Joy From The "Inside-Out"
"These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full. This is my commandment, That ye love one another, as I have loved you." - John 15:11-12
God wants us all to walk in the full understanding of HIS Joy in our lives so that we can draw blessings unlimited from HIM. The Bible says: “Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.” - Isaiah 12:3. How can we draw without knowing the source in which we will draw from; the source is very important likewise the full knowledge of what we can draw from this source.
The Source Of Thy Joy. It is the desire of the Father our God, that you have joy and manifest joy in all that you do. Hence God gave us HIS Joy by HIS Holy Spirit through Jesus Christ our lord. Jesus said: “But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.” - John 4:14.
Joy comes only by the Holy Spirit of God in your inner-man or your inward man. When we receive Jesus Christ into our life as our Lord and Savior, we are simply coming to drink from the water that will never make us thirst no more, because it’s become the source that will quash all our thirst.
Our inward man is renewed day by day, hence we lack no joy. The Bible says: “For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal.” - 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 (Ephesians 3:16-17, Romans 2:29).
The Knowledge Of Thy Joy. There is a need for good understanding of the joy of God in our lives that is after we have received of HIM and dwell in HIM there have be a full knowledge of our state of life without no one telling us.
The Bible says: “For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God:” - Romans 8:15-16
Beloveth! Is the Spirit of God bearing witness with your spirit? This you don’t need someone to tell you about it, you will know in your spirit if you are in HIM and HE in you. Paul says: “So then they that are in the flesh cannot please God. But ye are not in the flesh, but in the Spirit, if so be that the Spirit of God dwell in you. Now if any man have not the Spirit of Christ, he is none of his.” - Romans 8:8-9. Read (1 John 3:23-24, 1 Corinthians 2:9-16)
Guiding Thy Joy. It’s your responsibility to protect, keep and dwell in that which God has given to you by HIS Holy Spirit in your inner-man. If the Bible says: “…for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength.” - Nehemiah 8:10. Then you need to guide your strength and don’t lose it to the world or allow the world to make you powerless by taken away your strength.
To do this we need to keep our salvation, it’s so precious, and it’s the gift of God and its cause God the precious blood of HIS Son Jesus. What are you doing with your salvation? Answer it to Jesus! The bible says: “Wherefore, my beloved, as ye have always obeyed, not as in my presence only, but now much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling.” -Philippians 2:12
Influencing Your World, Your Atmosphere And Surrounding By Thy Joy. If in the pass you have depend on the world, friends, family or career as your source for joy. Now is the time for a “Rethink”. A time for your to influence them that have been influencing your life now with the joy of Lord in you. Your deliverance, healing, breakthrough and unlimited blessings come from thy joy in your inward man. Favor, miracles and all your desire can be drawn right from the well of life in you through Jesus our Christ by HIS Holy Spirit in your inward man. Now you become a donor/giver of blessings and miracles to others, because your joy is full in Jesus Christ. Amen!
Jesus said: “And ye now therefore have sorrow: but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you. And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you. Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.” -John 16:22-24
This week: Beloved, preach thy joy! Be an example to many; let your joy beginning to preach the gospel to others, so much that they now want what you have in Jesus. That is, they now desire the Holy Spirit in you.
Finally, Let thy joy be from the “Inside-out”. The inward man revealing Himself in you! With you! And through you!
Remember the Bible says: “These things have I spoken unto you in proverbs: but the time cometh, when I shall no more speak unto you in proverbs, but I shall shew you plainly of the Father. At that day ye shall ask in my name: and I say not unto you, that I will pray the Father for you: For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me, and have believed that I came out from God.” -John 16:25-27
