Thank Him for seeing us through, the One who watches over us. He’s the Everlasting Father. All power belongs to You in Jesus Name. Father let it please You to have mercy on us and fill our lives with the power and fire of Holy Ghost in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen!
Father speak to us and let Your Word transform our lives in Jesus Name.
Text : Isaiah 35:10
And the ransomed of the Lord shall return, And come to Zion with singing, With everlasting joy on their heads. They shall obtain joy and gladness, And sorrow and sighing shall flee away.
Title : The Healing power of Joy
We live in a crisis loaded world. Peace and joy are permanently under pressure. The enemy uses several channels to fight the joy of a Christian because he knows the relevance of joy in the life of a child of God. 2 Corinthians 2:11 “lest satan should take advantage of us; for we are not ignorant of his devices.
Therefore the child of God is responsibly bound to defend his or her joy by all means and at all costs. Fight for your joy like as you fight for your life or salvation. Joy is irreplaceable.
I pray that God in His infinite mercy will fill our lives with everlasting joy in all areas of our lives in Jesus Name, Amen!
3 SOURCES OF ATTACK OF JOY
1 ) From enemy forces of darkness and wickedness. David said “I am weary with my groaning; All night I make my bed swim; I drench my couch with my tears, My eye waste away because of grief; It grows old because of all my enemies. Psalm6:6-7
2 ) Joy is attacked from human agents of wickedness and destruction. Some human beings make some people smile and others make them groan. There are evil wicked leaders, personalities, heartless people, Landlords, employers/employees, relatives, church members, pastors even wicked than the devil. “and Esther said, The adversary and enemy is this wicked Haman…..”Esther7:6
3 ) From personal actions and inactions. You can lose joy from your own actions. “There is no peace, says the Lord for the wicked” Isaiah 48:22. David after committing adultery with Bathsheba and murdering her husband says in Psalm 51:12, “Restore to me the joy of Your salvation….”
King Saul said to David that “indeed I have played the fool and erred exceedingly.” 1 Samuel 26:21.
I pray that any power, person or actions attacking our joy shall be consumed by the fire of Holy Ghost in Jesus Name, Amen!
WHAT TO DO
1 ) Connect with God and make Him alone the source of your joy. Isaiah 61:10 “I will greatly rejoice in the Lord, My soul shall be joyful in my God; For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, As a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, as a bride adorns herself with her jewels.”
2 ) Resist every attempt of the enemy to steal or destroy your joy by the power in the Word of God. Don’t allow work of darkness to steal your joy. 1 Peter 5:8-9
3 ) Resist and refuse to allow the activities of wicked people to control your joy. Joseph was sold by his brothers and they wanted to put him in bondage of depression but he decided to live in joy and gave others joy even in prison. Paul and Silas were meant to be crying but were singing.
4 ) Avoid actions that attack your joy and embrace actions that fuel your joy. “Be glad in the Lord and rejoice, you righteous; And shout for joy, all you upright in heart! Psalm 32:11.
I pray every activities of the enemy to control our joy shall be terminated today in Jesus Mighty Name, Amen!
THINGS TO AVOID
1 ) Lack of clear visions and goals for life. Don’t live life without goals. Visions and goals bring brightness and sunshine to life. Life becomes a burden where it lacks a bearing. You are tired of living when you think it ends nowhere. Write work to do for every day, finish projects you have started, pray at all times for God’s direction and intervention. This can move your life to next level. Habakkuk 2:3, Write the vision down.
2 ) Lack of personal development. Improve yourself, develop yourself in all realms. Personal development is a key to personal fulfilment. Results/achievements make people rejoice. To feel left behind is to deprive yourself of joy.
3 ) When you focus on what is lacking or what is not working in your life, you kill your joy. No matter what is not working in your life, there are some things that are still working. When you appreciate God for what is working in your life, you are reminding Him of what is not working. Jesus appreciated God for 5 loaves of bread and 2 fishes.
4 ) When you focus on self makes one miserable. Living for yourself alone does not give joy. Help others around you spiritually, financially, materially. Make others rejoice and see the joy of God multiply in your life. Luke 6:38 “Give and it will be given to you; good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.”
1 ) Father by Your mercy remove my name from the book of sorrow, failure, setbacks, in Jesus Name.
2 ) Father by Your mercy write our names in the book of success, goodness, breakthroughs, transformation in Jesus Name.
3 ) Father please give me a next level encounter in Jesus Name. Amen.
I decree and declare by the power of Holy Ghost that this will be the best month you have ever seen since you were born. As from today the Most High God will go ahead of us to remove mountains and hindrances in our ways and restore unto us joy unspeakable, clear vision, peace that passeth all understanding in Jesus Name, Amen!
Please go with God and His presence be with us in Jesus Christ Name, Amen!
Thank You Jesus.
Jesus Loves You.
