Art of Living #34

Åґ☂ ◎ḟ ʟ☤√ḯη❡ #34 : "Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I will say, rejoice!" (Phil 4:4).
Ѧ℘☺﹩☂◎łḯ¢ €ϰ℘øüηḓ : This is one of my favourite verse in the Bible, because it amazes me to think that I have the God-potential within me to live joyfully rejoicing all the time [24/7/365]. But this potential to remain joyful lies within the will of God and His spiritual boundary. We cannot rejoice naturally by our own strength, but we have a choice as God's children to let the joy of the Lord which lies in our spirit-man to come out and fill our soul. This joy unspeakable will be experienced as we believe the word of God instead of our negative feelings that the devil stirs up in our soul (1 Peter 1:8).

The number one weapon of the enemy is to discourage all believers by stirring up condemnation and then make the believers to focus on all the negative aspects of their life instead of all the positive ones that the Lord has done and is continuing to do in their lives. If a believer pitches his tent in the valley of despair and grief, then Satan knows for sure that the effective service of that believer for God will be completely stopped and made ineffective. All believers have the ability to rejoice all the time in the Lord. 'Rejoice' means 'release the joy that is already within your spirit man again in to your soul.' It is a decision to believe the word of God that makes us rejoice and live in this glory-realm inspite of the depressive mountains of problems or surroundings that remain unmoved. God laughs at the devil when he thinks that he can defeat us through giving us more and more problems. God always has a final laugh and solution for all our seeimgly unsolvable problems.

When we rejoice in the Lord, it is a sacrifice we do to declare to the heavens and the earth that we believe what God says He will do (Psa 27:6). It is easy to praise and rejoice in the Lord when we receive answers to our problems. But when we choose to rejoice in the Lord in the midst of all our trials that God has allowed in our lives, then will the Father God will be greatly glorified before the angels in heaven and before people on earth. A mature man and woman of God can stay perpetually in the supernatural heavenly zone of rejoicing in the Lord and bring heaven on earth almost all the time. But we need to start with small things now in our lives, so that we can learn to increase in maturity and rejoice more and more in the Lord as time goes by. If you have been going through financial difficulties, just confess today, "The Lord is able to provide all my needs according to the supernatural favor and riches which I own by Christ Jesus (Phil 4:19)." Then belive it from you heart and start to thank and praise God for His answers. HaHa! HaHa! A supernatural joy will desend upon you in JESUS glorious name. Begin to say, "In Jesus I have no fear (1 John 4:18), In Jesus I overcome the world (1 John 5:4), In Jesus I have no condemnation (Romans 8:1) and In Jesus I have victory (1 John 5:4)." If you have been weak in any particular area where you have been again and again defeated by Satan, say now, "I am strong in the Lord" (Joel 3:10, c) and begin to praise and thank the Lord. More supernatural joy will descend and make you life a heaven on earth. Apply the same in all other areas of your need and choose to rejoice supernaturally in the Lord! WHEN YOU REJOICE ALWAYS, YOU HAVE MADE A GOOD CHOICE TO EXPERIENCE HEAVEN ON EARTH AND BRING THAT SAME HEAVEN TO OTHERS WHO COME YOUR WAY. Much Blessings.....
