One of the great promises in Scripture is that joy cometh! What this means to the Child of God is that joy came, is coming, and will always come. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever (Heb. 13:8 KJV).

In Him there is always the promise of renewal. "…weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning" (Ps. 30:5).

Morning renewal is a now and ever present lifestyle to those walking in faith:
Restore unto me the joy of thy salvation; and uphold me with thy free spirit.
(Ps. 51:12)
What exactly is a morning renewal? By that I mean the joy that comes when the bright Morning Star arrives; when the Sun of Righteousness is arisen in our hearts; when He Who is the Divine One sheds His Light abroad. In other words, you don't have to wait for a sunrise—you only need a "Sonrise" to dispel the darkness of your night!
But unto you who fear my name shall the [Son] of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.
(Mal. 4:2 KJV)
By accepting the joy that God has given in the Person of His Son, we come to realize that joy is not outside of our reach, but rather is received by those who believe.

We learn that this kind of joy is not circumstantial or situational, but that it rests solely upon our relationship with Jesus. We find that we can rely upon the Son-rise before the sunrise, and that the darkness of hopelessness, fear, and depression will fade away in light of His glorious grace.

Give It Away!
It is true that God so loves each individual that He gave His Only Begotten Son. It is also true that it gives the Father great pleasure to bless each of His covenant children. However, the love and provision of God was never meant to stop there.

Every time a child of God is blessed there is also a release of blessing that is meant to flow out to others:
And in thy seed shall all the nations of the earth be blessed; because thou hast obeyed my voice.
(Gen. 22:18 KJV)

Now to Abraham and his seed were the promises made. He saith not, And to seeds, as of many; but as of one, And to thy seed, which is Christ.
(Gal. 3:16 KJV)
You are an heir of the promise made to Abraham as you abide in the Anointed One, Jesus. In Christ, you are blessed and are meant to be a blessing.

There is a song that says, "The world didn't give it, and world can't take it away." Joy is a spiritual truth that cannot be provided or counterfeited by the world. It is not natural in its origin and cannot be lost by the occurrence of natural events.

Neither can Satan take your joy from you. He didn't give it, and he can't take it away. If you let him steal your joy, he will steal everything else because you will become weak. "…The joy of the Lord is your strength" (Neh. 8:10 KJV).

When Joy Cometh, it is meant to be given away. The revelation of how to appropriate the same joy that Jesus has with the Father must be imparted to as many as will receive it.

Sowing will always cause you to reap the benefits. Satan will be overcome and you will live in resurrection power. "…They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony."

Praise God for His Joy!
