“A joyful heart is good medicine, But a broken spirit dries up the bones.” (Pro 17:22)

The Word of God dwelling in our heart:

The word of God dwelling inside our heart is not a burden, RATHER IT’S PLEASURE AND ENJOYMENT. Let the word of God dwell inside your heart daily and everyday, and every moment, and that’s part of meditation.

You do not need to take it as a burden, you can think on the words that are inside your heart while walking on the street, while sleeping in your bed, while taking rest, while cooking, while you’re in the bathroom and anytime, and you will get more revelations out of it, God will give you more revelations in your thought, in your heart. They are pleasures and enjoyments.

The world looks for pleasures, GOD GAVE US MANY THINGS IN THIS WORLD THAT WE MAY ENJOY LIFE. But true pleasures are found in the word of God dwelling inside of us. No matter what we work in this world, there is no true joy without the word of God dwelling inside of us.

– When we say WORSHIP, it’s about the word of God dwelling inside our hearts.
– When we say “The presence of God”, it’s about the word of God dwelling inside our hearts.
– When we say “Meditation”, it’s about the word of God dwelling inside our heart,
– When we say, “Revelations”, it’s the word of God dwelling inside our heart,
– When we say, The Joy of the Lord”, its about the Word of God dwelling inside our hearts.

THEY ARE ALL ABOUT THE WORD OF GOD DWELLING INSIDE OUR HEART.

We found joy in the Lord because the Word of God dwells inside of us. THE JOY OF THE LORD IS FOUND ONLY THROUGH THE WORD OF GOD DWELLING INSIDE OF US.

The Ultimate place where we find JOY is in our inner being. The word of God dwelling in our heart is the foundation for the Joy of the Lord.

No matter what we work in this world, Only the Word of God dwelling in our heart will give us lasting joy.

JOY IS STRENGTH, JOY IS MEDICINE:

A Joyful heart is a good medicine, and the joy of the Lord is your strength.

Many might have not really considered JOY as part of the fruit of the Spirit, Joy is one of the fruit of the Spirit. Always murmuring, always complaining things, always getting frustrated or angry when questions being asked in good manners, always screaming at your kids or others for nothing, always being critical, always being negative, they all are lack of this fruit called JOY. Therefore this fruit called Joy is an important part of a Believers life.

The apostles left the Sanhedrin, REJOICING because they had been counted worthy of suffering disgrace for His Name. (Acts 5:41)

REJOICE IN THE LORD ALWAYS; again I will say, rejoice! Let your gentle spirit be known to all men. The Lord is near. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. (Phil 4:4-7)

The Apostle Paul wrote this from prison, he was in chained for Christ, it was the time of Nero, Believers of Christ were mistreated, abused, tortured, persecuted and put to prison, killed, and burned. They were burned and used as a torch for parties. And in the midst of that Paul wrote, “Rejoice in the Lord Always”, again I will say, rejoice!.

“A JOYFUL HEART” and “THE JOY OF THE LORD”, THEY ARE KEYS FOR HEALING A WOUNDED HEART, A WOUNDED SPIRIT, “A joyful heart is good medicine, But a broken spirit dries up the bones.” (Pro 17:22)

AND THE JOY OF THE LORD IS THE KEY TO STRENGTH. “The joy of the LORD is your strength!” (Neh 8:10)

Whatever situations you might be going through, whatever problems you might be facing, whatever they may be, whatever might be your condition at this moment, let the Joy of the Lord be your strength. God Bless You.

A Joyful heart is a good medicine, and the joy of the Lord is your strength.

God desires our hearts to be filled with Truths, truths of God’s word, truths about Him, Truths of the Kingdom of God, and He wants us to live in the truths. Especially for Present Truths, they are Foundational Revelations, they are Kingdom Foundations, Foundations for the Kingdom of God, Revelational truths of the Kingdom. And God wants the Word of God to dwell in our hearts richly.

Ps 51:6 – YOU DESIRE TRUTH IN THE INNERMOST BEING, And in the hidden part You will make me know wisdom.

DELIGHT YOURSELF IN THE LAW OF THE LORD:

Blessed is the one
Who does not walk in step with the wicked/ counsel of the wicked/ wicked counsel
Or stand in the way that sinners take
Or sit in the company of mockers. (the opposite of mocking is to value).
But whose DELIGHT IS IN THE LAW OF THE LORD,
And who meditates (thinking, considering, prayerfully thinking so as to get an insight) on his law day and night.
That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, (continually dwelling with God by the word, the word of God continually dwelling in the heart)
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.
Psalm 1:1-3

No matter what’s your culture, there must have been 1000’s and 1000’s of cultures in this world, and no matter where you’re from, the truths of God’s Kingdom remains the same.
“We are justified by our faith, we are saved by grace, if you don’t believe in Jesus Christ you’re going to hell”. “Hell is not meant for you but heaven is meant for you”, “Jesus Christ is Lord”, “Jesus Christ is Lord of Heaven and earth”.

May the Word of God richly dwell in your heart…
