Your Bridge to a Life of Joy
Joy is not a feeling of happiness. It is not a feeling at all. Joy is a state of being. It makes no difference to the joyful man if he is sitting in the offices of the CEO or cleaning the floors of the same office. It makes no difference whether she is the famous Chef at the hotel or the dishwasher who cleans after.
In the heart and mind lurks that delight bursting out to flourish in the light. No pleasure, no treat or thrill makes up for the joy dwelling in the heart of a forgiving and triumphant person.
Obedience is more than treasures. Listening to the voice of God inside you and obeying the direction, is received by Him sweeter than all the aromatic incense and perfumes offered in sacrifice. A sacrifice of obedience is more pleasurable to the heart of God than a million works one can do in the name of religion.
Stop asking God for a blessing on your projects and do His projects. If it is His idea, He will bless it. With that you receive the joy unspeakable. Joy unattainable except by obedience and stepping out in faith.
Never listen to the naysayers who keep you down. If you know you are right, do it. Do not allow others to keep you from receiving your joy that only comes from obedience to the Father.
Step out in faith to receive joy.
