of you connected to the heavenly streams and you need to stir up the water within.  This fountain of living water will nourish your spirit, refresh your soul and rejuvenate your body. Don’t allow this well to go stagnant, put in the Prayer Motor and the fountain will start overflowing!

Plucking Out The Root Of Loneliness

Hebrews 12:15: Looking diligently lest any man fail of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up trouble you, and thereby many be defiled;
Get Rid Of Any Self-Defeating Attitudes

Loneliness comes because we have adopted a very self-defeating attitude. If we are always competitive, individualistic and demanding, then people will flee from us. We must not adopt a parliamentary attitude by which we see life as a big tournament with success as the winner’s prize and competition as a way of life. Then we become very task-oriented, cold and demanding with the people around us.
