Isaiah 51:11| “Those the Lord has rescued will return. They will enter Zion with singing; EVERLASTING JOY will crown their heads. Gladness and JOY will overtake them, and sorrow and sighing will flee away.”
Recently I have been experiencing intense joy and bliss. The peace of God has flooded my soul. I feel His presence so tangible in my everyday life. Everyday I have an encounter with Him that usually brings me to tears of gratitude and deep joyous laughter. I feel so invigorated, so alive! His glory is all over me, I think I might be glowing.
Moses had the same experience when he came off the mountain with the Lord. But the glory was passing away from him. But we have it to stay. The Holy Spirit has really encouraged me this week. I want to pass this along to you.
You don’t have to lose your joy, EVER! His joy is available and assessable in His presence consistently. It’s joy everlasting! Joy that never ends!
These are a few ways to tap into that everlasting joy:
- 1.) You have to be not only tired but terrified of your own way in order to begin to really experience the fullness of the saturation of the Holy Spirit to lead guide and direct.
- 2.) Psalm 68:19| “Blessed be the Lord, Who DAILY LOADS us with benefits, The God of our salvation! Selah”
His joy is new every day. So everyday there is a renewal of His joy in each day. Acknowledge and thank Him for the joy in each day.
- 3.) Psalm 118:24| “This is the DAY the LORD has made. We WILL rejoice and be glad in it.”
It’s a choice. it’s a matter of your will. So decide today that you will reJOYce.
- 4.) Jude 1:24| “Now all glory to God, who is able to KEEP YOU from falling away and will bring you with GREAT JOY into his glorious presence without a single fault.”
Depend on the Holy Spirit to keep you there. He is able to keep you there
Isaiah 55:12-13| “You will go out in JOY and be led forth in peace; the mountains and hills will burst into song before you, and all the trees of the field will clap their hands. Instead of the thornbush will grow the juniper, and instead of briers the myrtle will grow. This will be for the Lord’s renown, for an EVERLASTING sign, that will endure FOREVER.””
All praise to our God and Father who causes us to triumph in every way! Thank Him for His joy today. Surrender your all to Him today. Decide you want to stay in His presence where the fullness of joy is. Ask Him to keep you there by His mighty right hand. Now His joy is overtaking you!
