Bringer Of Joy

Bringer Of Joy with your words.

Proverbs 15:23 says “A man has joy in making an apt answer, and a word spoken at the right moment—how good it is!” All of us know how helpful it is to receive affirmation to help grow. There is also joy when you are the one who can speak relevant words to someone else. Joy is contagious. When you speak encouraging words to others you will be encouraged as well.

Be a joy bringer today. Speak helpful words to others. Let your words be spoken at just the right time.



Restored Joy

There is no joy when you disobey God?

King David was so distraught after his sin of adultery and murder that he penned a song of repentance. In Psalm 51:12 David says, “Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and make me willing to obey you” (NLT).

Often the enemy of our hearts will tempt us to sin, making it seem like a fun thing to do. But don’t buy it. It is a trap that will lead to unhappiness and pain. True joy comes when we turn around and are willing to completely obey God.  Then He restores our joy so that we overflow in Him.



Joy, what’s the secret?

Joy, do you every wonder what is the secret to it.

Psalm 16:11 says: “You will show me the path of life; in Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore” (NKJV). The secret is staying in God’s presence. Whenever you or I are lacking, we need to find Jesus. When we abide in Jesus and He abides in us, then we experience fullness of joy.

In every season, in stead of escaping from life, make Jesus the joy of your life. Don’t let shopping malls or buying things be a diversion.   In His presence is fullness of joy.  It will become the fruit of your time with God.



Pure Joy

“Blessed (happy, blithesome, joyous, spiritually prosperous—with life-joy and satisfaction in God’s favor and salvation, regardless of their outward conditions) are the meek (the mild, patient, long-suffering), for they shall inherit the earth!” Matthew 5:8 The Amplified Bible.

How often does your face radiate with joy?

Think about how easy it is to see pure joy in a child’s face when he lifts his hand to catch a bubble or dance in the sunlight.  In a similar way, we encounter God’s joy as we are childlike before Him.  We experience life-joy and fulfillment when we see the truth of who God is.  It is in walking intimately with God that we inherit the fulness of the joy that He has for us.

Max Lucado says it like this, “Think about God’s joy. What can cloud it? What can quench it? . . . Is God ever in a bad mood because of bad weather? Does God get ruffled over long lines or traffic jams? Does God ever refuse to rotate the earth because his feelings are hurt?No. His is a joy which consequences cannot quench. His is a peace which circumstances cannot steal.”

Tap into God’s pure joy by opening your heart to Him in meekness. Meekness is strength in control and it leads to you inheriting the earth.
