True Joy

“You keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on you, because he trusts in you.”

Isaiah 26:3

Nehemiah_8-10: Then he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: 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 he said unto them, Go your way, eat the fat, and drink the sweet, and send portions unto them for whom nothing is prepared: for this day is holy unto our Lord: neither be ye sorry; for the joy of the LORD is your strength

You don’t have to look far today to see that too many people lack joy in their lives. They’re like that little boy whose mother took him to Disneyland. He was right in the middle of Disneyland, “The Happiest Place on Earth,” just crying his eyes out. So his mother looked at him and said, “You’re going to have fun whether you like it or not!”

So often today, people mistake happiness for joy. They think, “This made me happy, so it must be where I’m going to get the most out of life.” But the problem is that there are so many things today that can make you happy, but will never give you joy. They gratify, but they’ll never truly satisfy.

Real joy comes about not because of our circumstances, but from our heart’s focus. Joy is a condition that surpasses our momentary afflictions and concentrates on the promises that we have in the Lord Jesus Christ. He is the only one who can bring you true joy.

Stop looking for real and lasting joy in fleeting pleasures. Find your joy solely in Jesus Christ, trusting in His promises of deliverance and salvation from negative circumstances and entrusting yourself wholly to Him!

Instead Of Finding Joy In Fleeting Pleasures, Look To Christ To Give You Real And Lasting Peace No Matter Your Circumstances!

Psalms_16-11: Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Prayer And Joy. Sermon and prayer point by Pastor E A Adeboye

Prayer And Joy. Sermon and prayer point by Pastor E A Adeboye

Psalms_16-11: Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Psalms_16-11: Thou wilt shew me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at thy right hand there are pleasures for evermore.

Memorise

Romans_12-12: Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer

Romans_12-12: Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer

Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.
John 16:24

Read: John 16:23-24
23 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.
24 Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full.

1-John_5-14: And this is the confidence that we have in him, that, if we ask any thing according to his will, he heareth us

Message

Ephesians_3-20: Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us

Ephesians_3-20: Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us

It’s amazing to know that prayer causes one’s voice to be heard in Heaven. Of the over six billion people on earth, do you know that God can single out your voice for His personal attention? Indeed, when you pray, God hears your voice, and through this, He gives solutions to long-standing problems in your life. Every stubborn problem in your life will receive a divine touch today. As you call upon the Lord, he will hear your cry in Jesus’ Name.

From Zacharias’ experience, we learn that prayer causes you to hear good news (Luke 1:5-17). When the angel of God met Zacharias in the temple while the congregation prayed, he broke the good news he had been expecting to hear for such a long time. This implies that within every unpleasant situation, there is some good news tucked inside that only prayer can unearth. This also connotes that there is a link between prayer and joy. When you pray, you will hear some good news about your situation or circumstance which will bring you joy. No wonder Jesus, in our Bible reading today, says we should ask until our joy is full. Have you been receiving negative news lately? You need to engage your prayer gear, and good news will locate you. Very soon, you shall hear the good news that will transform your life.

Moreover, prayer equally provides details about future events. No wonder the Bible in Jeremiah 33:3 says:
“Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.”
It was in the place of prayer that the birth of John was foretold. It was also in the midst of prayer that God’s plan and purpose for John was disclosed. If you want God to reveal your tomorrow to you, pray. If you do not want to be kept in the dark concerning fundamental issues of your life, pray. Some believers go through very crucial periods of their life without effective prayers. No wonder they mishandle opportunities that come their way. As you pray today, ask God to give you insight into your future. This season, your prayers will work for you. Call on the Lord now while He may be found. It is well with you.

James_1-5: If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

James_1-5: If any of you lack wisdom, let him ask of God, that giveth to all men liberally, and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.

Key Point

God may be listening to multitudes of people, but He still hears your voice.

Romans_15-13: Now the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, that ye may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Ghost

Jesus is coming with joy to the sky
Oh happy day! Oh happy day
Then all who love Him shall heaven-ward fly
Oh happy day! happy day

Oh, happy day! happy day

Parents, and children shall then again meet
Oh happy day! Oh happy day
Sisters and brothers, oh. it will be sweet
Oh happy day! happy day
We missed them on earth, to
Jesus they went
We love them as ever, their absence lament
Soon we shall meet them, and then he content
Oh happy day! happy day

Are we all ready, should Jesus now call
Oh happy day! Oh, happy day
Would each one answer, the great and the small
Oh, happy day! happy day
We long to rise up and with Thee to be
Thy face, blessed Jesus, our Saviour to see
Would you then dear children. sing sweetly with me
Oh, happy day! happy day

Some will stay weeping unable to sing
Oh happy day! oh happy day
Yet all may rejoice their glad praise bring
Oh happy day! happy day
For Jesus still waits, He tarries
that we
May trust in His name, and thus ready may be
When, brightly beaming, His glory we see
Oh, happy day! happy day. Amen!

