Great joy awaits you

Good morning child of God, and therefore heir of God and in so speaking joint heir with Christ!

You are qualified even this morning to share in the inheritance of the Saints.

You know this?

I know you do Now, if we are fully persuaded about this truth, this living truth then we must be able to run the race with diligence, seek God diligently for He’s a rewarder of such.

*Unto us today are shoes that must be taken off, we may be afraid of the thorns that may prick and scorpions that may bite the bare feet, but remember it’s a holy place, nothing will harm you.

Take them offer and behold the Lord of Lords an assignment

*There are stones covering up for the dead, rotten portions of us, that we truly desire to revive, and at times when Christ asks us to roll them away, we’re afraid of the awful stench and we’re certain about no more life in there.

I however beseech you today to roll out such stones, unashamed and see life at Jesus’ word*

*Put to death the body that desires the easily ensnaring sin, the flesh that seeks gratification of what wages war against our soul*

Put on the attitude of Jesus, who thought of the things above, who endured the pain and shame and scorn of the death on the cross for the joy that awaited Him.

For now He’s is exalted, glorified, given a name above every name and seated at the right hand of the father

*Fix your eyes on Jesus, in the prize that awaits.

We must be immune and insensitive to any other prize that the world and self offers.

*Let’s position ourselves in the place of addition of all things we seek, that is the place of seekin His kingdom and righteousness*

I desire that our minds be filled up with things above, beholding in the Holy Spirit the unseen, unheard unfelt things that the Father has in store for me and you.

*If we know the prize, the joy, the glory that is to come, we won’t let anything stand in the way*

Always Remember this truth, 2Co 4:16 — 2Co 4:18 (NKJV) 16

Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day.

17 For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory,

18 while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen.

For the things which are seen are temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.

And do not forget Romans 8. 18 [But what of that?]

For I consider that the sufferings of this present time (this present life) are not worth being compared with the glory that is about to be revealed to us and in us and for us and conferred on us!

Your joy is your sorrow unmasked.

And the self same well from which your laughter rises was often times filled with your tears.<

And how else can it be?

The deeper that sorrow carves into your being, the more joy you can contain.

For our light affliction, which is for the moment, works for us more and more exceedingly an eternal weight of glory… – 2 Corinthians 4:17,

There are times when we may wonder if God is ever fair as we consider the suffering of many in this life.

Is it fair that some are rich while others barely have something to

Is it fair that some are strong while others linger in a bed of sickness and pain?

Is it ever fair that others enjoy the love of special people in their lives while others remain utterly cold and alone?

Indeed, if all that we have is this earthly life, everything would seem to be unjust.

But in the light of eternity, we can see things in a whole new way.

Not that our knowledge of heaven could ever take away earth’s wounds today.

But that this small light can give us hope, some consolation and strength, and faith to rise again each day.

There is one day we can look forward to.

A day of justice and mercy. A day of fullness, of joy and of love.

In that day, it is those who have hungered who shall be filled.

It is those who have grieved that shall shout unceasingly with joy!

Only then can we truly say that we have suffered but for a moment, we have been alone but for a day.

And every wound our hearts have suffered have each carved out more space for happiness for us, happiness that far far outweighs all our tears and pain.

A certain beggar, named Lazarus, was laid at his gate, full of sores, and desiring to be fed with the crumbs that fell from the rich man’s table.

Oh Yes, even the dogs came and licked his sores.
