The Gift of Joy

The joy of the Lord is not the joy of circumstance or the joy of emotions.  The joy of the Lord, the joy of our salvation, is a gift from God beyond this world.  It is resurrection joy that defies circumstances.  It is joy before you see the results.  It is the victory before the victory.  Receive the joy of the Lord in this inspiring, prophetic message.  Let Jesus give you joy by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Enjoy!

Breaking The Yoke of Debt Part 6

In this series of messages, God has been preparing our heart to receive His promised blessings.  The breakthrough God is working in us is for our financial life as well as every  other area of our lives.  In order to prepare us, God has been breaking “yokes” in our hearts: greed, lust, complacency, and unbelief.

In this message, God is calling us to SING OUR WAY TO VICTORY!  I believe the Lord is calling us to rise up and sing, rejoice, shout in faith before we see the breakthrough.  The victory always begins on the inside.  Faith sees and sings before the answer comes, before the breakthrough happens.

Enjoy and sing your way to victory!

Refreshing Worship part 2

Part 1: Refresh the heart of God with your praise

Part 2: when God is refreshed, he refreshes you.

When God is refreshed, he refreshes us. When we praise him, he sits down; when he sits down, his brings his kingdom (Psalm 22:3)– his kingdom full of joy, peace, righteousness, freedom, wisdom, and power. He has everything you need! God created us so we could enjoy him and he could enjoy us. Bring him joy through worship and you will encounter the presence of the Lord full of his enjoyment of you.  


Acts 3:19
Repent therefore and be converted, that your sins may be blotted out, so that times of refreshing may come from the presence of the Lord, 


Psalm 23:5
You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies;You anoint my head with oil; My cup runs over.

Give God a sacrifice of praise; pour out all your heart in worship. You will find your heart flooded with peace and joy. God is an extravagant giver and we were created to be filled with his joy and pleasure. 


Psalm 16:9-11
Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoices; My flesh also will rest in hope.10For You will not leave my soul in Sheol,Nor will You allow Your Holy One to see corruption.11You will show me the path of life;In Your presence is fullness of joy;At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

When God appeared to Abraham (recorded in Genesis 18), Abraham first honored God, hosting his presence, seeking to refresh God’s heart. Only THEN was the power of God released, only THEN was Abraham’s prayer answered.  


Genesis 18:9-10
THEN they said to him, “Where is Sarah your wife?”So he said, “Here, in the tent.”10 And He said, “I will certainly return to you according to the time of life, and behold, Sarah your wife shall have a son.”

Abraham and Sarah had a promise from God; they waited 25 years to conceive a child together. When God appeared to Abraham and his presence was honored, Abraham’s desire became reality.  The power to fulfill God’s promise was received when God’s presence was received. 

Refresh the heart of God with praise and he will refresh your heart with the blessings and promises of his kingdom.
