THE JOY OF THE LORD ABOUNDS IN YOU
John 17 vs
»»13. ¶”But now I come to You, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have MY JOY fulfilled in themselves.-[KJV]«««||
JESUS Christ never spoke without it having essence or purpose to fulfill. God spoke through prophet Isaiah that _”So shall My word be that goes forth from My mouth; it shall not return to Me void, but it shall accomplish what I please, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it (Isaiah 55:11)._ From our opening text, Jesus affirmed that _” these things I speak in the world, that they might have MY JOY fulfilled in themselves.”_He desires HIS joy to be fulfilled in you. *He doesn’t want sorrows to fill your life. Because the joy of the Lord infuses divine strength in you to continue in the journey of life (Neh 8:10).*
So dwelling, believing and relying on the sayings of Jesus incites a greater experience of His joy in you. The joy of the Lord being fulfilled in us also implies that His Joy “abounds or fill to the full in us.” Thus serving God purely out of joy or His joy becoming your anchor for service. Cherished one, there is a certain kind of joy in Jesus that must be perfected in you. *When it does, you won’t be moved away from Him by any situation or challenges of life; You will not be perturbed by mockery or persecution from any sect or situation.*
_You will be fully persuaded and convinced by the love of Christ._ Lack of joy means lack of inspiration and motivation. *Joy is a motivator that greater things are being experienced.* This kind of joy surpasses any physical or material treasure because it rests in the Holy Spirit (Rom 14:17). It’s so priceless and can’t be purchased. *This is the time that the joy of the Lord must saturate every sphere of your life by relying on the comforting words of Jesus and His Spirit.* Let His joy abound greatly in you. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you always.
Precious Father, thank You for joy unspeakable that I have found in You. In Your presence, there is fullness of joy and at Your right hand are pleasures ever more. Relying on Your comforting word perfects Your joy in me. Your joy abound in me and gives enough strength for advancement. Truly, Your joy shall forever be my strength in the Name of Jesus. Amen!
Enjoy A Joyful Wednesday !
