The Joy of the Lord

I wake up in the mornings brimming with love, joy, and peace in my heart, and my hope placed securely in The Lord. I literally couldn’t stop believing, even if I tried, that all of my wildest dreams are coming true. Its almost comical to me when reality tries to tell me otherwise. ‘So we fix our eyes, not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, because what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.’

We have eternity in our hearts! How can we not be joyful? We are literally going to life forever! If you are a follower of Christ, you have been given immortality.

I have eternal life!

I am not a mortal.

I have supernatural powers.

I am a warrior prophetess in God’s Kingdom army.

Walking in our calling, living out our purpose, and having supernatural powers are what we humans long for; its what we make our movies and write our stories about. Walking in supernatural power is in our deepest desires because its been put there by our Creator.

And God never places desires in our hearts for shits and giggles. He longs to fulfill them. He is ready and able to bring them to pass.

‘I declare to you, brothers and sisters, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.”

“Where, O death, is your victory?
Where, O death, is your sting?”
The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.

Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, stand firm. Let nothing move you. Always give yourselves fully to the work of the Lord, because you know that your labor in the Lord is not in vain.’

1 Corinthians 15:50-58