2-Timothy_2-3: Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ

“But we are not of them who draw back unto perdition; but of them that believe to the saving of the soul”.

 

Hebrews 10:39 (KJV)

 

 

 

We are not of them that look back unto perdition. Paul says we are of them that believe to the saving of the soul. We don’t look back. In Luke 9:62, the scripture says “. . . No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God”.

 

 

 

You are not fit for the kingdom of God if you begin to look back. There are terrors and problems out there but don’t look back. There are challenges out there to overwhelm you but don’t look back. It is time to move forward. Paul says we have not yet attained nor made perfect but this one thing we do, forgetting the things that are behind, we reach forth for the things that are before we press for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus (Philippians 3:12-14). These are days of Gods power. Don’t go back, move forward.

 

 

 

Jesus, for the joy that was set before him, endured the pains of the cross (Hebrews 12:2). He endured the cross and the opposition of sinners. It was painful but he endured it because of the joy that was set ahead of him. There is joy ahead of every cross road. All you need do is to keep going. The joy shall be made manifest. Weeping may endure for the night but joy cometh in the morning (Psalms 30:5).

 

 

 

We have a cloud of witnesses that are waiting for us at the banisters of heaven. No wonder in his departure commission, He said “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature” (Mark 16:15). Keep on moving forward. Don’t stop! No matter where you are, no matter the challenge facing you, don’t look back. I declare unto you today that you will not be defeated neither will you be overwhelmed. Your dreams and expectations shall materialise. You will realise your goal and arrive at your destiny. You will not go under in Jesus Christ name, Amen!

No joy was sweet before.

 

 

 

 

 

 

For us the world must lose its charms

Before the manger shrine,

When, folded in Thy mother’s arms

We see Thee Babe divine.

 

 

 

 

 

Thou Light of uncreated Light,

Shine on us, Holy Christ;

That we may keep Thy

birthday bright.

With service undefiled.

Weeping May Endure For A Night, But Joy Comes In The Morning. LAMENTATION AS PRAISE! By Pastor E A Adeboye

Psalms_30-5: For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

Psalms_30-5: For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

Memorise:

For his anger endureth but a moment; in his favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

Psalm 30:5

 

Read: Psalm 30:7-12

7  LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled.

8  I cried to thee, O LORD; and unto the LORD I made supplication.

9  What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit? Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth?

10  Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me: LORD, be thou my helper.

11  Thou hast turned for me my mourning into dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;

12  To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.

Message

A lamentation is a song of mourning or sorrow. In the Bible, lamentations were usually motivated by national disasters (2 Chronicles 35:25), by bereavement (2 Samuel 3:33-34), personal suffering (Psalm 102:1-11) or by the judgment of God (Amos 5:1-2). Lamentations could also be inspired by repentance as shown in Daniel 9:4-20.

A lamentation can contain praise to express thanksgiving and gratitude to the Almighty God. Such was the lamentation of Daniel in Daniel 9. It was laced with praises to God even though He was mourning the captivity of the children of Israel. No wonder the Lord heard his lamentation and quickly dispatched an archangel to comfort him. Jesus in Matthew 5:4 said:

 “Blessed are they that mourn: for they shall be comforted.”

This reveals that there is blessedness even in mourning. There is still a reason to glorify God for His goodness and His mercy even in mourning. It shows that though there is lamentation, there will be clear reasons to praise God at the end. Singing songs of sorrow can therefore lead to comfort.

An example of sorrow leading to comfort is seen when we lament for our sins, mistakes and errors in such a way that leads to genuine repentance. Such repentance leads to righteousness:

 “Now I rejoice, not that ye were made sorry, but that ye sorrowed to repentance: for ye were made sorry after a godly manner, that ye might receive damage by us in nothing. For godly sorrow worketh repentance to salvation not to be repented of: but the sorrow of the world worketh death.”

2 Corinthians 7:9-10

In the above passage, the lamentation and sorrow of the Corinthians led to repentance. Paul rejoiced to see this genuine repentance take place in the life of the people. Godly sorrow brings repentance unto salvation. What started as lamentation or a song of sorrow, produced reasons to praise God at the end. Lamentation becomes a source of praise when godly sorrow produces genuine repentance. Such repentance leads to the joy of salvation, divine approval and blessing.

Prayer Point:

Father, let Your Church experience godly sorrow that leads to genuine repentance in Jesus’ Name.
