Word for Today:Where there is no joy, there is no God.
Ministry of the Word : True Spirituality
Improving Our Spiritual Understanding
“Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore” (Psalm 16:11).
God does not dwell in the atmosphere of sadness, bitterness, hatred or anger. If you are not joyful, it is unlikely you are dwelling in the presence of God. You may spend a long time praying but do you pay attention to your emotions or the state of your mind ? How do you know God is hearing? The presence of God is characterised not just with joy but FULLNESS of joy. Prophet Isaiah said:
“Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation” (Isaiah 12:3).
If you have been redeemed by the precious blood of our Lord Jesus Christ, you have every reason to be joyful, because your tomorrow shall be alright. Your future is guaranteed. No other joy can be greater than than the joy of salvation; I mean the joy of walking in the truth of the Word.
“Therefore the redeemed of the LORD shall return, and come with singing unto Zion; and everlasting joy shall be upon their head: they shall obtain gladness and joy; and sorrow and mourning shall flee away” (Isaiah 51:11).
To grow spiritually requires daily meditation with the word of God (Joshua 1:8) and seeking first the kingdom of God and its righteousness (Matthew 6:33). It also requires total fear of God, and spiritual training in the word of God: “Train yourself to be godly”(1Tim 4:7-8 NIV).
Dear Father, please fill us with your joy and presence in Jesus mighty name. Amen.
Yours in the Vineyard of Christ.
