I heard, “Resurrection Power and Healing Grace is released!”
Victories are being won, but from the inside out. New Joy is flowing from the throne of grace to heavy hearts at this moment. I call it new joy because it surpasses understanding.
Amidst the chaos God is doing a deeper work of releasing us from burdens we have carried for years.
Many of us love Jesus. We sincerely do. We want to serve him, we wish we can fulfill his will upon our lives, but there is this war against us.
This war is over and over again so heavy upon us that we are often tempted to think we are not functioning in God’s Will, or maybe we have committed an unpardonable sin.
Sometimes it is as if the whole world is crashing over us. Rejection, persecution, shame, affliction, disgrace etc all come against us with a force only the divine support of God takes us through.
In this period how to you stay strong? How do you stay joyful amidst the dismal fiascos of life?
This is important because: JOY = Strength.
Joy gives you ability to stand and do God’s counsel.
“…for the joy of The LORD is your strength,” Nehemiah 8:10.
Yes, the Joy of The LORD equals my strength. I am strong when I am filled with the JOY of The LORD.
But how do I get filled with the JOY of The LORD?
Let us see how Jesus experienced his joy;
“Looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God,” Hebrew 12:2.
To overcome the present, Jesus took his eyes off the present and looked at the joy, the glory that was set before him. He looked beyond to the end glory.
Many of us have received prophetic words from The LORD, some through prophets, and some through the word. These prophecies carry a weight of God’s glory to be experienced by us.
But at the moment, many of us are finding it difficult to live a Joyful life since what has being declared is not yet manifesting in our lives.
Jesus lived in the reality of the word spoken to him by the father. His joy came not from the present situations but he kept seeing himself in the day of the fulfillment of God’s word.
This is how he was able to despise the shame. He would weigh the shame and the glory and the two were definitely unmatched.
There is a blessing for believing the promise before its fulfillment. Jesus told this to Thomas;
“Jesus said to him, “Because you have seen Me, do you now believe? Blessed (Happy, spiritually secure, and favored by God) are they who did not see (me) yet and yet believed”,” John 20:29 AMP.
Happiness, Joy is tied to believing the word whether fulfilled or yet to be fulfilled. The one who believes before the fulfillment is happy. Lives joyfully and spiritually secure in the favour of God. But the one who keeps doubting has neglected the blessings.
This is how Jesus was able to escape the shame and the depression he would have been under.
The word of God admonishes us not to despise prophesying, and we are also admonished to believe also the prophets of God for our prosperity. It could be spiritual, in the soul or bodily prosperity.
Look at what has been spoken by The LORD over you, look at the declaration of The LORD for this year from whomever he has lead you to believe.
See yourself already in the fulfillment of God’s vision upon your life and joy will bounce back, giving you strength to overcome the now and happily fulfill God’s counsel.
“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 4:18.
In an encounter with The LORD, I saw resurrection power manifesting as a Christian prayed over a corpse, and I also saw the healing power of God bringing healing to a sick body.
Then I heard, “Resurrection Power and Healing Grace is released upon My Church for the fulfillment of My Word in this era.”
Blessings in Christ,
