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!


Psalm 105:43
He brought out His people with joy, His chosen ones with gladness.

How do we know if we are led of the Lord, check if your heart is rejoicing and your spirit singing with gladness!  Joy ignites your spirit, gets you excited about your future.  You become full of hope, full of faith, motivated, focused, purposeful and ready to take on the whole world!  Inspiration and intelligence also come with Joy.  Your head becomes clearer, lighter and brighter!  Ideas, insights, concepts, images, visions and dreams will start to show up in the theatre of your mind. 

Isaiah 55:12
For you shall go out with joy, and be led out with peace

God is leading you in joy and gladness for He is taking you to a higher not sadder place!  God has goodness in store for us and He is leading us on in this exciting journey of Treasure Hunt!  When David fought his battles, he was excited about the territory he was taking over, the spoils he was getting.  He knew that God was the one leading him in victory!  The same for you, pray and believe that every step taken is the leadership of the Lord, every obstacle overcome is the source of joy.  Joy is contagious!  Even if you start with a little bit of joy, it multiplies and spreads.  So by faith dwell on the promises of God, the power of the Holy Ghost; joy then comes through positive anticipation.  God guides you through joyful hope.  When the wise men followed the star to look for the Messiah, they did it with joyful expectation.  They had their gifts ready, they were fully expecting to meet the King.  What are your anticipations like?  Are they confident and joyful?  They must be!  Praise the Lord!
