THE JOY OF THE LORD

THE BAR IS OPEN: Another great time of joy last night at Beacon of Hope on the Hill, in Belfast, Maine. The joy of the Lord was present that refreshed the people with the Lord's presence. It was uplifting to see everyone leave with such joy, freedom, and liberty. Never seen such happy people.

As King David said "You will show me the path of life: in thy presence is fulness of joy; at your right hand, there are pleasures for evermore (Psalms 16:11). And the Lord tells us through Nehemiah, "The joy of the Lord is your strength." (Neh. 8:10)

People are so hungry for the Lord and He is giving to them the desires of their heart - His fellowship with joy.

God is meeting the hunger of His people. One means is by giving to them a refreshing drink of His joy with a fresh infilling of His Spirit. You may not like the way the refreshing comes, as sometimes it's hilarious and may seem to be out of order, but the obvious liberty and freedom of the people reveal this truly is a ministry of the Spirit 

"For the Lord is that Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty" (2nd Cor. 3:17).

I believe this is a foretaste of the coming outpouring of the Spirit that will once again, restore the joy of the Lord back to His bride. The promise is given in Is. 61:7,

"For your shame, you shall have double, and for confusion, they shall rejoice in their portion: therefore in their land, they shall possess the double: EVERLASTING JOY shall be given to them. "

In His heart with love and joy - Roy
