11/03/17  TO GIVE HIM JOY

Last night I did this page in my Inspire art Bible..  I was reminded that the joy of the Lord is actually HIS joy, and we give Him joy and pleasure when we do what pleases Him.



CONFIRMATION:  I turned to this Word to Ponder:


My dearest wife, My bride, how I have longed to hold you and embrace you as My own. I know your cares, I know your fears, I know your struggles and your uphill journey to overcome. The road has only become steeper in time and more narrow. Yes, I know your failings. I understand your pain and your many tears. Did you think I would come to you to scold you?


Do you really want to quit and give up? Never. As you come to the end of your rope in so many battles, I only ask that you totally lean all your weight upon Me. Let Me carry you to your goal. Allow Me access to put the pieces of your life back together again and I will sustain you in My peace. Resist meddling in My will and bring all things to Me in prayer. I will bring you the answers you need and help you resolve issues for which you have no answers. I will help you soar above it all, and come safely to your destination, being rooted deeply in My love for you.


You have been asleep in your understanding of My earnest love for you and My desires over you. I have earnestly waited for you and am searching you out from the places in which you are hiding. Did you think you could hide from Me, My dear one? You have known tears, but I want to teach you to laugh. There will come a day when you shall throw your head back and belly laugh with Me! Impossible? Not in My vocabulary. Why don’t you follow Me into a journey of new beginnings and I will take you there? I will replace all your shame and your sorrow and give you double portion joy.


Ps 56:8-13 TLB
You have seen me tossing and turning through the night. You have collected all my tears and preserved them in your bottle! You have recorded every one in your book. The very day I call for help, the tide of battle turns. My enemies flee! This one thing I know God is for me! I am trusting God-oh, praise his promises! I am not afraid of anything mere man can do to me! Yes, praise his promises. I will surely do what I have promised, Lord, and thank you for your help. For you have saved me from death and my feet from slipping, so that I can walk before the Lord in the land of the living.


Isa 61:7 NLT
Instead of shame and dishonor, you will inherit a double portion of prosperity and everlasting joy.
