YOU CAN BE FILLED WITH JOY.
“So far you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.” John 16:24
Jesus Christ said in the passage above that it is possible for you to be full of joy or to have perfect joy. In other words, He was saying that it is possible for you to have absolutely no sorrow. Many people appear fine on the outside but are dying inside. Many people have sorrows they cannot share and problems they hide beneath their appearance.
However, God can completely take away sorrows and heal those with a broken heart (Psalm 147:3). If you are currently experiencing sorrows or problems you cannot share, you will be healed today, in the name of Jesus Christ.
Many years ago, one of my daughters came to me and asked me to pray for her. I asked her what she wanted me to pray for, but she said I didn’t need to know, and when the prayer was answered, she would come back and share the testimony with me. I prayed for her, and to the glory of God, a few days later, she came back to share her testimony. She was 20 years old, but still suffered from bedwetting. She said she had never traveled with her friends on trips where they had to spend the night together, but with a simple prayer, the problem was solved. In the name of the Lord Jesus who has allowed you to read this teaching now, if there are hidden sorrows in your life, they will disappear today.
Jesus Christ said in John 16:24 that the way to transform all your sorrows into as much joy as you can be filled with is to ask Him. This may seem like a simple instruction, but it is a very powerful one. Instead of crying or worrying, simply pray. Matthew 6:27 says that no matter how worried you are, you cannot add a cubit to your stature. Beloved, stop worrying. Instead of spending time worrying, use that time to pray.
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Philippians 4:6
When troubling thoughts wake you up at night, get up and pray. If you pray and sing praises to God, sorrows will be taken from your heart and replaced with joy. I pray that from now on, your life will be filled with joy, in the name of Jesus.
