There are personal blessings that salvation brings to you and this then makes you a blessing to your world. A merry heart is one of the keys to bringing out these blessings. It is a key to walking in the power of the life of God that is in the heart of a child of God. The devil breaks your spirit by introducing sorrow to your heart, your mind and your very life itself. What happens in your heart will affect your body, your mind and your very life itself.Anything that finds its way into your heart, will find its way into your life. As your heart is, so your life goes. What you truly have that you can give to another human being is what is in your heart. And that’s why God wants us to cultivate a heart that is full of joy and bubbling with the life of God so that we can transfer positive forces to those around us.
To build up joy in your heart, you need to spend time in the presence of God and get in touch with the anointing. The Bible says,“…in thy presence is fullness of joy….” If you want your joy to be full, you will spend some time in the presence of God. Joy will come into your heart as you spend time in His presence. “…at thy right hand there are pleasures forevermore”, means you must get in contact with the anointing,which is the word. The “right hand” is talking of the power and the anointing of God. Getting in contact with the anointing of God is going to bring the pleasures of God into your life.
The pleasure of God’s anointing comes into the heart of a man when he stays close to the anointing of God. God turns your captivity around by sending joy to you. When God wants to turn your captivity, whether as a person, family, or nation, He begins to send laughter and new songs, and if you are going to receive the victory God has given, you must yield to the flow of Joy.
PRAYER: Lord, I receive grace to regularly tarry in your presence and develop the force of joy in my heart. I receive grace to always recognize and connect to the flow of Joy in Jesus’ name. Amen.
