Joy! Joy! Joy! “That would be nice”, you say, “…to have that kind of joy and laughter – to experience the joy unspeakable once again.”
You can, you will and you have.
I come to empower you to press into the joy that I have already given you, because of the power that I have placed within your life – the power to overcome and the power to refuse to accept the shame and guilt that was never yours to bear.
I am doing and have done a new work in you to perfect you and shape you and mould you. Do you remember how I took you through dark days? Do you remember how I brought people into your life at just the right time? Do you remember how, even when you didn’t believe in yourself, others believed in you?
Do not think that I only work when in the “mood”! I am at work in you always, to help you to accomplish all that I designed you to fulfill in this life. Your work has just begun and I will never give you more than you can handle.
Rise up, look to the east, look to the heavens and fix your eyes on the One, my Son, who has already endured more than you will ever experience so that your joy might be complete. Press forward and call that joy in you to rise up and laugh, celebrate and rejoice.
This is the day that I have made for you to see breakthroughs of joy!
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
